The Back Story:
Inspired by our cousin's Jessica Hensley’s fight with cancer and the support she received from the Baltimore based non-profit, Team Inspiration, we asked our friends at REAL Skateboards and their Actions REALized Program to collaborate with us to raise funds to support Team Inspiration and their quest to provide resources to promote the healing process for persons living with cancer.
All proceeds from the day's event will benefit the work of Team Inspiration. http://teaminspiration.org/
Thank you for the support! See you there!
