Tim and Monique Bamforth of Seashore Striders and Seashore Striders Event Productions Inc. recently donated $1,000 from their recent Labor Day Last Blast Prediction 5K Run to Epworth UMC Skate Project. The Bamforth family, which owns and manages the the nonprofit club and small business, is pleased to support such a worthwhile cause.
Epworth UMC Skate Project has a financial goal of $50,000 by Oct. 15 to fund the building of a concrete skate park on the grounds of Epworth United Methodist Church on Holland Glade Road in Rehoboth Beach. The entire project is being funded by donations from local individuals and businesses.
"Although our hometown area boasts incredibly beautiful beaches enjoyed by locals and tourists alike, our resort sorely needs more recreational activities for our local young people.The Epworth Skate Project park will be a welcome addition that will serve many youngsters, teens and adults in our community," said Tim Bamforth.
"Epworth is providing a home for a skate park, and the community is providing the financial support. We are elated by the community support. So many people see the benefit of this project," said Skate Project member Susan Selph.
