The second annual "They Will Skate Again Atlanta" event happens Saturday, April 28 at Kennesaw Skate Park. The gathering is presented by Life Rolls On which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injury. 

As part of the 2018 Get on Board Tour, “They Will Skate Again Atlanta” invites adaptive athletes and their families to come enjoy an epic day at the skate park.

“One thing we are heavy into is inclusion,” says Clint Cook – one of the organizers for the largest east coast skating event put on by the nonprofit organization. “It is amazing to see how the professionals maneuver their wheelchairs around the skate park but what is even more amazing is seeing a kid out there in a wheelchair and for the first time doing something with their friends...the smiles on their faces is priceless.”

The skating event is free for all and begins with registration at 9 am!
