Skate, bike, roll at Skate the Lake

Boarding for Breast Cancer

Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) will host its 19th annual Skate the Lake on Aug. 5 and 6. The fundraising event will start on Aug. 5 with a Community Celebration from 12 to 7 p.m. at Commons Beach in Tahoe City. There will be live music from Honey Vixen, Bear Whiskey, Fragile Like a Bomb and more. There will be food and drinks, yoga, a silent auction and raffles. All are welcome to come by to register for Skate the Lake, grab a goodie bag and meet the other skaters.

On Aug. 6, the 28-mile skate starts with skaters meeting at 7:30 a.m. at 64 Acres in Tahoe City for check-in and shuttles. The shuttles will load sharply at 8 a.m. and head to Sugar Pine Point State Park. At 9 a.m., the skate-bike-roll will start down the West Shore, out to Palisades Tahoe and back to Commons Beach by 1:30 p.m. Participants can also join at the 8-mile drop-in point by meeting at noon in front of 22 Bistro at the Village at Palisades Tahoe. Following the event there will be an award ceremony and celebration at 2 p.m.

The two-day event will support B4BC’s mission of staying healthy and active to help prevent breast cancer and benefit the nonprofit’s education, prevention and survivorship programs. |
