Squamish skate shop hosts fundraiser

comment

Although Squamish, the recreational capital of Canada, has a lot to offer its residents, there is one thing missing – a skatepark.

To raise money for a new park, Dedicated Skate and Snow in Squamish is hosting a pro skateboard demo on Saturday, April 26 at Don Ross Secondary School.

The demo will be free, and featuring the Satori Movement skate team of Karl Watson, Jake Rupp, Aaron Suski, Matt Pailes, Steve Olsen and Danny Fuenzalida. Amateurs from Squamish and the Lower Mainland will also be there.

Admission is free, but skaters are asked to bring a cash donation, and all proceeds from the barbecue will go towards the new park.

As promised by the event organizers, this will be the biggest skate event that Squamish has ever seen – and with enough donations, it won’t be the last.
