HHF X WOODWARD 2013: DIGITAL MEDIA

This summer, twenty-one lucky NYC skateboarders went out to Camp Woodward to spend a week skating in one of Harold’s favorite places in the world. This year, for the very first time, HHF sent a camper to Woodward for the Digital Media program. HHF intern Amber Cruceta got to film the rest of the twenty HHF campers which lead to an edit that got Amber Target Camper of the Week! Representing Harold and the foundation to the fullest!

WOODWARD 2012

Well, we did it again.

Just as we do every year, we sent a few lucky souls to one of the best training grounds in America – Woodward Skate Camp.

Nineteen young NYC skaters piled onto a bus headed for the hallowed grounds and came back a week later with new tricks, new friends, the drive and ability to skate even harder than before.

Here’s a glimpse at some of the madness that went down.

HHF 2011 YEAR IN REVIEW VIDEO

The mission of the Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF) is to use skateboarding as a vehicle to provide inner-city youth with valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness and the development of life skills.

Like many inner-city youth, Harold struggled to find a positive outlet to express his emotions, creativity and boundless energy, and to cope with challenging situations at home and school. For Harold, skateboarding was that positive outlet, providing him with countless opportunities for personal and professional growth. We believe skateboarding can do the same for the youth the Foundation serves.

As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the HHF welcomes tax-deductible donations to support its various programs and initiatives.

Since 2007, the HHF has encouraged and supported local NYC kids’ interest in skateboarding through camp scholarships, winter skate trips, the annual Harold Hunter Day skate jam, and school/career programs.

Check out the HHF 2011 Year in Review video below, and please help further the Foundation’s inspirational work by making a tax-deductible donation today.

From all of us at the Harold Hunter Foundation, we sincerely thank you for your support!
