Skate for Katrina Relief on Oct. 29 in Reston

Skateboarders and in-line skaters can showcase their moves while raising funds for hurricane evacuees at Skate for Katrina Relief in Reston on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A skate park with ramps, quarter pipes, rails and kickers will be set up at the Wiehle Avenue Park and Ride Lot off the Dulles Toll Road. Music and skateboard demonstrations will add to the festive atmosphere at the free event.

“We often speak about providing constructive alternatives for youth,” said Hunter Mill District Supervisor Cathy Hudgins. “It is no secret that our youth have an interest in skateboarding and skating as an activity.”

Skate for Katrina Relief is sponsored by Hudgins in partnership with the Fairfax County Park Authority, Fairfax County Park Foundation, Reston Community Center, the Reston Association, America In-Line Skating and EnviroSolutions Inc.

Participants must be age 6 and up. Helmets are required for all ages. Additional safety equipment — wrist guards, elbow pads and kneepads — are required for participants under age 16. Identification with proof of age is necessary for an equipment waiver.
