As you know, Skate4Cancer is in the middle of planning our huge North American school tour for the fall of 2011! We are so excited to come and visit you all, and just wanted to give you a breakdown of what we have in mind for our visits.
The event will begin with an introductory screening of the short documentary “Dream-Love-Cure”, which covers the growth of Skate4Cancer from its inception to current state. This will familiarize the audience with Rob’s history, our organization and the direction we are moving in.
Rob will then deliver a motivational talk, elaborating on how to transform a negative experience into something constructive. He will highlight the importance of following your passions in life and remaining focused despite any hurdles, illuminating his points with specific references to his unique experiences and adventures. In addition to these inspiring topics, Rob will address his own passion – cancer prevention.
Through this evening, we aspire to leave these towns and communities feeling compelled to rally together and build on their own special energy. We want to inspire the development of local S4C chapters, with the shared goal of raising hope and providing support.
In addition to the film and speech, the tour will also be accompanied by live music performances, a tool that has always amplified the message of our tours in the past. Musicians have always helped us by putting their music toward the cause, communicating the message through song. Over the past three years several up-and-coming artists have been involved in our tours and other events, including City and Colour, SHAD, Lights and The Wooden Sky.
