Humans are aplenty. So much so, that some nationalist leaders are establishing policies to bar them outside of their countries’ borders. Everyone has their differences, and with over seven billion humans on this planet, it’s started to get a bit sloppy. Yes, many get lost in their emotions amongst each other, but many have also found special places for themselves.
Certain people are put on our Earth to make a unique difference. Those that know him know how much of a difference he’s already made. Andy Dicker is a skateboarder, an artist and so much more. The head camp counselor at the YMCA Element Skate Camp at Sequoia Lake, he’s a role model for all those his younger and his elder alike. A pure soul that engages his students, his peers and his leaders with equal and great enthusiasm.
A soul like his is hard to find.
Andy is down but not out. He suffered serious head trauma while skateboarding in San Francisco about two weeks ago. His progress is slow, but we know his inner strength will bring him back to his old self in due time. His fervor unmatched, he’s capable of anything, something skateboarding was a part of teaching. There’s a hot fire burning in each of us. One that helps us push on regardless of any circumstance.
Many skaters have that fire. An ever-burning flame that keeps them going. But Andy… He had a such a strong devotion in him, that it constantly spread to those around him. Those that are now here for him in a time of need. The skateboarding world is here to show support, and all additional help qualifies as a great cause.
If you have $20, $200 or just one share on Facebook, feel free to help that cause right here at:
