“Refreshing” the Binghampton neighborhood with Skatelife Memphis.

April 12, 2010

Mayor Wharton is "on board" with the Binghamton Skatepark

I am “on board” for getting our kids moving!  A month ago, I wrote  about the need for getting kids moving and endorsed our First Lady’s call to fight childhood obesity.  Well now it’s time to take action.

Join me in supporting the efforts of a grassroots group, Skatelife Memphis, that is a passionate about bringing healthy positive outlets to our inner city youth. They are working with the Binghampton Development Corporation to win a Pepsi “Refresh Everything” grant now through the end of April.  Let’s get our kids moving into a healthier future. Vote today to making a our city a better place for our kids by building a skatepark right by our new Greenline in Binghampton.

Please vote with me here every day through April 30:

Thank you!

    As the president of the Orange Mound Civic Organization, I would certainly love to see our children in Orange Mound have the same advantages as Binghampton. Great Idea!!!!!!

    I think that this proposal is a very good idea. Our children need to get from the computer, and get outdoors to play for more exercise.

    Thank you, Mayor Wharton. If I can be of service, please don’t hesitate to write or call me.

    Why not look at providing “mental exercise” and provide TUDOR SERVICES for the children. Prefer to see their playing monitored & protected thru their schools. Open park is inviting trouble.
