the project

The RollinBuckeyez Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit whose primary mission is to provide high quality artistic and athletic activities and services that respond to the changing needs of our community.

Our Turning Wheels program, helps  families incorporate artistic and athletic activities into their lives. We’ve taught over 500 children the art of skating and had to turn down many more becuase we didn’t the supplies we needed or the room to store them. With a 20ft step van we would have the capacity to store at least 100 skates safely along with the ability to transport them across the city. We’ve quickly outgrown our current 8 ft trailer in the past 3-4 months due to demand. Help us make our Turning Wheels program on the road so we can teach at recreation centers, schools and community events across the city. 

 

the steps

purchase and retrofit a P30 Step Van (aka box truck)

create calendar of events with partner organizations 

bring our Turning Wheels pop up roller rink to hundreds of kids and families across the Land!!!

why we're doing it

Skating is personal for me, teaching this art form gives me the opportunity to give back and to occupy vacant spaces and fill them with hope and energy!

From the evolution in the early 1700’s, roller skating has always been one of the safest and healthiest forms of exercise and recreation for all ages. If it’s just to have a great time, listen to music, or meeting new people; what a great way to do so while burning calories.
