This Christmas Eve was made special for 35 First Nation youth. It started out as a pilot project that took one year to complete. “It happened so fast that it made sense to give the skateboards on Christmas Eve and it couldn’t have been done without Christine Long who offered to be the driver for this special event!” Says Founder, Betty Esperanza.
