Lena is one of Finland’s oldest skateboarders and helps others around the world
When Lena was 61, she invested in a skateboard because she was worried her bike would be stolen. Just four years later, she skates everywhere and has taken up graffiti art and acrobatics. The local celebrity also teaches others at Lena’s Early Skate Bird classes. But she hasn’t stopped there. When Lena heard about a project to open a skate park in Uganda, she went out to help, and donated 60 skateboards in the process. Now? She’s involved with building another skate park in northern Uganda.
