Shred for Logan tees

Shred For Logan!

The “Shred for Logan” event was a great success! If you didn’t know, Logan Wells was skateboarding in the city of Yorba Linda at night
and was struck by a vehicle. His injuries were fatal. The Active Crew, Family and close friends had to put together something to celebrate the life of Logan. The “Shred for Logan” event took place at the Brea skatepark just down the street from Active Brea. Over a thousand people showed up to show their support. Active brought out the grill, friends made and sold some really sweet shirts to raise funds for a charity for Logan. Some other close friends of Logan’s built and painted a kinda “Ball Toss” game to win product and tees! A few different Skateboarding contests were going down all day!
The contests were held on the ledges, the drop gap, and the famous 12 stair in the actual park! Some great prizes from the sponsors! Shout out to Active, Rip N Dip, Vans, and many others! The day was amazing, finishing into the late afternoon hours. The whole crew raised about $3,000, from selling shirts, excepting donations form local kids that were friends with Logan! He has amazing friends and we will never forget Logan Wells!
