Freedom for all to skate and have fun.

 

SkateFree is an organization committed to promoting the sport of skateboarding to the youth community as a safe and healthy form of physical activity. We see skateboarding as an alternative sport for at-risk children from low-income environments and kids all over the city of Miami. We are dedicated to sharing positivity of skateboarding in the city of Miami and abroad. 

Our main goal is to build safe and free skateboard facilities in underserved areas of our community that are centrally located and accessible from public transit.  

Skate Free is an organization committed to helping young boys and girls gain confidence and life skills through skateboarding as well as offering them the facilities to build and grow. 

All donations we receive support the construction of world-class skate facilities in our area, skateboard outreach and learning programs and providing equipment to low-income children who cannot afford their own.
