Professional skaters are not ones to sit back and reap the benefits of their sport without chipping in themselves. In order to give back to the skate community, Ryan Sheckler created the charitable organization, The Sheckler Foundation, and right now they are looking for donations from the skate community to help build new parks where the skaters just aren’t lucky enough to already have one.
December 12, 2012 (San Clemente, CA) – This holiday season, Ryan Sheckler’s Foundation is bringing people together to build a skatepark on the Port Gamble S’klallam reservation in Washington state, and they would like your help. Everyone that donates can enter to win a Ryan Sheckler prize pack, and any donation larger than $10 automatically gets a gift. Give and get: The gifts that donors automatically get include Be the Change Tech decks, the Plan B Sheckler Foundation collaboration skateboard deck or a limited-edition Ryan Sheckler Be the Change New Era hat.
All donations will help the Sheckler Foundation “Be the Change” by building a skatepark for the Port Gamble S’klallam tribe here: ShecklerFoundation.org.

About The Sheckler Foundation:
The Sheckler Foundation was founded as an avenue for Ryan Sheckler, his family, friends and business associates to give back to the community and industry that they are so grateful for. It is his ultimate desire to contribute to the many causes that directly benefit and enrich the lives of children. It is also his desire to support and fund programs that help injured action sports athletes. To achieve these goals, Ryan will use his influence to raise capital. The money raised will be used to fund medical research that focuses on curing childhood disease, spinal cord injuries and enrichment programs for children in underprivileged communities.
