For those of you who don't know, Dan Burger has been a member of our San Francisco Bay Area skating family for many years. He has skated in many of the events we have presented over the years including the SF to LA "Skate Against Violence", The SF to Santa Cruz "Bridge to Boardwalk Roll", the Calistoga Roadskate and many, many more.  Dan is one of the pioneers of the X-Games Inline Downhill and has truly made his mark as a major personality on the world class skater scene

Last September Dan took a devastating fall in the Inline Downhill World Championships in Italy. His knee was and leg was terribly damaged and complications after the accident almost caused the leg to be amputated. He has begun the operations begin repair of his knee.  He has insurance that will cover most specific medical care, but he can't earn a living in his current condition. We know these are hard times for Dan and we want to help him.  We think you would want to help as well. 

We at CORA are planning something that will help Dan, at least through the summer and help boost the skate scene in Northern California.  It's being called the Dan Burger Points Series. These will take place about once a month on Canada Road in San Mateo and one event at Lake Merrit in Oakland, Ca.  The events are:
