The A.skate Foundation is a 501(c)3 non profit that allows children with autism to be a part of our social world through skateboarding.
Here are a few of the things that we do:
Give free skateboard lessons to children on the spectrum, hold clinics nationwide for children with autism at no cost to the families, give "Grants for Gear" for kids to purchase skateboard gear, hold fundraisers and events to promote our cause.
Autism, like skateboarding, can be unpredictable and often times unruly. We embrace the parts of autism that are hard to understand and give these kids an outlet that is free of rules or judgment, and allows them to be social without being “social”.
