Johnny Romano Skate Jam: Skateboarding’s Largest Non-Profit Fundraising Event

This past Saturday concluded the 15th annual Johnny Romano Skate Jam at Southside Skatepark in Houston. This event is skateboarding’s largest non-profit fundraising event and has raised over $650,000 over the years for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The event is the brainchild of Houston native and skateboarder Damien Hebert. “In 14 years we have raised over $650,000 for Make-A-Wish thus directly effecting about 130 kids in making their wishes come true!” Herbert explains. “The great thing about Make-A-Wish is year after year this chapter puts over 93% to 95% of the money raised directly into the wishes for these wonderful children.”

Pros and ams came out on Sunday to participate in best trick contests, skate with the kids, and hang out. All winnings were donated to charity. It’s always great to see skateboarding give back.

Highlights from the day can be seen here.
