Support Gerhard Gross’ Battle | Snowboarding VS. cancer
There’s not a lot that Gerhard Gross hasn’t done for snowboarding. He was an instrumental part of the early Whistler Gnarcore days, was a pro rider (even nabbing that insane SBC cover below), was a team manager, wrote about his passion for many media sources, became an editor at Snowboard Canada, then moved down to Cali to become the editor for TRANSWORLD SNOWboarding, always helping save the world with ‘Protect Our Winters’ in his spare time, then moved on up to lead the Dew Tour,… and those are just the titles I can think of off the top of my head. More important than any of this is that G is a beautiful person and dear friend and a fucking warrior. G truly loves snowboarding, the world, and especially his wife, and mini G!
Right now Gerhard and his family can use the support of snowboarding. He’s been battling cancer for over a year now and fellow boarders/friends have set up a GoFundMe for G and Kris and G4.
Cancer has been giving the snowboarding world a tough go over the past few years so lets put an end to it!
Hello, my close friend @gerhardmg is battling stage 4 stomach cancer. I couldn't be more proud of his courage and positive energy and zen mastery. There has been a gofundme set up to help him and his family. You can read his story there. Please donate and share this link if you can: gofundme.com/Gerhard-Kristen-gross-fundraiser Thank you! #cancer
So sad to hear about SBC Media closing its doors today. Seeing myself on those pages and getting to spend three years as associate editor was a huge honor. When I first started it blew my mind that I was getting a steady paycheck to travel the world and write about snowboarding. After talking to some friends there today I hope it won't truly be the end and that someone will come along to revive the title. Canadian snowboarding still needs something like SBC in the media space. #RIPsbc
