SkaterAid

Skateboarders invaded Decatur for a good cause on Sunday, Hundreds of boarders participated in the 2012 SkaterAid event. Originally started as a fundraiser for a local skateboarder’s family after he was diagnosed with cancer, the money raised now goes to the  Brain Tumor Foundation for Children’s Butterfly Fund. I photographed the event for a Three of a Kind photo feature for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
