Amazing news! Paying it forward!

Hey Texas Speed Members!

Please read below an update from Aryk and Myra’s mom – they have started an incredible skating club at their school after being inspired by all the great skaters and coaches with the Texas Speed Club – how’s that for paying it forward??!! Thank you to the Tyagi family!!!

“Aryk and Myra have learned and received so much love from the Texas Speed Club that they decided to open an after school skate program in their school. All the money raised will go for buying more gears for the kids. The program launched today.

Roadrunners program is developed by kids for kids. Kids who don’t fit into traditional “sports-kids” image may feel left out and socially isolated. In addition there is a population of kids with special needs such as Autism and ADHD who are not engaged in any school teams and sports. The program includes elementary kids who know how to skate to mentor and teach the kids who may be at risk of depression and have other special needs to skate. Skating is a happy activity for kids; it brings smile to every child’s face. Additionally, it teaches kids to build each other up and not focus on each other’s differences, but rather to help each other smile.”

I bought all 15 set of skates and gear today and despite spending so much money, I am feeling very opulent. The experience of watching kids learn from all the coaches and fellow friends and spread it further was overwhelming! Thank You All for making a ripple that turned into a wave for them!!” ” – Priyanka Tyagi
