combining our efforts with those of the des moines regional skatepark committee and subsect skateshop, we hope to raise a substantial amount for construction of the park, one that aims to be the largest outdoor park in the united states. as such we are planning and brainstorming ways to make shove it! a fundraiser unlike any other.
