Life Rolls On: They Will Skate Again

After hosting They Will Surf Again in Santa Monica last month, Life Rolls On's Get On Board 2017 Tour continues with another local event, They Will Skate Again.

Held in the Venice Skatepark, this is another free event, but instead of getting waves, this is a skate clinic for people of all ages with disabilities who want to ride the skatepark in their wheelchairs. From first timers to seasoned pro wheelchair athletes, this was an all day skate clinic with a Grom Contest.

More than a day of recreational activity, They Will Skate Again also serves as an exceptional opportunity for individuals with SCI and their families to network and establish new support networks outside traditional group support settings. Founded by world champion quadriplegic surfer Jesse Billauer, Life Rolls On is dedicated to improving the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injury. Believing that adaptive surfing and skating could inspire infinite possibilities beyond paralysis.
