    I love that this equalizes and connects the teens with so many people of choice and healthy fun causes that build with freedom, mobility, fun, and self-esteem. I would like to see reports on where the boards take them (geo/phys and professional plans).

    I grew up skating in NYC and though I was an upper middle class kid then, I still skate now at age 50, and I see kids in Central Park from all walks--usually longboarding--and down at the Chelsea skate park as well. Skating is a great equalizer and doesn't take a lot of equipment. Only municipal support to provide areas or allowances to skate.

    Thanks so much for sharing this. I recently read the piece "Legends Never Die" http://narrative.ly/keep-calm-and-carry-on/legends-never-die/ which brought back so many memories, and I was moved by what you were doing to carry on Harold's legacy. He was such an amazing individual, so its great to see the foundation helping the next generation of kids like him.

    Reaching your dreams, every one has the right to achieve this. And if this can encourage people, make them stronger aware from themselves then this is good.
