Skateboards For Hope is super stoked to announce that six young Ambassadors are competing in TOPGROM Event at Jackalope during the World Cup Skateboarding Competitions. All the activities will take place at the Olympic Stadium.

Aged between 5 and 12, these boys and girls represent Skateboards For Hope as passionate do-gooders who not only skateboard but are actively spreading messages of hope in their prospective communities. Most of the skaters are at their very first competiton and we can’t wait to see them enjoy this experience. Coby and Chloe are siblings…a little rivalry will boost their confidence. Emeric and Lily-Rose are sure to impress the crowd with their tricks- they are after all the same size as their decks. Rylie was our first Ambassador to raise awareness in his school last year, got featured in Lapresse and Journal de Montreal and continues to volunteer at events around the city. Liam is actually an amazing skateboarder TOPGROM and this will be his second JACKALOPE event.
