We have two main reasonings behind holding this event. The first, simple reasoning, is to raise money to create a product line and host more events, and also produce more media. The second reason is to teach people how to skate safely. Everyday of my life, as I walk through my college or drive to work or scroll through social media, I see people riding their boards down hills with no safety gear, no real knowledge of their equipment, and no way to stop. It is as a result of all of these factors that we hear news stories of terrible accidents happening to innocent people. This event is held to reduce the number of these accidents as much as possible.
So come on out, win some gear, and learn how to skate safely!
