Even legendary skateboard icon Tony Hawk is behind the Perham skate and bike park.

Well, at least his foundation is. On December 8, the Tony Hawk Foundation Board of Directors decided to award the Perham skate and bike park project a $5,000 grant.


The five grand, added to $21,376.11 in local pledges collected and $2,500 in uncollected local pledges brings the skatepark group up to a total of $28,876.11. This is nearly halfway to their goal of $60,000.
