GRO Your World

Yesterday I mentioned the Swedish group No Limit and asked that you support them by becoming a memeber for just $20 – well today, I’d like to ask you to support the American group GRO (Girls Riders Organisation). They are a nonprofit group that launched in 2006 on their mission is to “inspire, educate and support girls in action sports”. Up until recently their focus has been very much upon on skateboarding and they have toured the country bringing nonexclusive events and opportunities to girls of all ages and abilities. By developing local GRO crews they have had a really positive impact on community involvement and have made skateboarding more accessible. The driving force behind GRO is Courtney Payne Taylor who has done a phenomenal job in organising and nurturing the programme – and she has recently expanded the remit into snowboarding and bmx. A great organisation, with all sorts of things in the 2011 pipeline so please donate a bit of money when you can. Thanks.
