Help build a skateboard park in Ann Arbor (it’s free!)


There’s a move afoot to build a skateboard park in Ann Arbor ( If you’d like to help, you can vote in Pepsi’s “Refresh Everything contest where the A2 Skatepark is in the running for a $250,000 grant. They are currently in 20th place but that could change.

With YOUR help.

How? Simply text 104839 to Pepsi (73774) (standard text messaging rates apply.)

Alternatively, visit the “Refresh Everything” website and vote there.

You can vote once a day between now and December 31st. I’ve been doing it for the past few days. It only takes a second.

Here’s what the Friends of the Ann Arbor Skatepark organization is all about:

Our mission: To build a free, public, concrete skatepark as a permanent resource for residents in the Ann Arbor area. The skatepark will be designed and built by an experienced skatepark contractor, and include local skaters in the design process.

In partnership with the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, we are accepting donations to our design and build fund.

I’m just sayin’…
