Life Rolls On: They Will Skate Again

Skating the Venice skatepark "clamshells" with a little help from Aaron Fotheringham
Life Rolls On held their annual They Will Skate Again event on Saturday at the Venice Skatepark. This is a free event where individuals with varied levels of mobility can learn to shred the park. It's a full day of activities, there is a pro skate exhibition that basically runs throughout the day, where wheelchair and assisted skateboarding athletes are showing what is possible by throwing down tricks, grinds, and carves on all parts of the skatepark. While that is happening, there are adaptive skate clinics being held, where Top wheelchair-motocross athletes, like Aaron "Wheelz" Fotheringham, are on hand to coach how to safely ride the skatepark. Life Rolls On had all the proper equipment and safety gear available for participants who needed it.


Following the free lunch provided by Chipotle, there was an Adaptive Skate Contest. With contestants from all over the country competing, the crowd got to witness some awesome runs.

As the contest wrapped, and the awards were about to be given out, an epic Wheelchair MotoCross Rail Jam started. More on that here.
