Kip Moore was on hand at the opening of a new skatepark in Cincinnati, OH yesterday as part of his “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project.” The Warsaw Federal Skatepark, a project of the Lower Price Hill Neighborhood Enhancement Program, features a 35-foot-by-68-foot pump track, three grind rails and a Hubba skate ledge. Kids in attendance were surprised with free skateboards, helmets, knee pads, and backpacks filled with T-shirts and socks.
“I’m always searching for purpose in my life,” said Kip Moore. “I battle the feeling of if I’m doing enough with the small amount of time I have on this earth each day. I’m so blessed to get to do what I do, but I have always believed with those blessings come responsibility. Days like today give me that feeling of purpose. I get to see a direct impact in a needed community. I get to see the smiles on these kid’s faces and the positive impact it creates. There are so many things I wanna do in the inner cities and this is just the beginning.”
The “Comeback Kid Skatepark Project” is the first initiative of “Kip’s Kids Fund,” a donor-advised fund through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) focused on youth and teens. Other skatepark locations include Nashville, TN; Boston, MA; San Marcos, TX; Annapolis, MD. For more information and to make a donation visit here.
