In honor of Dylan Rieder’s birthday, Austyn Gillette will be skating from Downtown Los Angeles to Santa Monica State Beach tomorrow morning at 9am PST. The goal of this mission is to raise awareness for the Dylan Rieder Foundation. Gillette is hoping that other skaters from around the globe will also skate safely tomorrow morning to honor Rieder’s life and legacy. A limited edition t-shirt will be released via the Former website to commemorate the event with 100% of profits going to City of Hope Hospital. If you want to follow along, Gillette’s journey will be broadcast live via Former’s Instagram.
