While walking around at Riot Fest in Toronto this year I noticed the skate4cancer tent. I stopped by and had a nice chat with Rob Dyer the founder of s4c. I’ve met him a few times before at events around southern Ontario and he is honestly the kindest person I have ever met.
'Rob lost a lot of very important people to cancer in a very short amount of time. He was young, devastated and ambitious, so he decided to channel all of his emotions into one big idea: a skate marathon that started on the west coast of the United States and culminated in his hometown near Toronto. The whole idea was to prove that anything can be done with enough determination, and he hoped that this philosophy would inspire people to stay optimistic about dealing with cancer in its various forms.'
