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.
The SkateMD Birthday and Benefit at Goldfield Trading Post was a major success! Thank you to everyone who volunteered, donated, attended, celebrated, smiled, and had fun! Thank you especially to Ryan Carpenter who designed our amazing flyer and to the talented artists who shared their craft and pieces to our out-of-this-world raffle.
Two years of skateboarding and kindness has flown by and we could not be happier about our success - which gave us reason to celebrate! Thank you for the skate community, SkateMD families, Sacramento business community, and our entire SkateMD village for your continued support!
The next clinic for children with special needs

"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.
