The Kitchen Skate Park has been approved and is now an 501 (c)(3) non profit organization. Every single dollar you donate is tax deductable.  

We have 1 week to come up with the funds, or we will be forced to short our doors.  Please help us keep this skate park so we may continue to give kids a safe place to ride.

Brett Banasiewicz built the skate park 7 years ago, The doors officially opened June 25, 2011 to give back to the local community. Brett built the skate park with the winnings from his BMX career and his sponsorships. One year later, Brett suffered a traumatic brain injury that almost cost him his life and has stalled his BMX career.

Brett has lost all his sponsors, but not his dreams or his passion of giving back to the community. The skate park is now a non profit organization. If you have ideas or would like to donate to this non profit organization please contact the park.

Thank you again for all your support and prayers. It hasn't been an easy journey, but I am so thankful to still be here and be alive. Together we can make a positive impact in the community.

Thank You,

Brett Banasiewicz, and the entire Kitchen Skatepark Crew
