etnies & Autism Speaks for World Autism Awareness Day

Apr 5 2011 / Tuesday

Save the .mov (112.27 MB)

Last Saturday was World Autism Awareness Day and the perfect opportunity for etnies, Autism Speaks and the A.skate Foundation to have a full day of free skate clinics for kids on the autism spectrum. With the help of more than 40 volunteers, including etnies team riders Jose Rojo, Kyle Leeper, Devine Calloway, Kyle Loza, Nathan Williams and Ashley Charles, 80 children of all ages made it out to the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest for one-on-one skateboarding lessons. Whether knowingly or not, we've all found skateboarding to be a unique social outlet and to share that, especially with kids who often struggle with social interaction, is something you can't help but smile at. Seriously, watch the video and when it's done, check your face... You'll be smiling.

  4. Thank you all soo much for allowing my boys to be a part of an amazingly awesome experience. It's hard to express how difficult it is to bring happiness to an autistic child. Most times you have to find a skate park that's empty and quiet otherwise they get frustrated or ran over. My boys haven't stopped wearing their shirts and showing off their decks...MUCH LOVE.
