Donations sought to complete vert ramp at Springs skateboard park | ramps, sk8strong, springs - Colorado Springs Gazette, CO
The ramps are the result of the fundraising and behind-the-scenes work of Colorado Springs teenager Jonathan Schwan and local nonprofit Sk8Strong.
As reported in April, Schwan and Sk8Strong raised money and negotiated to buy the pro-quality ramps from a skatepark being dismantled in Denver.
The city agreed to cover much of the cost of installation.
To help cover remaining costs, Sk8Strong is asking for donations. Donors have a chance to win a week at Camp Woodward, the skateboarding and snowboarding practice facility at Copper Mountain. A week at the camp normally would cost about $1,000.
You can receive a ticket to the raffle with a $10 donation to the effort through the Pikes Peak Community Foundation: Sk8-Strong | Pikes Peak Community Foundation.
The drawing is planned to coincide with the tentative opening of the vert ramp July 7.
