"Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand, is proud to present the Vans x RADShare Project, a short video highlighting Vans’ ongoing partnership with the Richmond, Virginia-based nonprofit to uplift local underserved communities and empower more kids to ride BMX. Timed around Go BMX Day this July 20, 2021, the Vans x RADShare Project was designed to drive participation.

Earlier this year, Vans team riders Trey Jones, Perris Benegas and Marshall “The Major” Gehrke spent time at Richmond’s Gillies Creek Park, where RADShare was founded in 2019 by BMX community leader Steve Crandall. RADShare’s mission since inception is to create a safe, accessible BMX culture through developing shared spaces, educational workshops, gear donations and advocating to close the opportunity gap. Vans teamed up with RADShare to support this effort, providing one-on-one experiences for local kids to ride with BMX pros and get dialed in with new footwear, as well as helmets and bikes." Vans
