COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT // Jason Knight
Jason is a longtime supporter of B4BC’s Skate the Lake and Skate the Coast series (coming up THIS weekend!), and has always
managed to be one of our top fundraisers every year…with a kid on the nose of his board for 28 miles to boot! This year alone he raised over $2,000 for Boarding for Breast Cancer’s education and prevention programs. This is how he does it, and why the cause is so important to him and his family…get inspired, and get fundraising for Skate the Coast this weekend!! www.bit.ly/b4bcjason
