Skate For The Cure!


The Bellevue Skate Park will celebrate its 20th anniversary September 19-21 with a pro-am skateboarding competition featuring the Northwest’s first super ramp and 10 of the best riders in the world.

The competitors will skate for $50,000 in prize money at the EZ Rocks Skate for the Cure event.  The celebration, at the skate park (14224 Bel-Red Road), will also feature live music, including performances from the Thermals and School of Rock, free skate and disc jockey clinics, food trucks, carnival games, a silent auction and prize giveaways from over 30 sponsors. Highlights will include:
•        The largest skating ramp (250-foot long/40-feet high) ever assembled in the state;
•        Top-ranked Mega Ramp riders in the world, including Mitchie Brusco, PLG, Jake Brown, Jono Schwan, Trey Wood, Jaeger Eaton and Sky Siljeg; 
•        The first ever highest air and best lip trick contest on a super ramp;
•        Five Division Street contests for all ages and abilities with a $7,500 purse; and
•        A girls-only skate competition for a $2,500 purse!

The event will benefit the Zakes Foundation, created by Brad and Nancy Zakes in memory of their son, Ethan, a skateboarder who lost his life in 2011 to adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) at the age of 10.  The Zakes Foundation is a non-profit, charitable corporation established for the purpose of funding newborn screening programs for rare childhood diseases and providing academic scholarships for at-need-youth. 

The event will also celebrate the Bellevue Skate Park's 20-year anniversary. Built in 1994 as a project of Bellevue Youth Link, the facility was the first of four skate parks built in Bellevue.

The celebration event is open to spectators and participants of all ages.  Tickets are $10-$15.  For more information, visit www.ezrocks.org
