"Cops and concrete: the two realities in street skating don't distinguish between male and female. Skateboarders go to spots knowing they run the risk of being harassed by authorities and brutalized by the terrain if they don't stick their landings. But for the most part, that's where the parity ends. Thousands of kids dream of getting sponsored and receiving that coveted box of product in the mail, but chances are slim that they'll have the talent or the footage to get noticed. Chances are even slimmer if you're a girl." - Robin Fleming, espn.com

B4BC (Boarding for Breast Cancer) is thrilled to announce their elite roster of pro team riders. In addition to capturing news headlines for achievements in competition and film, these women have demonstrated a commitment to B4BC’s mission of promoting a healthy, active lifestyle as the best means for breast cancer prevention.

 

Members of B4BC’s Pro Athlete Roster include:

· Surf – Courtney Conlogue, Liz Clark, Sage Erickson and Malia Manuel
· Skate – Mimi Knoop and Allysha Bergado
· Snow – Elena Hight, Kimmy Fasani and Hana Beaman
· Wake – Tarah Mikacich

 

“We are so honored to have such wonderful athletes and role models representing B4BC,” said Erika Seward, executive director, B4BC. “These beautiful ladies embody the B4BC spirit of being your own advocate, following your passions, and living in a healthy, responsible way. Together, we look forward to collaborating on current and future projects that inspire and support young women, girls and those personally affected by breast cancer.”

 

Many of B4BC’s team riders gathered together last week at Leo Carrillo State Park in Malibu, Calif. to celebrate their involvement and participate in B4BC’s Be Healthy. Get Active. Ride! campaign shoot. The campaign, which features Conlogue, Erickson, Knoop, Bergado, Hight and Beaman, will launch this Fall as part of B4BC’s Breast Cancer Prevention Month efforts. Havoc TV was on-site to capture the day and offers an exclusive look here.

 

The B4BC Outreach Experience hits the road this summer to educate young people about breast health and prevention with B4BC team riders scheduled to appear. Dates will include the X Games Los Angeles 2012 (June 28-July 1), Warped Tour (June – August), the US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach (July 28-Aug. 5) and more.

"Allysha Bergado is only 15 and she’s done more in her seven years skating, than most people do in their lifetimes. She’s competed in the X Games and the Dew Tour, and even educates young women on health issues. This bowl-shredder has the talent, focus and personality to make an impact on girls and boys around the globe. As if that isn’t enough she does amazing in school and somehow manages to have a life by balancing her academics, skateboarding and travels. Allysha talks about a range of topics from what she does for fun to how she’s adjusting to contests altogether eliminating the girls sections." - Poweredge
