PASCO COUNTY, FL. -The Grind for Life (GFL) Series is a national, all ages and skills skateboarding contest series benefiting the Grind for Life Organization, a 501(c)(3) non-profit that assists cancer patients with travel expenses.
Grind For Life was founded in 2003, by life-long skateboarder Mike Rogers, after his second battle with sarcoma cancer. Mike’s tumor was located behind his right eye and nasal cavity.
He endured a 17-hour surgery a cranial-facial resection with a brain-lift, removal of his eye, cheekbone, and half of the roof of his mouth and some of his teeth.
He beat cancer once as a pre-teen, and again 25 years later. Mike beat the odds and is a competitive skateboarder again.
