BENEFITING: STOKED MENTORING
ORGANIZER: STOKED MENTORING
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
Yes, I'm finally taking the plunge and not using the lottery as an excuse to skip this year's ING NYC Marathon! I'm doing it all for charity!
There are so many charities I would love to support, but I'm choosing Stoked, because I really stand behind their mission, which I cannot have said better myself: "to empower youth from under-served communities to achieve a more successful future by providing programs based in action sports culture that result in personal development, academic achievement, positive relationships, and a healthy lifestyle."
They offer really cool programs like Surf camp, Skate lessons, mentoring, hands-on community service with incentives (like beach cleaning and same-day surf or skate lessons), photography and apprenticeship courses, and more...
My individual fundraising goal is $2750. I normally tend to shy away from asking for money for anything, but this is something I truly do believe in, and I would really appreciate any support you can give to our team- even the teeny-tiniest of bit will help.

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Team Stoked is a group of tastemakers who proactively support the Stoked mission on foot, board, or bike. We believe that action sports are a means to empowering youth from under-served communities to achieve a more successful future. We are willing to prove this by mentally and physically challenging ourselves through sport.
This is Stoked's 4th consecutive year as a bronze level charity partner of the ING New York City Marathon! All the funds raised through Team Stoked will directly support Stoked's action sport-based youth development programs in New York City and Los Angeles.
