CCS team rider Ryan Sheckler and the Sheckler Foundation hosted the Fifth annual Skate For A Cause event at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, California on Saturday. The event featured some red-hot ripping by some of the best in the game.
This year’s cause was to help raise funds for the Sheckler Foundation’s “Be the Change” initiative to help injured action sports athletes and children in need. This year the event managed to raise $93,000. Peach’s Neet Feet was the “Be the Change” winner, and they were provided with $10,000 in funding and support from the Sheckler Foundation. CCS was on hand to support and sponsored the best trick contest. Check out our photo recap below and check back here at The Corner in the next couple of days for a full video recap of the action.
The CCS booth was going off all day long. No beer but plenty of pong.
