Skate Rising October 2017

Skate Rising’s October theme was “The Gift of You”.  The girls who attended heard examples of how their talents can be of service to the world and then had an opportunity to say what their talents were and how they share them.

Bryce Wettstein and Angela Strong shared how their talent of skateboarding allows them to be of service to others through teaching and encouraging.

I shared how my talent of writing allows me to be of service by connecting people throughout the world and Calli, Skate Rising’s founder & organizer reminded the girls that compassion is a talent that serves the world.

Next up was this month’s service project. The girls donated new teddy bears for Carol’s House, a local shelter for victims of domestic violence.

Each bear received a heartfelt message of encouragement.

Then it was time to skate.

Neal Mims & staff were on hand to help & encourage

The morning ended with a raffle.  This month’s raffle was extra special because the girls found out that Skate Rising will be a part of Girls’ Week at Woodward.  To celebrate one lucky girl won a ticket to the week and every girl can receive a $200 discount plus a $50 donation will be made to Skate Rising if they sign up now through EXPOSURE Skate.
