Oakley and OneSight Team Up to Give the Gift of Sight to Elementary School Kids in Santa Ana, Calif.
The dark-haired fifth grader can’t believe what she’s seeing. Well, actually, April Garnica can’t believe what she wasn’t seeing just minutes prior. Bob Burnquist, the legendary big air skateboarder, is kneeling at the girl’s side, beaming as she pulls her black-framed eyeglasses away from her eyes and then puts them back on. The difference is stunning. She looks around the auditorium, surrounded by other Martin Elementary School kids who are going through the same eye tests she did earlier in the day. She reads signs and notices details that were previously blurry. Burnquist, who delivered the glasses to April as part of the OneSight program, has helped to give her the gift of sight.
In a couple days, Dew Tour City Championships (Oct. 18-21) starts up in San Francisco. Greg Lutzka will be there. He’s spending his days as he always has: skating, skating and skating. Be it in his backyard mini-ramp or trying to find spots around town – before the police roll in – he’s constantly working to improve his craft.
