Los Angeles, Calif. (May 28, 2015) – B4BC (Boarding for Breast Cancer) is proud to announce Leticia Bufoni as the newest team rider to the B4BC family.
“Working with B4BC to inspire and motivate girls to live a healthy, active lifestyle is really important to me,” said Bufoni. “I’m really excited to be officially joining the team alongside some of the most amazing female athletes of my generation!”
The 22 year-old Bufoni is a seven- time X Games medalist, and the only female athlete to win three X Games Gold Medals in the same year (2013). She has been ranked the number one women’s street skateboarder by World Cup Skate four years in a row (2010-13) and is the former Female Skater of the Year (Cemporcento Skate – Brazil).

She is also aligned with longtime B4BC partners and supporters GoPro, Oakley and Nixon.
“Leticia is so incredibly talented and has much to offer the global community as an athlete and role model,” said Erika Seward, executive director, B4BC. “We are thrilled to welcome Leticia to the team and look forward to making a greater impact, together.”
