Gateway For the kids Foundation
Organized by: Ryan Neptune
Gateway Parks Founded in 2010 is a now non profit organization whoms primary goal is to reach disadvantaged and at risk youth at a time of the year where most urban communities leave kids with nothing to do. Where Idle hands can be the Devils workshop. Our goal is getting kids and families to come together and doing an activity that promotes healthy active lifestyles. Gateway parks offers a winter activites for free or at an extremely low cost in a unique urban environment. Partnering with city parks and recreation departments to utilize city parks where these amazing assets are rarely utilized during the winter months. We provide snow tubing activities that allow free skiing and snowboard rentals and lessons to kids whom would never have the opportunity to participate. Founded by a group of professional athelets this program was established as a give back to the community and industry that has given so much to a select few. We are a group comprised of athelets such as the first ever US Snowboard Champion (SBX) and supported by the Federation of International Skiing and Snowboarding or (FIS) the world wide governing body whom oversees and regulates Olympic venues and World Cup events. Together with the Bring the Children to the Snow campaign, Gateway parks hopes to give minority and disadvantage youth and outlet to express themselves and in many cases become professional athelets when this opportunity would have never been possible before. Please help Gateway Parks grow into more cities and a city near you. Gateway Parks has helped to develope its parks so far in Denver Co., Lansing, MI., Rockford, IL., Eagle, ID., and Milwaukee, WI. We are looking to expand our footprint into NY, IA, MN, MA, UT, NYC, Toronto and many many more communities inside the snowbelt. We have done extensive research and are the most qualified diverse skilled group to be able to bring his to your community. Please donate to this worth while cause so we can take kids from never ever situations to amazing new hieghts and focus.
