Nitro Circus Fundraiser Gets Icy Between MMA & Surfing Legends
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Aug. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nitro Circus hosted the inaugural A Night to Live Like Roner event August 2, 2018 at SeaLegs at the Beach – an action sports gathering to celebrate the life of Erik Roner, world-renowned skier, skydiver and a founding member of the Nitro Circus Crew. The event raised money for Erik's wife, Annika and their two small children, Oskar (8) and Kasper (4). A portion of the funds went towards the 'Live Like Roner Foundation,' a charity set up in Erik's name, dedicated to supporting families of action sports in their greatest time of need.
The Bolsa Chica State Beach played host to the event's live music, comedic performances, carnival games, refreshments, a snowboard and ski rail jam with real snow, skydiving exhibition, helicopter ball drop and some casual collisions between celebrity athletes from around the world!
Khalil 'Tiki' Ghosn, American mixed martial artist veteran; Makaukai 'Makua' Rothman, American big wave rider, professional surfer and musician; and Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson, American mixed martial artist, actor and retired professional wrestler broke out into a fight at the rail jam course. A snowball fight that is.
Tiki, Makua and Rampage are among many who came to support the charity event to provide professional athletes and their families financial support after injury – by way of granting funds for rehabilitation or long-term disability, necessary equipment during and after rehabilitation, and educational scholarships. Some of the fundraising activities included silent and live auctions, VIP access for guests to mingle with athletes, celebrities, and of course, the Nitro Circus Crew.
cbdMD was honored to sponsor the event and educate athletes and attendees of the valuable properties of CBD oil for an array of ailments varying in severity.
