Save the Date May 21st for GRO & Zoe in NYC

Zoe Herishen is a skateboarder who keeps it fun and shares the fun.  She may be small – 2nd in hot pink & young 9 – but she’s making giant plans.

Zoe works with GRO Girls Riders Organization –  the first nonprofit organization open to all females in skateboarding, snowboarding and other action sports. Lessons learned through GRO help girls not only in action sports, but also in all areas of life empowering them to be leaders of positive change.

GRO operates throughout the United States and Zoe works with the New York City Chapter.   Zoe had the idea to have a GRO event at one of her favorite parks – the Brooklyn Bike Park – which is skateboard and longboard friendly.

One of the things I love about doing this blog is seeing all the amazing skateparks around the world.  Brooklyn Bike Park doesn’t disappoint and if I had a travel budget I’d so be there on Saturday May 21st.  And of course I love seeing girls turn their dreams into reality.

I’m thrilled that Zoe thought to invite me and share the invite on this blog.

I love getting invited to all girls skateboarding events – and an invitation from a 9 year old organizer with a vision and an idea to help bring girls from both skateboarding and long boarding together, and to teach some new girls to ride too – Zoe might be the best invite yet!

I hope this is the first of many annual Chica De Mayo skateboard events.  And I hope lots of girls go, have run, and then share there pictures and stories right here – skatingfashionista.com.

It’s this weekend – be sure to send pictures for sharing and here’s one of Zoe skating in New Jersey – so glad she’ll be in the collage of #girlscanskate USA because she inspires/encourages girls to skate for fun!
