Today is #ShuvitCancerDay, in honor of the amazing Elaine Shallcross. She passed away earlier this year but not before leaving her mark on the skate community and the world. Elaine founded the #ShuvitCancer movement after being diagnosed with cancer more than a year ago. Having never stepped on a board before, she made it her goal to do a shuvit to raise money for cancer research. Go film a clip for a cause.
