The Ben Raemers Foundation


It’s mental health awareness day today… if you could do one thing today please go follow / support the Ben Raemers Foundation. The amazing people behind this project have some words below about it. Click HERE to head to their site or click the Ben photo below. ❤️

“In May 2019, at the age of 29, professional skateboarder 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 inspiration.

Help us to continue his legacy by improving mental health and wellbeing in the skateboarding community. The Ben Raemers Foundation seeks to raise awareness around the tools, techniques and skills that can be used within the community to address issues surrounding mental health and suicide.

The Foundation will attend and host events with an aim to bring awareness of mental health issues and suicide to the forefront. It wants to end the stigma and burden that so often clouds these issues, in memory of an absolute legend that we have lost.”
