Per Photo Editor Ryan Loewy:

Team,

FINAL UPDATE | MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

As of today, Thursday, July 26th, 2018, Daniel received his skates.

I cannot express my gratitude and love to everyone involved in this endeavor.

I’d like to specifically thank the following people:

MAL ASHBY
If it wasn’t for Malik, the idea of doing this wouldn’t have been realized. Thank you sir.

MATT MICKEY
Mr. Matt worked closely with me to ensure we provided Daniel everything he needed. He included extras like an issue of Be-Mag, along with DVD’s and Tee’s.

PHILIP MOORE
Philip assisted in verifying address details and ensuring we were all good to go.

JON JULIO
Thank you Mr. Jon for making a great skate for the blade community. So glad to be able to provide Daniel a pair of THEM 908’s

CLETUS KUHN
Cletus provided an extra set of OYSI frames to keep Daniel going. Thank you so much Cletus.

LONG TONTHAT
Long contributed the Go Project 72’s via Oak City Skate Shop. Thank you Long.

PATRICK RIDDER
Pat is sending additionals to Daniel. Thank you Patrick!

BRIAN FREEMAN
Brian has been pivotal in promoting good vibes in the scene and assisted in coordination. Thank you Brian.

MANUEL RODRIGUEZ
Manny got in touch with me and helped out in spreading the word as well. Thank you bud.

MIKE TORRES
Mike gave me solid input for the liners, ultimately steering us in the direction of the Intuition Liners to ensure the skates fit Daniel’s feet properly.

LONNIE GALLEGOS
Lonnie was our last contributor and helped us reach our final goal. Please help Lonnie out with his current endeavor in raising funds for Mr. Robert Guerrero. It is dire that we continue to help our brothers and sisters when in need.

ALL OF YOU
Every single one of you has been instrumental in keeping this sport going the way it is. Every day you skate, talk about skating, think about skating, is a professional day lived.

So much love to everyone in our sport.

I cannot thank people enough.

Love Forever,
Ryan
