Ambush Hosts a Fun Day of Wakeboarding for a Good Cause
My sunglasses saved me all day last Saturday at Terminus Wake Park. Not only was the sun brighter than a St. Pauli Girl sign in a college dorm room, but I had to make sure that I kept my man card securely in my back pocket. There were so many touching moments at the Ambush Gives Back benefit event that the ever-present smile on my face occasionally gave way to a certain level of emotion that I’m not accustomed to at an Ambush event. Ambush Gives Back B4BC Benefit was rewarding and fulfilling in so many ways.
The motivation for putting on our inaugural Ambush Gives Back event was the fact that two of the three women in the Ambush founding family are breast cancer survivors. Our family has had two unbelievably positive outcomes when it comes to battling and defeating breast cancer. Other families have not been so fortunate. In a gracious effort to pay it forward, we wanted to put on this event to help raise money for Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC), a charity whose sole purpose is supporting those in the action sports community who are affected by breast cancer.
The most moving part of the Ambush Gives Back benefit event was the affirmation of how tight-knit the action sports community really is. Families came from all over to be a part of the fundraiser. Bob Soven, Melissa Marquardt, and Alexa Score took time out of their chaotic summer schedules to ride with their fans, give them a few pointers on the cable, and help raise money and awareness for B4BC. Top local cable riders donated money to compete for a pair of custom Liquid Force x Ambush Board Co. x B4BC wakeboards. And, nearly everyone on site bought raffle tickets. In short, everyone came together as one big family and helped raise $6,624 for B4BC.
Special thanks to Terminus WakePark, Liquid Force, and Body Glove for helping us put on this incredible charity event. And, much appreciation to our sponsors for donating to B4BC, especially Chick-fil-A, Subaru of Kennesaw, Benchmark Physical Therapy, Op5, FedEx, Springbot, Terminus Tees, GoPro, Reef, EGO Power+, STZ, Prestigious Cleaning Team, Dyer & Posta, KAMS Auto, and Elite Hair Studio.
