I met Cortney ,the founder of Gro, when it was just an idea with a passion. The number of girls that have joined the group since is increasable. As a 49 year old "girl" I know the empowerment that comes with skating or snowboarding. I'm a cancer survivor that has gained back my strength with the help of my ladies on boards who have cheered me on through out it all. I'm always stoked when my son Sky (World Cup Pro Skater) and I travel to skate events and I get to meet other girls who ride and can encourage them as I have been encouraged. The number of girls entering the contests I host has grown huge and the girl specific companies sponsoring my events has doubled in recent years. I'm excited about the future of GRO and all the amazing girls riding!
