Get Rad For Ray 2016
It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Atlanta GA at Kennesaw skatepark. Hundreds of people came out to celebrate the life of Wilmington, NC native Ray Underhill . The world lost Ray in 2008, after his long battle with Chordoma, a rare but relentless spinal cancer. To honor his life, Ray’s family and friends have joined the City Of Kennesaw to host the Get Rad For Ray presented by Kennesaw Skateshop. TonyHawk Foundation and friends organized the Get Rad For Ray presented to celebrate the life and legacy of one of skateboarding’s all-time greats, Ray Underhill.
