Emerica's Wild in the Streets gathers skateboarders of every age, color and creed to converge on city streets around the world in the celebration of pure skateboarding. On Tuesday, June 21, 2011, join the entire Emerica team and over 10,000 skateboarders from around the globe for Emerica’s Wild in the Streets in Los Angeles, CA.
For Wild in the Streets 2011, Emerica has partnered with Boards For Bros, a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting and refurbishing skateboards so they can be redistributed back into communities where children cannot afford their own. “Like Emerica, Boards for Bros seeks to empower youth through skateboarding. Emerica chose to partner with Boards For Bros for Wild In The Streets Los Angeles as a way to kick-start skateboarding for youth in the local communities” says Jeff Henderson, Emerica Marketing Manager.
Emerica is asking skateboarders across the United States to help gather used boards, trucks and wheels for Boards for Bros. Over 75 Emerica retailers across the country will have Boards for Bros boxes in their stores where you can donate your used skateboard products. As a thank you for being awesome, these selected retailers are giving you 10% off all Emerica shoes and gear on the day you donate your used skateboard products.
