For “Wild in the Streets 2012”, Emerica has partnered with Power House Productions to benefit RideIt Sculpture Park, a neighborhood revitalization project. Power House Productions is a nonprofit organization, whose current project is to develop a do-it-yourself style skatepark built by skateboarders. The goal of this project is to create a space where neighborhood kids and adults can meet, play, exercise and more.
Boards for Bros is a group of skateboarders who are dedicated to collecting and refurbishing skateboards, which are then redistributed back into communities where kids can not afford their own. The beneficiaries of the 2012 Emerica/Boards for Bros efforts will be the children of the Power House neighborhood. Visit the event website to find out how to donate old completes, decks, trucks and wheels to Boards for Bros. Those who donate will receive a same-day 10 percent discount on Emerica products.
One of the shops that is accepting donations for Boards for Bros is Modern Skate & Surf. To celebrate National Go Skateboarding Day on June 21, Modern Skate Park is also offering free skateboarding all day. Located in Royal Oak, Michigan, Modern Skate is home to a world-class indoor riding facility. The 80,000 sq. foot park was designed and constructed by the world-known skatepark builders, Team Pain. Membership packages, private and walk-in lessons, protective gear rental and park rental packages are available. Modern Skate was rated no.1 best skatepark by Best of Real Detroit in 2012.
