Conscious Alliance will be sponsoring¬†ONE Gathering ‚Äì Skate for Life
, a¬†skateboarding competition created to unite the youth of the Denver community with the Native American youth of Colorado and surrounding states. It is a means of outreach to educate local communities of the social and health challenges Native American youth face today. The competition will take place at the Downtown Denver Skatepark (20th&Little Raven) on July 12th, 2014.
The overall goal for the¬†ONE Gathering ‚Äì Skate For Life
¬†is to promote inclusiveness and a positive impact on youth of all races by incorporating artistic achievement, social change, innovation, education, and healthy way of life outlooks. Skateboarding has many benefits: it builds self-confidence and self-esteem; encourages individuality and creativity; teaches social skills and respect for others; and brings communities together. It also promotes good health as it builds strength, balance and coordination as well as cardiovascular improvement. This is a drug and alcohol free event.

, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to instilling hope and supporting youth movements through Live Life Call To Action Campaigns.
