20th November – With summer approaching, we decided to hold a kick push race for a good cause and chose The Mo’vember Foundation. Choosing the charity was easy – 90% of our crew are male and we were proud to support them.
Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. The Mo’vember Foundation is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, and the Sunset Skate Sessions Crew wanted to help them get there. We wanted to help stop men dying too young.
Our kick push race was held along the Port Melbourne Blvd with the finish line being at the St.Kilda skatepark – a 6.4KM push and our champions are:
1st – Zander (14 mins 52 secs)
2nd – Ben (14 mins 54 secs)
3rd – Dan ( 15 mins 30 secs)
Our aim was $200 and with the generosity of our fellow crew, we managed to raise $220. There is still time to donate and here is the link to do so!
A huge shoutout to DB Longboards & Blacklight Distribution Australia for the prizes!
Yup! We will be doing more kick pushes for different charities in the coming months – Damn it feels good to give~
