October marks the month for breast cancer awareness. “Breast cancer occurs when malignant cells form and replicate in breast tissue. A great number of people–over 200,000 women and over 1,000 men–are diagnosed with the disease each year.” (Web Oct 22 2011, eHow Health)
In our efforts for the cause we are inviting girls & guys (yes!) – to join us for a casual skate session around Central Park, followed by a slide & slolam jam, free skate clinics, and raffles! We will be utilizing our passion for the sport as a vehicle to create awareness, while promoting a healthy lifestyle and spreading the stoke about the growing sport. This event will be hosted by talented and vibrant Bustin rider Maribeth McHugh!
