Last week, NUY Executive Director Josh Hinnenkamp blogged an update on the drive to raise $10K to meet the Northfield Healthy Community Initiative’s (HCI) challenge grant for the Skateboard Coalition and the Skateplaza, now designated for Ames Park.
The Skateboard Coalition evidently needs approximately about $500 more to fully meet the match (HIC matches dollar for dollar up to $10K) and the deadline is April 1, next Tuesday.
So if you’d like to donate, on the HCI site it says:
Donations to support a new skate park can be mailed to the Northfield Union of Youth, P.O. Box 481, Northfield, MN 55057.
Checks can be made out to the Northfield Union of Youth – please write “Skateboard Coalition” in the memo line.
Donations are tax-deductible.
And if they hit the $10K goal, I’m sure Skateboard Coaltion co-founder Joe McGowan will go apeshit be really happy, like this:
