"The Sheckler Foundation is about empowering people to be the change in their communities. Hitting the milestone of donating $1,000,000 demonstrates that we are making a difference. Thanks to everyone that has supported our events and projects," said Ryan Sheckler.
The Sheckler Foundation's 7th Annual Ryan Sheckler NBC Sports Celebrity Golf Tournament is coming up on Monday, September 29. This annual event is a key fundraiser for the Sheckler Foundation, and more than $200,000 was raised at last year's tournament.
Since starting in 2008, the Sheckler Foundation has been paying it forward to help numerous individuals and causes. "Be the Change" is the Sheckler Foundation's program that focuses on enriching the lives of children and injured action sports athletes, through its online social initiative. The past three "Be the Change" winners include: The Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe, Peach's Neet Feet and the Ashley Wade Foundation.
