RideMKE has been established as a non-profit organization committed to the development of sustainable concrete skateparks within Milwaukee County. 100% of our efforts go directly to constructing FREE public skateparks within the Milwaukee community. Our plan is to organize a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) effort and build new structures as the money becomes available. We are always looking for more community involvement, so if you are looking to donate some of your time to help out please contact us.

Good First Week
Well our first week of being a legitimate non-profit organization has come and gone. Have to say that we are really optimistic about the direction everything is going and the response that we are getting from others in the community. Big thanks to Sky High and Bigfoot Bike & Skate for spreading the word to all their friends about what we are trying to accomplish. We have started reaching out to various companies about donations/products for fundraising and have been getting positive results on that front also. Some different fundraising ideas have been thrown around and we are hoping to have a large fundraising event within the next couple of weeks. By the end of this week we plan to have some donation jars spread around town in some key locations to start collecting spare change, remember every penny will help to get us closer to our goal. In the meantime, we always have the "Donate" button if you can spare a few bucks to help out. If you would like to get involved email us at rideMKE@gmail.com or "Like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @rideMKE
