The Poseiden foundation hosted its third annual Share the Love and Empowerment Tour in Oahu this past March, visiting schools and non-profit organizations to spend time with children and inspire them to follow their passions. Many athletes participated including NikeSB rider Elissa Steamer, snowboarding Olympian and Vans rider Cara-Beth Burnside, and surfer and director of 3 Killas y 1 Kiwi Marina Zawiska.
Created by Micaela Ramirez in 2007, the Poseiden foundation hosts events that combine hands on activities and inspiring stories from professional athletes. These events help promote self-confidence and empowerment through sports, encouraging children to dream big.
This year’s Oahu Tour visited Wailau Elementary School and Kids Hurt Too, a non-profit dedicated to helping kids cope with the loss of a parent. Those in attendance learned how to skate and listened to athletes share how they made their dreams a reality.
The Poseiden Foundation is now the official non-profit for the Pipeline Women’s Pro event, which Bethany Hamilton recently took first place in. Due to its positive impact on numerous communities, the Poseiden Foundation receives support from many companies, including Hoopla Skateboards, Vans, and Etnies.
