Grind For Life



Grind For Life Inc. was founded in 2003 by life long skateboarder Mike Rogers after his second battle with sarcoma cancer. C&S skateshop in Allen (owned by Mike Crum) picks a charity every year to benefit and this year they picked Grind for Life.

The mission of the Grind For Life organization is to provide financial assistance to cancer patients and their families when traveling long distances to doctors and hospitals. In addition, we educate and inspire these patients and families concerning cancer survival and recovery. Those who qualify may request assistance for travel and lodging expenses, meal, and personal needs. Funds for this organization will be raised by, but not limited to, hosting skateboarding events and festivals, ebay sales of donated goods, fundraiser's, Grind For life sponsors a skateboard team to perform at these events to keep the spirit of skateboarding alive.

YO YO YO... SPECIAL CB BONUS VIDEOS!!! I GOT SO HYPE ABOUT THE LINE UP FOR THIS THING I HAD TO JUST GO AHEAD AND WASTE MY LITTLE 2 HOURS YOUTUBING OLD SKATE VIDEOS.... GOT 2 THINGS FOR YOU...

1. Pat Duffy - Plan B's "Questionable Video". ... This dude moved the sport forward like 4 years with this one little 3 min section. Say what you want about this dude, but EVERYBODY had to check to make sure their fucking heads were still attached after watching THIS shit. For the time (i think 93??? check me on this..) this shit was just plain unheard of. Even today that last double kink ranks high, and the skating in the rain?!?! Fuck off. Welcome to new school.


2. Kareem Campbell - 20 Shot Sequence. ... This was really the first time I saw video of Kareem. Watching this should also explain any hip hop/skating correlation questions you may have. This shit is CLASSIC. Before this guy, the hood had to ride for Ray Barbee, which was a little to punk rock for some blocks.... Video has Keenan Milton, Ron Creager, Lavar McBride, Jason Dill, etc. SICK SHIT. Ask somebody.


Both of these dudes are gonna be in the spot on Sat... If you don't support this, you're a straight loser.
