Kip Moore was on hand at the opening of a new skatepark in Cincinnati on Wednesday (July 27) as part of his Comeback Kid Skatepark Project.

The Warsaw Federal Skatepark, a project of the Lower Price Hill Neighborhood Enhancement Program, features a 35-foot-by-68-foot pump track, three grind rails and a Hubba skate ledge. Kids in attendance were surprised with free skateboards, helmets, knee pads, and backpacks filled with T-shirts and socks.

“I’m always searching for purpose in my life,” said Moore. “I battle the feeling of if I’m doing enough with the small amount of time I have on this earth each day. I’m so blessed to get to do what I do, but I have always believed with those blessings come responsibility. Days like today give me that feeling of purpose. I get to see a direct impact in a needed community. I get to see the smiles on these kid’s faces and the positive impact it creates. There are so many things I wanna do in the inner cities and this is just the beginning.”

The Comeback Kid Skatepark Project is the first initiative of Kip’s Kids Fund, a donor-advised fund through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee focused on youth and teens.

Other skatepark locations include Nashville; Boston; San Marcos, Texas; and Annapolis, Maryland.
