Skaters worldwide came together at their local skate shops in April 2011, not only for the REAL Since Day One Premieres, but also to raise money for the JohnnyKicksCancer foundation. It was a world wide effort with a sliding scale – any donation was taken at the premieres.
In 2011 the JohnnyKicksCancer foundation was able to Raise $65,000 which they presented to the Texas Children’s hospital.
Thank You to every single skate shop that hosted a REAL premiere/benefit and thank you to every single skater that came to the premieres. It simply would not have been possible without you.

In our lifetime there have been few people that have brought the skateboarding world completely together as a whole. Johnny Romano is one of those people. He will always remain an inspiration to us all.
Johnny was and always will be an inspiration to all of us here at REAL. A skateboarder who showed us what true determination and courage are. In his short life he united skaters worldwide and his influence on all of us will be remembered forever. The proceeds from his deck and shirts went to the Johnnykickscancer organization.
