ABOUT TONY HAWK
American professional skateboarder Tony Hawk made history for completing the first documented 900 (900 degree aerial spin). He is widely considered to be one of the most successful and influential pioneers of modern vertical skateboarding. Throughout his career, he has made numerous appearances in films, other media and his own series of licensed video games. He has also been involved in various philanthropic activities, including his own Tony Hawk Foundation that helps to build skateparks in underprivileged areas. The Tony Hawk Foundation seeks to foster lasting improvements in society, with an emphasis on supporting and empowering youth. Since 2002, the Tony Hawk Foundation has awarded 512 grants worth over $4 million to help build free, public skateparks across the U.S.
ABOUT THE TONY HAWK FOUNDATION
A charitable, non-profit organization, the Tony Hawk Foundation was established in 2002 by its namesake, professional skateboarder Tony Hawk, to promote and provide funds for high-quality public skateparks in low-income areas throughout the United States—with an emphasis on the word “quality.” Since then, the Foundation has awarded over $4-million to 512 communities in all 50 states. The Foundation focuses on working with local officials and grassroots, community-based organizations that plan to hire designers and contractors with strong experience designing and building skateparks.
