Bench! Manual Pad! Fun Box! Bench! Manual Pad!

These are the cries I hear each week, and I need your help!

Our youth are taking things into their own hands and using multiple Freshpark ramps to create their own manual pads. The problem is it takes several of the ramps to do so, leaving only a couple of ramps to skate the way they were intended. Additionally, we're creating a bit of a liability for ourselves in not using the ramps as originally intended.

So, how can you help? Send money of course! We need $250 to get the manual pad from Freshpark and $250 to get a Mojo Skate Bench. This includes freight to our location. Why so expensive you may ask? Both ramps are highly portable and lightweight, which is exactly what we need for our mobile application.

When we started Skate Night, we knew we were starting with the bare minimum in ramps and rails. So far, we have only been able to add 2 grind rails. One we purchased off Craigslist, and one that was donated by Avondale Bible Church & Pastor Ben. (Thanks again!)

All this to say, please donate today to help expand our skate ministry. Already we have seen over 20 kids come through our doors with over a handful of kids that come consistently every week. We're working with three churches to set up events at their locations sometime this spring/summer. God is on the move in the skate community. Grab on and come along for the ride.
