SMB are delighted to announce that we're sponsoring Keith O'Leary in the upcoming Skaiti event. Keith is skating to raise money for disaster relief in Haiti. He is very ambitiously planning to skate for a minimum of 150 miles or for around 20 hours - either way it is a MASSIVE challenge & we wish him every success.
"We're going to be skating around the clock! 250 Longboarders, skateboarders, inliners, and rollerskaters will be coming together to skate at SKAITI - a 24 hour event being hosted at Dunsfold Park in Surrey... on the famous test track featured on the BBC's TOP GEAR. SKAITI’S aim is to raise as much money as possible to help with the disaster relief efforts following the earthquake in Haiti. We're going to push off at NOON on SATURDAY the 10th of APRIL and we'll be coasting to the finish at noon the following day.
SKATERS of all kinds will be there: young, old, families, longboarders, street skaters, slalomers, inliners, rollerbladers, rollerskaters... all sorts! Help us make this a huge fundraising success, by offering us your support.
ALL SPONSORSHIP MONEY will be donated to SHELTERBOX. Shelterbox is an international disaster relief charity that provides emergency shelter to those affected by disaster worldwide. You can find out more about Shelterbox and its work in Haiti at http://www.shelterbox.org/
