Skaters came from all over the United States for the Grind for Life Series, a nationally recognized bowl and street skateboarding competition, at SK8 Charleston on Saturday, Oct. 2, 2021. A portion of entry fees from the event will be donated to the Grind for Life Organization, a 501(c)(3) that raises money to assist cancer patients with travel expenses for treatment that are not usually covered by health insurance. This was the first time that Charleston has hosted the competition.
