For the past two years I have been coordinating a rail jam in Indiana, PA (about an hour from 7 Springs if that makes more sense) where all profit made during the competition went to our local Humane Society chapter as well as collected items such as cleaning supplies and pet food. Since our first competition our event keeps growing each year setting the bar even higher for ourselves. From the first competition I have brought on three partners as well as our schools Ski & Snowboard club to help coordinate the logistics of this year’s event. I really can’t stress the amount of work and time we have invested in this.
This year’s competition has progressed to the point where we have gotten permission (after a ton of meetings) to shut down an entire block of our down town area for this year’s competition. A long with helping out and collecting donations for Indiana’s Humane Society we are also attempting to save our local skate park for one more year of operation. The foundation that allocates funds to our local skate park decided that $1,500 isn’t worth spending on our youth and plan on closing the park due to rising costs of up keep.
I would really appreciate the time of the kids on Newschoolers to take a look at our page, come shred, support an awesome cause(s),invite some friends, and get some awesome buzz going about our comp December 1st !
