Donald “Coach” Cooley
As DGK’s Event Director, Don “Coach” Cooley has led #Savebyskateboaring since 2013 impacting the youth across the nation. He has hosted events in almost every major city in the U.S. partnering with the local Boys & Girls Clubs of America, YMCA, Salvation Army and other community organizations giving away complete skateboards and safety equipment.
In 2022 to continue his advocacy and givebacks for the youth across the country, Pushin’ Forward was founded with the vision that skateboarding teaches kids discipline, resilience, independence, and confidence which are essential life skills that prepare and mold them into productive members of our communities.
We facilitate custom skateboarding experiences for youth organizations, brands, and communities.
We provide the youth with free skateboards, helmets, skate lessons, and social-emotional learning opportunities.
We help communities, brands, and youth organizations connect with youth in innovative and creative ways.
We help young people keep pushin’ forward.
