Stoked is a non-profit that mentors inner city kids through action sports: surfing, snowboarding, and skateboarding. They have a 100% graduation rate! WILD.
Many of these kids have never seen mountains before, and the lessons learned on those mountains are highly applicable to success in life; how to face your fears, how to get back up after falling, how to support your peers. I've had the privledge of being a snowboard mentor this year and it was a blast! Action sports provide an amazing opportunity for growth, development, and self-discovery — for both mentor and mentee.
As a member of Team Stoked, I am raising funds for this amazing charity.
Action sports provides a unique opportunity for empowering youth from under-served communities to achieve a more successful future.
We are willing to prove this by mentally and physically challenging ourselves through sport.
All the funds raised through Team Stoked will directly support Stoked's action sport-based youth development programs in New York City and Los Angeles.
