Final Connections

Connections I have in both of my communities facilitated this project and helped kids from all over the community to get exercise, gain increased access to opportunities, find healthy hobbies and become more involved in the community. Reaching out to surf shops and people in Florida and Costa Rica, I gathered donations for boards and materials.  From my current and former teachers, my family, my classmates and local businesses, I received enough money and materials to launch my project. BlockSkate Jax donated boards, bearings, wheels: enough to build 40 skateboards, giving me the opportunity to organize large events. I hosted a community workshop to teach kids how to build and assemble skateboards and how to skate.
