The city of Kennesaw will team up with a nonprofit organization to host an adaptive skateboarding clinic for athletes of all ages and abilities.
The Inclusive Wheelchair Motorcross Clinic hosted by the city and Life Rolls On Foundation’s Atlanta Chapter will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at Swift-Cantrell Park.
This third-annual event, referred to as ‘They Will Skate Again,’ will feature clinics for beginner to advanced athletes on curb, stairs, rail, slalom course and bowl drop skills, the city said. While the event is free, athletes and volunteers must register online.
Life Rolls On was founded in 2001 by quadriplegic surfer Jesse Billauer and promotes a better quality of life for people impacted by spinal cord injuries.
“We are excited to partner with Life Rolls On to provide the life-changing and skills-enhancing They Will Skate Again event to the Kennesaw community and beyond,” said Steven Roberts, Kennesaw Parks & Recreation director. “This is a great event to showcase Kennesaw’s inclusive Skatepark.”
Swift-Cantrell Park is located at 3140 Old Highway 41 NW in Kennesaw. For more information, visit kennesaw-ga.gov or call the Kennesaw Parks & Recreation Department at (770) 422-9714.
