Meet the Hagar Family:

Daytime Radness Hager


“The 2016 Daytime Radness event will benefit the Hager’s (a South Florida skate family) and bring awareness to Colon Cancer.

13710473_1105255806164308_40708214621299733_oAaron Hager is a hardworking, loving husband and father. On his 43rd birthday he thought he was having a stroke at work. He called his wife who picked him up and took him to the ER. He was promptly admitted.

After many tests the doctors found a large tumor in his colon. He has had the tumor/cancer removed and is now undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Aaron has documented his story and has posted it in hopes that it will help others who are going through the same situation. If you would like to read his story please visit

Angie and Aaron have two boys. Their 11-year-old Roman is on a mission to become a professional skateboarder and their 10-year-old Rocco is someone who always makes you smile at life. Rocco too has a dealt with medical issues struggling with childhood diabetes most of his life. But despite all this, the Hager’s are still known for giving back to the skate community and being a HUGE support to others.”
