That’s a tough question for us to answer… Snowboarding has changed the lives of so many of the awesome members of the OvR community in measures beyond measurements. Access from the city to the mountains has been the mission of OvRride since it’s incarnation. Without snowboarding there would be no OvR and without Jake Burton Carpenter, there would be no snowboarding. In the founding of the Chill program, Burton has helped bring that access, the shred community and all the stoke that comes along with it to the underserved youth of NYC, as well as all across the country.
In Jake’s memory and in thanks to all he’s given our community, we are re-dedicating our focus to help support the Chill program right here in our own backyard. It’s something that meant a lot to Jake and for good reason. We can empower so many of those who deserve better than the hand they’ve been dealt; youth from the tough neighborhoods right here in our own community. Help harness the power of positive energy and the special elevated community that snowboarding has given us. Come out to a Chillin’ on a Thirsty Thursday event, catch up with our snow loving family and help pay it forward to underserved youth in the Chill NYC program.
Through our series of events and fundraising efforts, we are targeting to raise enough to cover the entire cost of transportation for Chill NYC’s winter!
We’re going to be raffling off Burton gear, OvRride trips, and making plans to hit the mountains all winter long.
