Kip Moore Opens New Skatepark in Ohio
Kip Moore launched a new skatepark in Cincinnati, Ohio on Wednesday (July 27). The Warsaw Federal Skatepark, a project of the Lower Price Hill Neighborhood Enhancement Program, now features a 35-foot-by-68-foot pump track, three grind rails and a Hubba skate ledge as part of Moore's Comeback Kid Skatepark Project.
"I'm always searching for purpose in my life,” Moore says in a press release. "I battle the feeling of if I'm doing enough with the small amount of time I have on this earth each day. I'm so blessed to get to do what I do, but I have always believed with those blessings come responsibility. Days like today give me that feeling of purpose. I get to see a direct impact in a needed community. I get to see the smiles on these kid’s faces and the positive impact it creates. There are so many things I wanna do in the inner cities and this is just the beginning."
Children in attendance for the park opening received free skateboards, helmets, knee pads, and backpacks filled with T-shirts and socks.
The Comeback Kid Skatepark Project is the first initiative of Kip's Kids Fund, a donor-advised fund that is focused on youth and teens. A press release indicates that future projects will also be focused on kids in inner cities.
Other skatepark locations include Nashville, Tenn.; Boston, Mass.; San Marcos, Texas; Annapolis, Md. For more information visit Kip's Kids Advised Fund.
