“In May 2019, at the age of 29, our friend Ben Raemers took his own life. His passion for life and skateboarding has always been contagious. Ben will be remembered by all as a loving son, brother, friend and an incredible skateboarder who inspired many and continues to do so.
The Ben Raemers Foundation seeks to improve mental health and wellbeing in the skateboarding community by raising awareness around the tools, techniques and skills that can be used within the community to address issues surrounding mental health and suicide.
The Foundation aims to bring awareness of mental health issues and suicide to the forefront, ending the stigma and burden that so often clouds these issues.” More infos at The Ben Raemers Foundation web site.
