Pro Skater Ryan Sheckler Building Skate Park for Port Gamble K'Lallam

ICTMN Staff

Professional skateboarder Ryan Sheckler's Sheckler Foundation was looking for a place to do good and found it on the Kitsap Peninsula in Washington state.

In the spring, the Sheckler Foundation held a competition in the spring to choose a project for its Be the Change initiative, and the winner, by popular vote, was the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe. The Foundation will construct a skate park, proposed by young people of the tribe, on tribal land. A page at the Sheckler Foundation website lists needed resources, which include:

• Lumber

• Excavating services

• Concrete

• And, of course, volunteers.

Sheckler Foundation/Be the Change has posted numerous photos from the project on its blog and released its first video report on YouTube:

Right on. I happen to live in the same community as Ryan Sheckler. He has a less than stellar reputation. But this is an awesome program and kudos to him for supporting Native people.
