Downey, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2012
Honda World Downey, a dealership located in the Los Angeles area, recently donated $2500 to buy portable skateboard ramps and rails that will benefit Downey’s youth. Honda World split the cost with ASPIRE, an after-school program jointly operated by the city of Downey, who also donated $2,500. This money will go to buying a Park on a Cart System, which has ramps and obstacles for both skateboarders and bicyclists.
The city’s Parks and Recreation Department will buy the portable ramp from Fresh Park, a skateboard company that sells their equipment to YMCA’s, civic groups and military bases around the world. As an added bonus, the ramps and rails can be easily opened and closed with only one or two people, and can be broken down to fit inside a bag.
Along with providing something fun and interactive for local Downey youth to participate in, city officials also hope that it promotes a healthy and active lifestyle. The children can enjoy the skateboard equipment both at city events and afterschool programs. Mayor Roger Brossmer presented the commendation to Jeffrey Hodge, the President of Honda World Downey, at the City Council a couple weeks ago.
