OUR FOUNDER 

 
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.
