SkateMD is a Northern California based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with
a mission to heal hearts by spreading kindness and skateboarding to special populations of
children facing developmental, physical, emotional or family challenges.
SkateMD serves special populations of children who may not otherwise be able to pursue skateboarding, who may not have easy access to skateboard equipment or facilities, and/or who just need some extra kindness in their lives. Depending on the clinic, we may prioritize children with special needs, foster youth, or other at-risk children in the community.
*Currently only accepting donations from within California.
Clinic #26 was a success! Check out this photo slideshow by volunteer photographer, Cebolla Mendez, to see all of the smiles and joy from both participants and volunteers. Thank you to the County of El Dorado and Hangtown Skate Shop for hosting us. And Hangtown Skate Shop, thanks for donating the morning coffee and grub for the entire crew! Many thanks also to the 60+ volunteers who donated their time and heart for the day. It "takes a village" and SkateMD has a pretty great one. Until Next Kind!
SkateMD's annual fundraiser and 3rd anniversary party was a success. We grossed over $8000 and celebrated with a large room full of SkateMD families, volunteers, supporters, and community partners!
HUGE HIGH FIVES and MANY, MANY BOARDTAPS to our event support, beer and wine donors, art and raffle donors, friends, and family! You are the magic that makes it all possible for these kiddos.

"This is our first time attending and all I can say is I was amazed at all the wonderful kind hearted volunteers and parents that are part of the event." - Rebecca Lopez, mother of Jadon.
"Start to finish [was my favorite part]. My face hurts from smiling. This experience is one of the ONLY times that I felt my 8 year old kid fit in, was safe and supported, and I could step back watch the awesome. Thank you!" -Mary Hoberg, mother of Elsa.
