The first time I went to a GRO event was in 2007. There was a mini-ramp to skate, a workshop, demos with some girl skaters who rip, some live bands, and just lots of supportive, rad fun. GRO now has an ATL chapter, and since I live over in Athens, I try to make the road trip to these events when I can. It's always fun. The best part is skating with girls standing their ground as the minority, girls who are having fun with skating despite it being a rough sport/art.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
building community! GRO brings us together. I have made friends with girls who skate, when I once had none.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About once a year
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
MY ROLE:Client Served & I have gone to about 4 GRO events total, and had fun skating at each one. Made new friends, skated new spots, and got the rad encouragement that comes from other girl skaters shredding.
