Kip Moore Starting A Skateboarding Charity

(Radio.com) Kip Moore has been a skateboarder for much of his life. When he's not spending his time off surfing, he can be found at skateparks, as his Instagram account can attest.

Which is why it was fitting when yesterday (June 3), Moore announced the official plans for his Comeback Kid Skatepark Project. The charity project will include construction of a series of skateparks to benefit communities and, as a release noted, "comeback kids." It will begin construction in Nashville and Boston, plus San Marcos, Texas, and Annapolis, Md.

"What started off as a pipe dream of mine years ago has truly become a passion project," Moore said in a press release. "It came from me wanting to give kids in inner cities a safe outlet, where they can form the bonds I know can be made from having somewhere awesome to go and be a part of something they enjoy."

"Now when I sing it I think less about myself and more about the kids we are doing this for and how much I admire and respect them," he added. "We're starting with these four cities, but the plan is to keep growing this as far and wide as we can." Read more here.
