Here’s some more important information … since its inception, both Skate the Lake and Skate the Coast have attracted more than 1,000 participants who have fundraised over $75,000 in support of advocating an active lifestyle and raising awareness and funds for B4BC’s educational programs.
“Events like Skate the Lake and Skate the Coast are at the very heart of B4BC. Communities come together to have fun and honor loved ones, with a lot of love and laughter. It’s all a part of promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, against the beautiful backdrops of Lake Tahoe and the Pacific,” said Erika Seward, executive director, B4BC. “This year, we are thrilled to be able to support local breast cancers survivors with our Survivorship Fund.”
Skate the Lake will once again return to North Lake Tahoe where the event has taken place every year since 2004. The longboard-a-thon course runs along a 28-mile portion of North Lake Tahoe, beginning and ending at the Heritage Plaza in Tahoe City (590 North Lake Boulevard, Tahoe City, Calif.) from 7:30 a.m. to ~9 p.m. There will be a post party that will feature live music, food, drinks and more. On Sunday, August 19, the first ever Stand Up for Survivors will take place, inviting breast cancer survivors and the community to participate in standup paddleboard demos and wellness activities.
The registration party will be held on August 17th at Heritage Plaza from noon till sunset.
