etnies Celebrates World Autism Awareness Day

April 7, 2011 2 comments

On April 2, World Autism Awareness Day, etnies, Autism Speaks and the A.skate Foundation held a day of free skate clinics for kids on the autism spectrum at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, Calif. With the help of more than 40 volunteers, including etnies team riders Jose Rojo, Kyle Leeper, Devine Calloway, Kyle Loza, Nathan Williams and Ashley Charles, 80 children with autism of all ages were provided with one-on-one skateboarding lessons, which serve as a unique social outlet for kids who often struggle with social interaction. Check out the etnies blog for more video and read coverage of the the event from Transworld Skateboarding and LakeForestPatch.

Here are some photos from the event!
