PHOENIX, March 21, 2023 (Newswire.com) - You don't have to be in the skateboarding scene to know and love the legend Tony Hawk, a.k.a. the Birdman. Not only is he the most accomplished American professional skateboarder, but he is an innovator, entrepreneur, and all-around good guy. He's won six gold medals for skateboarding in the ESPN X-Games and is still the only skateboarder to pull off a 900 in competition. He invented many tricks but retired from competition in 1999 and remains active in promoting the sport, his products (including Birdhouse, a skateboard and accessories manufacturer), and his charity—The Skatepark Project. What keeps Hawk so relevant after almost 40 years in the public eye? "I never quit. That's my only secret," he says.
Now, it's time to roll with the legend. Colossal Management is stoked to announce a legendary partnership with Hawk to raise awareness and donations for The Skatepark Project. Colossal is changing the face of professional fundraising by running online competitions that benefit many different people.
In this case, there will be two winners. A "People's Choice," where one fan favorite will capture the hearts of the public and be voted the Skatepark Hero of 2023, obtaining a once-in-a-lifetime prize including $10,000 and a skate session with Tony himself. And if that isn't exciting enough, one talented skater will be deemed "Tony's Pick," where Hawk will choose one skater with the most creative boardslide and/or lipslide. All entrants will have the opportunity to work on and perfect these tricks throughout the Competition.
Tony Hawk's Skatepark Hero will be operated by Colossal as part of a fundraising campaign on behalf of DTCare. Donations from votes cast during the Competition will go directly to DTCare, which will then grant the donations to The Skatepark Project, minus Competition fees and costs, to help underserved communities create safe and inclusive public skateparks for youth. Colossal is proud to support this organization in their mission to issue grants to low-income communities by building quality public skateparks and providing guidance to city officials, parents, and children.
"Skateboarding has more depth than just sport. It's about inclusivity, creativity, and community," Hawk says.
