On September 21st Next Up Foundation of Anaheim, Santa Ana and Long Beach had a wonderful opportunity and privilege to meet at the world renowned The Berrics Skatepark in Los Angeles. The Berrics Skatepark in partnership with Levi’s organized a skate day party for the Next Up Foundation members. There were eleven members from Santa Ana, fourteen members from Long Beach and thirty members from our pilot program in Anaheim. Each child had the privilege to skate with professional skateboarders: Felipe Gustavo, Leticia Bufoni, Braulio Sagas, Milton Martinez, Andre Genovesi and Felix Arguelles. It was a day filled with very excited Next Up members learning new tricks from the professionals, enjoying lunch and just having a lot of fun while engaging in this once in a life time experience. I would like to personally thank The Berrics and Levi’s for bringing such pleasure to all of the young members of the Next Up Foundation and for simply just making this happen!! – Vinicius Tinoco founder of Next Up Foundation.
