Skateboarders raise money, food and clothing for those in need in Maple Ridge

Shred, Share, Stoked took place at the Greg Moore Youth Centre in Maple Ridge on Sunday

Skateboarders from around the Lower Mainland gathered at the Greg Moore Youth Centre in Maple Ridge on Sunday to raise money, food and clothing for those in need.

The 9th annual Shred, Share, Stoked event raised $150, two big boxes of non-perishable food items and six garbage bags of lightly used clothing for the Friends In Need Food Bank and Cythera Transition House Society in Maple Ridge.

Around 100 people attended the event, including 40 skateboarders, volunteers, community and family members.

Nine children competed in the 12 and under age category. First place went to Dave McGough, 12, who won a new skateboard. Second place to Devon Hearts, 11, who won new trucks for his skateboard. Third place went to Lochlan Hunt, 9, who won new wheels.

All the other participants in the category received prize bags with stickers and skateboard wax.

The advanced category competition was run as a “Best Trick” style event, with one obstacle chosen at a time.

“A sort of organized chaos, this way there’s less pressure of a normal contest and is much more fun,” said chief organizer Jesse Holland.

Prizes were handed out to anyone who could land tricks, but the main winners were Evan Tancredi, 15, Jericho Ripplinger, 17, Dylan Glowa, 14, and Ashton Koop, 14.
