The St. Paul BMX & Skatepark Initiative has gained a little more ground. We Have now raised over 10,000$ through personal donations and a few fundraisers like the Garage Sale and the BBQ's.
The next step is to gain some major donors to donate but also sit on the committee to help us push ahead and try and get a location and design approved. Attached and below is our Donation Letter and the tier level approach for donations.
Please view the presentation below and share with as many people as you can. Alternatively drop us a line at STPSK8@gmail.com on potential donors you think would be good to approach.

Well, its been a full year since we sold our first Strider and it's probably not a coincidence that the Anniversary of Bear's BMX & BS falls so close to MikeyBear's Birthday May 15th.
So to celebrate and remember.... Bear's Birthday Bash is this weekend! This will be the first annual Bear's Bday Bash. To celebrate, Bear's BMX & BS will be holding a storewide sale with 1/2 of all proceeds being donated directly to the St. Paul BMX & Skatepark Initiative. Stop in Saturday May 16th to enjoy some good tunes, snacks and refreshments and even better sale prices. More importantly help us help St. Paul build a Mighty Fine Skatepark.
As promised we will be announcing the Colouring Contest Winners sometime this weekend! Still two days to get your colouring done!!

Please plan to attend the first general meeting in regards to design and layout of a new skatepark for our town and community. This will be a meeting hosted by professionals from NEWLINE Skateparks and is open to the public. All ages are welcome, All interested please attend. The intent is to inform and educate the community about the necessary steps in order to successfully build a BMX and skatepark for the town of St Paul. The other intent is to gather feedback from local skaters and BMXers in regards to desired layout and flow of a new park. Please plan to attend January 28th. The meeting has been scheduled for January 28th at 7PM at the CPAC Conference Centre on main street right next to Subway.
The Skate Park has been given the green light to start the official fundraising in order to build a new BMX and Skatepark here in St. Paul. Thanks to the Town of St. Paul, Mr. G Ward, and Mr. R. Boisvert, we are now poised to receive funding with tax receipts for all donations. On top of a very generous monetary donation, The Town has also Committed to support with equipment and services to help construct the Park.
The Initiative still requires some major sponsors and we will be revealing the tiered level approach to recognizing the donors on the skatepark build for the life of the park. Please continue to donate and LIKE the facebook page in the link below. Feel free to share this with any potential donors in our community.
If you have any suggestions for potential donors or you would like to be a part of this initiative please contact the STPSK8 park committee at this email address STPSK8@gmail.com.
The Skate Park Initiative for St. Paul has started to take off in the right direction. Recent advancements include a preliminary meeting between our Town and Newline Skate parks. Since that meeting Newline has submitted back to the town and myself, a first draft proposal with some model samplings, examples of other parks, and detailed execution steps/stages required to complete the project.
The Stage we are at now requires more community involvement. Over the next few months it will be important to gather some key members as well as key donors to form a committee that will stick handle the initiative.
We are looking for some large donations. These large donations will be tax deductible through the town of St. Paul. If you have any suggestions for whom these key supporters will be or want to be one yourself Please contact myself or Kirk at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime please continue to post and share your thoughts on the Facebook page for the skatepark. SPSK8PRK

The ultimate goal of Bears BMX & BS is to save lives. It is the purpose driving the entire concept of taking it outside. Physical activity promotes mental health. Being active in something you like fends off depression. Being around people you admire creates positive change. Bear's BMX & BS wants to help all the children of the world, however we know we cant do that so we are starting with the ones in our community. Stay tuned for more on giving back. Bear's proudly supports the following charities. You can contact us anytime with a charity you believe could benefit from Bear's Gives Back!
