The threat of rain & even rain itself couldn’t put a damper on the fun at the 8th Annual Skate for a Cause hosted by the Sheckler Foundation.
Ryan with numerous other pros like Christian Hosoi above and below in the bowl with Andy MacDonald
were at etnies Skatepark in Lake Forest, California to Skate for a Cause.
Since 2008 Ryan, his family, friends and business associates have been giving back to the community and action sports industry they love through fundraising events like Skate for a Cause.
The Sheckler Foundation’s mission is to
support great causes that directly benefit and enrich the lives of children and injured action sports athletes, inspiring them to “Be the Change”!
During the day there was fun for everyone at the carnival.
Booths had activities like Sombrero Tosses to win prizes. New this year was the addition of local non-profit booths. By raising awareness of these non-profits, the Sheckler Foundation introduced opportunities for how we can all participate in Being the Change.
Local non-profits at the event included: Ashley Wade Foundation, Nick’s Picks, SC Skatepark Coalition, TACA, Tilly’s Life Center and Traveling Stories.
There was tons of yummy food and
you had the opportunity to win signed decks from your favorite skaters.
Plus tons of fun & smiles in the etnies Skatepark. Before the contests, there was a demo by Adaptive Skate Kollective & WCMX

Was the weather less than perfect and shocking for Southern California? Yes, but so what. You can’t control everything. What you can control is how you respond to what happens. Rain or shine we can all choose to have fun, accept & support others, and be our best selves.
