B4BC's Skate The Coast

Now in it's 8th year, Skate The Coast is 18-mile skateboarding marathon held by Boarding For Breast Cancer to raise money for breast cancer awareness, prevention, and support programs. Participants skate, bike, or rollerskate along the 18-mile course starting at the Santa Monica Pier, and taking the bike path along the beach, passing through such areas as Venice Beach, Marina Del Rey, Manhattan Beach, till they reach the Redondo Beach Pier, where there was an after party at Wahoo's Fish Tacos. Each participant needed to raise at least a minimum of $50 in order to take part, and with so many of these awesome guys and girls each raising way beyond that, the total amount raised ended up to be well over their goal of $25,000.

Welcome and safety meeting before the skate.
