We’re here at the 2013 World Yo-Yo Contest in Orlando, Florida! The world’s best yo-yo players and competitors are arriving and the competition begins in less than 24 hours!
Hey folks! It’s Dano the Mano and as the month of July comes to an end I wanted to give an update on the “Ride for Ci” charity efforts through the sales of the Duncan Ignite yo-yo’s. So far almost 800 yo- yo’s have been sold through out the summer during my travels to different events. Support for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has been unreal! My original goal was to raise $5000 selling 1000 “Ride for Ci” yo-yo’s by September 1st. I’m proud to say as of July 22, $6250 had already been donated. Between the yo-yo sales, and some large donations from a handful of supporters it’s hard to say how much we will raise in the end, but I’m predicting close to at least $9000!
We still have one month and two more stops on the King of Wake series, including the Wakeboard Worlds in Kenosha, Wisconsin. On August 17-18 Duncan Crew members will be on site in Wisconsin demonstrating and selling yo-yo’s to help support the effort.
Free tickets will be available for all yo-yo enthusiasts just email Brandon Jackson.
If you can’t make it to the Wakeboard Worlds, yo-yo’s are still available through www.perfski.com
From our amazing friend Danny Amir: “This summer with some amazing people I have been helping raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through the “Ride for Ci” charity efforts started by Nicola Butler. Proud to say today we hit our initial goal of $5000!!! There are still more then 200 yo-yo’s left and much more money to be raised!”

Dano the Mano here, and I just wanted to give a quick update on how the “Ride for Ci” charity efforts are going. It’s been about two months now since Duncan Toys sent out 1000 “Ride for Ci” charity Ignite yo-yos. Since Mid-April, I’m proud to say about half or more the yo-yos have sold, and already more then $3000 has already been donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. As of today we have more then three quarters of the $5000 goal! Support has been unreal so far!
We’ve sold out at just about every event I’ve been to this year already, including the Nautique Wake Games and Masters, two stops on the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour, the Malibu Riders Experience, and Performance Ski & Surfs Gravel Tour. Now there are still plenty of yo-yos, and events as the summer is just officially starting.
If you want to help support and find out more info about Ci Naji or Cystic Fibrosis you can check out www.rideforci.com. To get charity yo-yos, either find me at any of the Rockstar “King of Wake” series events or online at www.perfski.com.
A big thank you to everybody who has already shown support for this effort, I have no doubt in my mind that we won’t only reach the goal, but surpass it for sure!
