Dime Glory Challenge at Vans Skatepark
September 17, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Vans invite young skateboard enthusiasts and those interested in discovering the sport to a skateboarding intro session. As part of the Dime Glory Challenge, an event in which Vans is a partner, internationally renowned athletes will be at the Vans skateparkto introduce youth to the sport and coach them.
The activity will be divided in two parts. From 10 am to 11 am, Vans will welcome a group of young people from the JM Court and Tyndale St-Georges community organizations so that they can discover skateboarding. From 11 am to 12 pm, the event will be open to all. Even youth without their equipment can enjoy the experience since Vans will provide some boards, helmets, and protective gear.
Vans athletes, including local talent Annie Guglia will be on-site to meet the skaters and advise them.
Volunteers from the P45 Project, a park that volunteer skateboarders have designed, will hold a BBQ on site from 11.00 to 12.30, offering hot dogs and refreshments.
Starting at 2 pm, a giant screen will be set up in the Vans skatepark so those without tickets for the Dime Glory Challenge can watch the event for free.
This year, profits from ticket sales will be donated to the The Dillon Ojo Lifeline Foundation. Created to honor the memory of the skateboarder Dillon Charles-Ojo who passed away in 2018, the organization works hard to help youth access sports and the arts through various activities.
In case of rain, the activity will be postponed to Sunday September 18 at the same times and Dime Glory Challenge also from 2 pm – 6 pm.
