The Skateboard Moms, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is gearing up for the 2009 Mighty Mama Skate-O-Rama. Our sixth annual!
This year, instead of simply a one-day event, we are cranking up that Mighty Mama vibe and holding both a Mother's Day event PLUS a 10-day road trip in June. Whoo hoo!
On Mother's Day, Sunday May 10th, the Skateboard Moms (and Aunties) will gather for a morning session (10 am to noon) at Vans Skatepark in Orange followed by an afternoon skate (2 pm to ?) at Etnies in Lake Forest. What better way to celebrate Mother's Day?
In June, the Skateboard Moms hit the road for a 10-day Mighty Mama Skate-O-Rama road trip, from Orange County to the Bay Area and back, June 19-28th. The itinerary at present has us stopping in OC, LA, Santa Barbara, Solvang, Los Osos, Santa Cruz, San Jose and San Francisco. We expect to see some amazing skating!
As always, we will be offering our Rockin' Raffle with proceeds benefiting children's literacy programs including our own Rolling4Reading program. We've had thousands of dollars worth of prizes donated over the years, and we are SO very appreciative to our amazing sponsors, past and present!
Want to know more about the history of Skateboard Moms, or our community service project, Rolling4Reading? Read all about it on the website of founder Barb Odanaka.
Below is a photo from our Rolling4Reading event for Rosie's Garage, a La Habra, Calif.-based afterschool program for kids in need. The kids are Rosie's are so wonderful, as is founder Rose Espinoza!
NOTE! If you're a woman who skates, please consider joining our new Skateboard Moms forum to get to know the other skate moms and "aunties" and find out where we're meeting next. Or contact Barb Odanaka at email@example.com.
