The Roc City Park (RCP) will be a world-class, public cement skate park located in the heart of the city of Rochester.
That’s what a group of involved citizens and small business owners are doing. Together with the City of Rochester’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Human Services, as well as the New York State Department of Transportation, the Citizens Planning Group is working to build and maintain a skatepark for skateboarders and BMX riders.
McKay’s Photography is taking part in the Rally for Roc City Skatepark to raise money for a world class destination level skatepark in downtown Rochester. Much like a walk-a-thon or other fundraising effort, this sponsorship qualifies MP for the following:
* Minimum to skate/ride $100. Ride with and meet the pros and receive a t-shirt.
* VIP Access Minimum $500. Ride, meet, skate and have dinner with the pros and receive a hoodie.
* Rally hardest and raise the most in sponsorship dollars and ride in the Red Bull MXT vehicle with Red Bull Athlete Zered Basset on Sunday to skate your favorite skate spots with a professional photo shoot!
(MP is donating this qualification to ride with the pros to a younger, less fortunate rider!)
MP’s goal is to raise $500.
Please send my page to anyone who might like to donate!
The planned location of Roc City Skatepark is at the heart of the city, beneath the east side of the iconic and award winning Frederick Douglass/ Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge. Pending New York State Department of Transportation approval, this spot boasts plenty of room for varied skateboarding and BMX disciplines with areas on either side of the bridge for a more outdoor feel. Not to mention excellent shelter from the elements and our fair city’s unpredictable weather.
A concrete investment.
Nothing rides like permanent, concrete rails and ramps. But more importantly, a cast-in-place concrete skatepark is low-maintenance and long-lasting. Which is why nothing less will suffice for this project.
The Rally for the Roc City Skatepark will feature an indoor and outdoor skateboarding and bmx biking experience, exhibitions by pro skateboarders, contests, physical activities in which children can participate, family activities, music, delicious food, a parent oasis area, silent auction and VIP event. The Rally for Roc City Skatepark is being hosted by the Friends of the Roc City Skatepark and is a fundraising event for the planned skatepark in the City of Rochester.
Please help McKay’s Photography raise money for this much needed project in Rochester!
