TAC-We grinded some major hunger, got real, and went big…

Super pumped after today’s 1st Annual Grind Out Hunger Skate-A-thon. We had a blast! The rain came, and went…then, it came again, we were shuffling those ramps around like we were playing musical chairs, it got weird. But, never fret, the sun came a shining, and the ground dried up. Thanks to all the groms who stayed strong and hung out, we had a great set of ramps….Great sponsors, great event.

This hippy grom was really killing it all day, i was a bit weary obviously, i mean he was wearing a tie die shirt…haha.Tac Apparel Company - Grind Out Hunger, Second Harvest Food Bank 1st Annual Skate-A-thon
