New York Skate Series: EDS Street Session

May 31, 2016

nysseds

This memorial day weekend the New York Skate Series teamed up with I Roll NY in skating for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and a young blader, Steven White, who has EDS. We hosted an all day session sponsored by Rollerblade who was kind enough to provide a free skate voucher which local blader Malik Ashby won and in his support for EDS, gave to Steven to encourage him to stay strong and keep blading. Featuring skating from Zach Cramer, Pablo Munoz, Adonis Taylor, Joey Lunger, Andy Bodnar, and Tadd Labozzetta. Get more information on EDS and Steven’s story below.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a collection of heritable connective tissue disorders. We had the pleasure of meeting an 8 year-old named Steven White who has EDS and his dedicated mother, Yoly Ym, at our first event of the 2016 season. It’s awe inspiring to watch Steven skate, knowing that when the skates come off, he wears leg braces and sometimes uses a wheel chair. Steven is able to rollerblade, because his skates provide him with support, stability, and freedom that does not exist with other alternative sports or with most sports for that matter.

Why Zebra Stripes?
Doctors are taught the phrase “When you hear the sound of hooves, think horses, not zebras”. In medicine, “zebra” is used for a rare disease or condition. Doctors often assume that the simplest explanation is correct to avoid misdiagnosis with rare illnesses. But many medical professionals forget that “zebras” DO exist and so getting a diagnosis and treatment is more difficult for rare conditions. EDS is a rare condition and those with it are known as medical zebras.

NYSS Astoria Jam Winners

Sunday, April 24th the New York Skate Series kicked off their 2016 season with a jam session at the Astoria skatepark sponsored by Rollerblade. There was a great turnout and it was a great way to bring in the good weather and reunite with the friends we haven’t seen in a while.


First place winner Augusto Castillo – X Grind

As the competition portion of the jam session came to an end, the judges had a tough decision separating first and second place, but a decision was made and Augusto Castillo came out on top, taking first place. Augusto won a voucher for a free pair of Rollerblade brand skates along with prize money. Joey Lunger and Trevor Johnson followed Augusto taking 2nd and 3rd place with Rollerblade soft goods, frames, and prize money. Check out our photo coverage below and see all the photos on the NYSS Facebook page.
