  4. Awesome!! It's so great to see Autism becoming so much more widely supported. I have 2 boys on the spectrum. A 3 year old with Autism and an 11 year old with Asperger's. Thank you so very much! My 11 year old will be thrilled to hear about this since has loved skating since he was 3.

  5. My 5 yr old son Luke has autism. I never thought he would enjoy something like skateboarding. Then we did the previous ASkate event at Etnies and he absolutely loved it. I love watching all the videos on YouTube of him. Thank you so much for putting these events together!
    We would really love to attend this event as well. Do you know where we can go to sign up?
    Thank you again
