About Clash at Clairemont:
The Clash at Clairemont began in 2007 as a cooperative effort between pro skateboarder Andy Macdonald, the YMCA, Grind for Life and industry sponsors. The event, a celebration of the newly acquired ramp and park renovations, was an opportunity to create a fundraiser that benefits the Mission Valley/Krause Family Skate & Bike Park and the Grind for Life cancer charity. The event featured more than 45 of today’s best action sports athletes, live music and family fun, and it was a huge success! Over the past seven years, media attention and attendance skyrocketed, and now the Clash at Clairemont has cemented its first class reputation as a terrific family-oriented celebration of action sports and charitable cause!
About Grind for Life:
Grind For Life, Inc., was founded in 2003 by lifelong skateboarder Mike Rogers, after his second battle with sarcoma cancer. The mission of the Grind For Life organization is to provide financial assistance to cancer patients and their families when traveling long distances to doctors and hospitals. In addition, they educate and inspire these patients and families concerning cancer survival and recovery. Those who qualify may request assistance for travel and lodging expenses, meals and personal needs.
