A.skate Foundation is a national nonprofit organization that provides a positive and therapeutic environment for kids with Autism; a place where they can be a part of an incredible support group, while learning how to skateboard! A.skate holds their skate clinics at no cost to the families, give grants to the children for skateboarding gear, and also promote awareness and educate families about the skateboard industry.
This organization all started with Crys Worley and her son, Sasha, who has Autism. Sasha discovered an incredible therapeutic escape through skateboarding, which inspired Crys to create this amazing foundation. You can read more about their story HERE.
