Sponsoring Ghana’s Hidden Stars Dreams

Last summer I introduced my followers to Paul Korankye, a skating enthusiast from the InlinePlanet shater’s network. We keep in touch by email and the social network from time to time. Here is a recent training shot of the Hidden Stars Skaters Dream Club.

As a 2010 Christmas present, Get Rolling donated $200 for gear and international shipping fees to Ghana. I selected the following items from Paul’s wish list at Inline Warehouse, one of my favorite skating retailers:

  • 2 sets of Rollerblade 90mm wheels with SG9 Bearings
  • 1 red Firefly Supernova Safety Light w/ Clip
  • 1 Sonic Super Bearing Oil  1/2 Oz
  • 1 Rollerblade Inline Skate Blade Tool
  • 1 Sonic Turbo Wash Bearing Cleaner
  • 1 TWINCAM Speed Bearings ABEC5 16pk

Helmets, the most essential safety gear!

Judging by these latest photos, more club members are sporting essential safety gear. I hope that other skaters or clubs here in the U.S. who can afford to be generous will check the Hidden Stars web site to see what else we can do to keep the team rolling safely toward their stars.
