CASA DE AMPARO SKATE JAM

Saturday, January 11, 2014

12:00pm – 3:00pm

The first event at Casa de Amparo proved to be such a success that they invited RFTH back for a second skate jam. Word spread quickly between the Casa children about their fun experience with RFTH that even more children wanted to participate. This collection of old and new faces created an exciting dynamic for the volunteers, as they both got to foster old relationships and establish new ones.

The positive impact RFTH had on the community through skateboarding inspired more professional skateboarders, such as Ryan Bobier, to get involved. Again, with the help from our generous sponsors and donations, equipment & apparel were provided so that every child could leave with the necessary gear to skate on their own. The event proved to be as successful as the first and showed how RFTH could continue to expand & create new relationships with underprivileged youth through the power of mentorship.


CASA DE AMPARO SKATE JAM

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Rollin’ From The Heart’s first official event took place at Casa de Amparo. Casa is a refuge for at-risk children and parents that reinforces family bonds and steps away from cycles of abuse into healthy family relationships. RFTH collaborated with Casa to mentor the underprivileged youth. With generous donations from various skate company’s such as Brixton, Pro-Tec andSurfride, the children were provided with their own skateboard, helmet, pads & apparel. Professional & amateur skaters such as Brian Hansen, Jordan Taylor, and Sean Conover acted as mentors, teaching kids everything from screwing on the wheels to learning basic skate tricks. What went from a timid atmosphere turned into a loud and spirited day full of positive experiences & new friendships.
