Conscious Alliance will be sponsoring ONE Gathering – Skate for Life, a skateboarding competition created to unite the youth of the Denver community with the Native American youth of Colorado and surrounding states. It is a means of outreach to educate local communities of the social and health challenges Native American youth face today. The competition will take place at the Downtown Denver Skatepark on July 9th, 2011, located near the South Platte River – an historical gathering place for many Native American Tribes.
The overall goal for the ONE Gathering – Skate For Life is to promote inclusiveness and a positive impact on youth of all races by incorporating artistic achievement, social change, innovation, education, and healthy way of life outlooks. Skateboarding has many benefits: it builds self-confidence and self-esteem; encourages individuality and creativity; teaches social skills and respect for others; and brings communities together. It also promotes good health as it builds strength, balance and coordination as well as cardiovascular improvement. This is a drug and alcohol free event.
The ONE Gathering – Skate for Life is a program of Stronghold Society, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to instilling hope and supporting youth movements through Live Life Call To Action Campaigns.
