Rauno and Julia are headed to Palestine to be part of a non-profit project that is run by SkatePal. The movement of SkatePal started in 2013 and ever since skateboarders from around the world meet up in Palestine to teach and empower local youngsters through a piece of wood called skateboard.
I heard about this project somewhere around end of January or early February. Julia came up to me at the skatepark and she was like, “dude, do u wanna go to Palesetine with me and teach skate..”. Before she finished the sentence I was already all in.
Time is passing quickly and on the 8th of April we are running a skateboarding competition in Tartu indoor skatepark to fundraise money for the project. Big supporters for the cause are Eesti Tänavaspordi Liit, House of Marsten (Vans Estonia), Tartu Skatehall & Tartu Rulakool.
How can you help?
Donations can also be made to Rulakool MTÜ bank account, details as follows:
