The 6th annual Boarding for Breast Cancer Skate the Lake. Skaters cover a 32 mile portion of Lake Tahoe in the name of breast cancer awareness and education. It took place on typically warm and sunny Tahoe Saturday. An amazing, fun, scenic, inspirational, relaxing and healthy-life kind of charitable day. www.b4bc.org.
