Good morning readers – in addition to sharing to family fun events, we have an update on ticket prices for Rock To Read. Plus skateboarding for those confined to wheelchairs — its a mind boggling event. Acworth is holding their Halloween Festivities.
THEY WILL SKATE AGAIN
Saturday October 23, 9:00 am to 2:30 pm.
We are inviting hundreds of volunteers, people of all ages with disabilities, and entire families come together for an epic day at the Kennesaw Skate Park, in Swift Cantrell Park, Kennesaw on Saturday October 23. The City of Kennesaw is partnering with the Life Rolls On Foundation (LRO), Atlanta Chapter, to host an Inclusive Wheelchair Motocross Clinic for athletes of all abilities and ages. The event will be held at Kennesaw Skate Park in Swift-Cantrell Park,.
Founded in 2001, by world champion quadriplegic surfer Jesse Billauer, LRO Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injury and beyond. Believing that adaptive surfing and skating could inspire infinite possibilities beyond paralysis, Life Rolls On now touches the lives of hundreds of thousands. Bring a helmet, knee and elbow pads, and of course, their fastest wheels. Breakfast snacks and lunch will be served for registered athletes and volunteers and water will be available. While this is a free event, athletes and volunteers are required to register at:
