EZ Rocks Skate For The Cure
EZ Rocks Skate for the Cure
By Daniel Haugen, Seattle, WA: evo is counting down the days ’til the EZ Rocks Skate For The Cure Event and Bellevue Skate Park 20th Anniversary Weekend. Basically, it’s a legendary collaboration and culmination of everything awesome for the purpose of fundraising A.L.D. screening programs. When I mean awesome, I mean you’ll see an all-star cast of air hungry shredders such as Mitchie Brusco, Pierre Luc Gagnon, Jake Brown, Jono Schwan and many other pros taking on the baddest of skateboarding features – the Mega Ramp. An amateur skate competition is being held to highlight some local talent as well, with cash prizes, multiple different age divisions, and a girls-only skate competition (There are limited spots so sign up soon!).
This family friendly event is going to be one to remember. Bring your deck along with you for some free skate clinics, or come and snag some autographs from the pros. There’s so much going on there won’t be a single moment of boredom. With live music performances, DJs, carnival games, awesome food, contests, and loads of free stuff, it’ll be impossible to run out of things to do and you’ll be contributing to a great cause.
A.L.D. is a devastating, terminal brain disease that only affects young boys, but can be treated if caught early enough through newborn screening. EZ Rocks has teamed up with The Zakes Foundation, a charity established to fund newborn screening programs and provide academic scholarships for at-need-youth, and evo could not be more excited to partner with their efforts.
Get ready for a weekend you won’t soon forget and just try to prepare your mind for the heavy amount of raw talent being compacted into the weekend. To get your tickets, or to send a donation for the event, head over to www.ezrocks.org, and we look forward to seeing you there!
