We are Tucson natives Caleb Guitierrez and Kyle Araishi and have both been enthusiastic skateboarders for most of our lives. Both of us have also been actively participating in the cultural community for many years. We have helped organize and been involved with MOCA Tucson, The Monsoon Collective, Think Tank event space, The Rialto theater, Night of the Living music festival, La Cocina, BICAS, and have added to the community in many other ways.
We have the unique experience and connections to know what the Tucson skating and roller sports community needs and the ability to help get those needs met. That’s why we are reaching out to you to help build a new covered skate park beneath the freeway underpass at Cushing Street and the I-10. We think many people could benefit from the creation of the skate park: skateboarders of all ages in Tucson and surrounding areas, parents, local businesses, and partners who could contribute to the construction of the park. We look forward to working with you to help make this project a reality!
We know there are hills left to climb before the Cushing Street Skate Park becomes a reality. We are willing to put in the work with the city government, local businesses, and the Tucson community to get this project built because it will be beneficial for us, everyone involved, and generations of Tucsonans to come.
Here are some steps we are taking now to lay the groundwork for Arizona’s first covered skate park and to achieve our fundraising goals to make this dream a reality.
Campaign Fundraising Goal: $40,000.
