2020 Skate4Life Event & Skate Competition

The 10th Annual Skate4Life event was set for Saturday, May 2nd, but we are having to postpone the event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We plan to reschedule the event to a date in the Fall of 2020. Please still plan to join us as we celebrate life and promote awareness of depression and suicide resources and support, with music, vendors, food, prizes, and the skateboard competition!

10th Annual Skate4Life Event

The annual Skate4Life event is held every May in memory of James “Dylan” McNeill and Cody Nelson Arrington, two local Raleigh skateboarders and close friends who took their lives in 2011. This free event and skateboarding competition is a celebration of life — a day filled with love, fun, food and family.
