For the 4th straight year, the Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF) awarded skate scholarships to deserving NYC youth.
Doubling the number of scholarships that were awarded last summer, this week 16 local skaters headed to Camp Woodward including Andre Beverly, Kadeem Brown, Melquan Chisolm, Eamon Doster-Schellenbaum, Joel Green, Talik Harden, Brian Ibarguen, Mory Kamara, Jhoao Lopez, Steven Lora, Enrique Martinez, Sebastian Pena-Campodonico, Val Perre, Michael Rivas, Anthony Rodriguez and Khyle Williams.
The scholarships were generously donated by Camp Woodward and Red Bull, with extra expenses covered by money raised throughout the year at various HHF events. In addition, complimentary gear to outfit each camper was provided by DVS, Triple Eight, Zoo York, CCS, SHUT, Spitfire and Thunder. Campers also received special edition HHF decks designed by Eli Gesner.
Special thanks goes out to the following HHF friends for their support in helping pull it all together: Billy Rohan from Open Road, Michael Cohen, and Brian Deka Paupaw from the Hoods to Woods Foundation.
