About Pushin' Forward Founded by DGK's Don "Coach" Cooley in 2013 with the creation of #Savebyskateboaring with DGK. He has hosted events in almost every major city in the U.S. partnering with the local Boys & Girls Clubs of America giving away complete skateboards and safety equipment. In 2022 to continue his advocacy and givebacks for the youth across the country, Pushin’ Forward was created 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.
