History is in the making at Next Up Foundation. We experience major accomplishments on the regular, but this summer, as the program hits its eighth anniversary, we are proud to announce a dream-come-true. Thanks to the support of Dickies Skateboarding, we’re having the opportunity to send two well-deserving Next Up participants to world-renowned skate camp Woodward West. Chosen based on outstanding commitment to academics as well a strong representation of the Next Up mission, Andrew Mendez and Brandyt Hernandez will be the first Next Up participants to attend Woodward. Thank you to Professional skateboarder Vincent Alvarez, who paid a visit to Next Up Headquarters to make the big reveal. Andrew and Brandyt accepted their awards with humble excitement, both exclaiming how grateful they are to all who made this opportunity possible. We had to fight back tears while witnessing the result of a year’s worth of hard work and dedication. Thank you to all who have been involved in our mission to support Anaheim youth!! So much LOVE from the NEXT UP Crew!!!
