Having A SKATE | BMX PARK FOR BUTUAN CITY YOUTHS has been a dream of the members of our local boardriding community for quite some time now. We have lots of potential skateboarders specifically the young ones, who only use the dangerous streets and car parks because there's no single proper place where they can practice their sports. They often build an obstacle ramp out of used woods and carry it whenever they have the need to use it.
We wish these kids will be given a chance to prove that their sports is not a community menace as most have thought because they're often seen in public places. Definitely not a safe place for them and the passersby too.
We look forward that this skate|BMX park will serve as a venue to unite our local youths, harness their skills even more and become a skate champ in the future.
What we want or wish for this proposed project are all possible if we have enough support on the monetary aspect. Because this1,498.20 sq.m. Skate and Bike park needs at least 5M to become real. PLEASE HELP US. Let's raise at least half if not the whole amount. SHARE & DONATE | SHARE or DONATE.
It’s been 2 weeks since we launch our campaign to Build A Skatepark For Butuan City Youths. Though we might get a little busy with our own personal activities, my co- campaigner (Ethel Works) and I makes sure that little by little we are having progress with the endeavor of having this dream project come true.
Also, we are working together with BMX bike enthusiasts of Butuan City to cater to more groups and also provide a safer venue and playing ground for our fellow BMX riders.
As an update:
1- we are now finalizing the design of the proposed skatepark, through out partner architect and skateboarder enthusiast Christopher Juanico Alico after which, will be cost estimated by Mr. Francis Yu. Both have offered there kind service for the dream project.
2- we are also making the management plan for the skatepark and linking up with key persons from the provincial and city government to help us with this plan. We will not mention names as to avoid political conflicts for the project. THIS IS FOR THE PEOPLE OF BUTUAN, and is by the people of Butuan.
3- to show our support and how much we really want this to happen, we have also launch 2 fundraisings via gogetfunding (linked below) and facebook fundraiser. Both are efficient ways of raising funds for our counterpart in the creation of this project. As of today we have a total of $133.00 (~ Php 7,200.00) and 6 backers from the Philippines and abroad. If you know anyone who is willing to share a bit for the project, please do not hesitate to tag them, Message them and share this to them. Any little help is a big help for this project.
4- lastly, we are having a collaboration with our local artists to design shirts and other wearables (caps, jackets,etc) to help us with the fundraising. We hope that by November we can sell these items to help boost our campaign. It will be a great gift idea for the coming Christmas season and all year round.
Also, we have noticed a lot of detractors and negative vibes from some of our commenters. We would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations just yet. This is going to be a rough battle for us to win, but rest assured we will do our best to make this happen. Instead of putting doubts in what we are doing right now, why not help out by sharing this, tagging family and friends for the fundraising, and spreading the word that butuan skatepark is coming. Aryt? 😬☺️☺️😬

Now what you can do is to keep re-sharing this to your friends and family here and abroad, and to have our voice be heard, one ripple, one wave at a time.
I am Toni, co-campaigner for this project. We are now working with an architect (pro-bono) to help us with the design and costing for the skate park. With this plan, it would be much easier for us to endorse the project to the local government and sponsors. We don't want to put the burden solely on them, and so to show our commitment to this activity, we are counter-parting its cost thru this GoGetFunding page. We are using all our available resources and efforts in making this dream project come true.
We are hoping for your support and a little donation can go a long way.
