How to Participate
Have the time of your life and join the growing community of riders committed to the cause! Some of those who will be Skating the Coast will be dedicating their ride to a friend or loved one. Others just love to shred the love. Whatever your reason, it's guaranteed that your first time won't be your last. It's that awesome.
To participate, ALL RIDERS must FUNDRAISE a minimum of $50* (and fill out a waiver)!
Click the pink "Start Fundraising" button at www.give.classy.org/skatethecoast to create your online fundraising profile!
Just by asking 3 friends/family members to pledge $1/mile you are already past this goal. Or - you can pay the amount yourself but it's more fun to share your journey with others!! You’ll be surprised by how willing people are to help you shred the love.
