Skatepark of Tampa | Boards for Bros Delivery Day 2015

Stoked to be part of such a great cause this Holiday season.

The 2015 Boards for Bros Annual Holiday Distribution was a huge success. Santa and his helpers killed it all day handing out skateboards, giving lessons and showing the new skaters what it means to hang with friends and have fun. Over 175 skateboards were handed over to their new stoked owners and even a few scooters were ditched in the process! It was an amazing end to an epic year that had us distribute 525 skateboards to kids in Tampa and beyond. Endless thanks to all of our donors and volunteers who have made this possible. 2016 is going to be bigger and better than ever (we already have over 35 kids on our distribution waiting list) so let’s keep growing this and change even more lives, one skateboard at a time.
