HH DAY VII SET FOR OCTOBER 12 IN NYC

The Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF), in association with primary sponsors Airwalk, Skullcandy, Zoo York, Monster Energy, and Supreme, is proud to announce the 7th Annual Harold Hunter Day will go down Saturday, October 12th, from 1:00-5:00pm at NYC’s Coleman Oval/L.E.S. Skatepark under the Manhattan Bridge.

Established in 2006 after Harold’s untimely passing, and managed by the non-profit Harold Hunter Foundation, Harold Hunter Day VII will once again unite NYC’s tight-knit skate community for a positive, fun-filled day of skateboarding in memory of Harold. The event celebrates what Harold cherished most: skateboarding, music, friends, family, and of course, New York City.

Hosted by Jefferson Pang and Dave Ortiz, with live music provided by DJ Smoke L.E.S., Harold Hunter Day VII will feature an all-ages skate jam with appearances by pro skateboarders, pop-up Best Trick contests, and massive product giveaways.

As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Harold Hunter Foundation relies on support from the skate community and related outlets to achieve its mission of using skateboarding as a vehicle to provide inner-city youth with valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness and the development of life skills.

In this spirit, one of the HHF’s major initiatives each year is its Skate Camp Scholarship. Since the organization’s inception, close to 100 scholarships have been awarded to deserving local skaters to attend Camp Woodward and/or the Element YMCA Skate Camp through funds raised by the HHF.

With fundraising in mind, this fall the Harold Hunter Foundation will proudly release three limited edition collaborations with Airwalk, Skullcandy and Zoo York. Proceeds from all three collabs will benefit the HHF to help further its youth-focused programs.

The Hunter Collection by Airwalk features a skate shoe and t-shirt capsule that pays homage to Harold. The low profile, vulcanized sneaker retails for $50.00, and the t-shirt for $19.99. Both co-branded items are exclusively available at Airwalk.com, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the HHF.

Harold was a huge music fan, so collaborating with Skullcandy was a natural fit. The HHF x Skullcandy Aviator headphone is emblazoned with an iconic portrait of Harold that was photographed by Giovanni Reda. Featuring industry-leading Supreme Sound technology and a sophisticated aesthetic, only 100 pairs of the hand-numbered and assembled headphones will be available beginning October 12th at Skullcandy.com, TheBerrics.com, and the SHUT store on NYC’s Lower East Side. All proceeds will benefit the HHF.

Harold was one of the OG members of the Zoo Crew. It was his legendary antics and larger-than-life personality that helped put the NYC skate scene on the map years ago. Zoo York is celebrating the extraordinary history of East Coast skateboarding with its new Zoo York Kings collection. To launch the premium apparel and hardgoods offering, and celebrate the life and times of Harold, Zoo York has teamed up with the Harold Hunter Foundation to release a limited edition deck and t-shirt. The collaborative kit will only be available at select skate shops, with a portion of proceeds benefiting the HHF.

Harold Hunter Day VII is made possible through generous support from the aforementioned primary sponsors as well as 5boro, SHUT, TORRO!, Rock Star Bearings, Trophy Grip, New Breed, UXA, Shake Shack, The Professionals: NYC Sound Company, and the collective NYC skateboarding community.
