The day of Kevin’s celebration of life, his sister Caren said “I want to build a skate park in Kevin’s name” Since that day she has fought tooth and nail to do so. Literally blood, sweat and tears has been put into this project. Almost 6 years later the skate park, in Kevin’s name is on the horizon! We still have a ton of work to do. But, leading the charge and still fighting to have a safe place for the children of the Valley to skateboard..is Caren and her team of volunteers
We have raised over $80,000 by grassroots fundraising and donations. Holding family friendly and affordable fundraisers. Each January we have The Skateboard Art show at the Conway Public Library, once a year they have The Battle of the Bands and The Wicked Rides car show to name a few. They sell KPMSP merchandise like t-shirts, hoodies, ball caps and stickers and they have donation cans in these businesses around the Valley. Headlines , First Stop, Revolution Records and Leavitt’s bakery.
In other news , We have become their own non-profit 501(3)C. (N32)

Director Caren Peare has created an after school program curriculum “Skateboarding 101” Working with Project Succeed .
We are so excited to be doing skateboarding 101 again!!! We are officially kicking off our school year with Pine Tree Elementary!! Huge thank you to Project Succeed for allowing us to be apart of your after school program again! Carrying on Kevin’s love of teaching others how to skateboard. Children are taught safety first . Then they are taught to build a skateboard , then finally learn to ride it. They leave the program with the skateboard they built. This will be something the group will continue once the skatepark has been built. They also are planning on offering classes and summer programs or camps.
