Vans Presents Pass the Bucket with Dennis Martinez

Pass the Bucket, a video presented by Vans, chronicles the story of Dennis Martinez – 1977 World Freestyle Champion skateboarder and 1978 U.S. Champion. At the age of 16, Martinez had all he ever dreamed of (including a salary of $40,000/month while still in high school) until a serious drug habit became an addiction and he lost everything. Now, sober and getting his life back on track, Martinez is involved in a local program that helps rehabilitate convicted drug addicts and educate youths about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. Watch the video above to see how this programing is giving former addicts the tools they need to stay clean.
