The fourth annual Ryan Woodward Memorial Skate Event will be held Saturday at the Downtown Skate Park, located on St. Francis under Kellogg.
Skateboarders are invited to join the all-day activity, held in honor of Wichita teen Ryan Woodward, who was hit by a car and killed while walking to a local skate park in 2009.
Participants can compete for prizes in three categories: beginners for ages 12 and younger; intermediate for 13 to 17; and advanced for 18 and up.
The cost is $15; onsite registration is available. Raffle tickets will also be sold for $1 each. Proceeds will go to the Ryan Woodward Memorial Fund, which pays for maintenance and improvements to Wichita’s skate parks.
Never miss a local story.
The event is sponsored by City of Wichita Park and Recreation, Cox Communications, Simon Property Group and T-95.
