On August 15, 2015, Lake Tahoe Mermaid Brigitte Marie will skate 28 miles straight on her beloved longboard.
Sure, she'd probably do it just for kicks, and she'd probably do it with some Converse & WiseFool steez to boot, but on this particular occasion she'll be getting wisely foolish with an added purpose.
This year marks the 11th Annual Boarding for Breast Cancer Skate the Lake event in Lake Tahoe, California. The weekend kicks off Friday the 14th with a pre-party including live music, food, drinks, a silent auction, and more, then culminates in the main event Saturday morning during which participants will kick and push their way to completing more than a marathon. For more on Brigitte's role, and how you can help support this rad event, keep reading below.
Brigitte has started a fundraising page, which you can access here, in support of B4BC (Boarding For Breast Cancer) in order to raise $500 towards the organization's ultimate goal of $25,000 for the event.
Alongside such superrad sponsors as Hurley, GoPro, and Sector9, baby brand WiseFool's contribution comes in the form of a humble $20.15 pledge (born in year 2015). By spreading the good word, though, we hope to combine forces with our WiseFool Famiglia in order to make a much larger impact. That's what WiseFool is all about, after all. From the WiseFool mission statement found under "The Family" page:
"With your help, the spokes of our combined influence will continue to extend and sew the seeds of positive vibes far and wide. Here's to our mission, and to the road ahead. Get wise. Stay foolish. Enjoy the ride."
Here's to Brigitte, here's to hoping she enjoys the ride, and here's to all those who come together to contribute to such rad events as this.
