Skate for Sirmon at the Vans park

This past Saturday was the Skate for Sirmon Benefit held at the Vans park at the Block of Orange Mall.  It was held to raise funds to help a good friend and fellow skater John Sirmon who was diagnosed with colon cancer.  For those of you who don’t know Sirmon, go to www.savesirmon.com to get the full story.  The event had raffles, tons of prizes, and lots of friends and skaters who showed up to support.  It was great hanging out with Big John and to see that he still has that infectious smile and positive energy around him.  We’re all praying for you John and thanks to all who came and supported!!

…I also wanted to mention that with all that he is going through and dealing with, Sirmon was asking me about my website and how photography is going.  Always thinking of others, just a testament to the type of person he is.  Much love John, stay up.
