Mission & Purpose:
The MISSION of The Fort Wayne Indoor BMX & Skatepark
IS TO PROVIDE A SAFE, LEGAL, AND POSITIVE RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR MULTI-AGED LOCALS TO GROW THEIR BMX / SKATING SKILLS, WHILE BUILDING SELF-CONFIDENCE AND ENRICHING THEIR LIVES BY BECOMING A PART OF A UNIQUE COMMUNITY.
The purpose of The Fort Wayne Indoor’s Annual Block Party is to raise funds to support the mission of the Fort Wayne Indoor Bike & Skate Park. The Fort Wayne Indoor Bike & Skate Park (FWI) is a 501c(3) not for profit organization that serves the bike and skate community of Northeast Indiana. The FWI provides the youth of Fort Wayne the opportunity to build a supportive and inclusive local skating and biking community. The FWI supports this community by providing a custom built indoor facility complete with ramps, rails, and trick features designed and built by local skaters and trick riders.
The FWI goes beyond offering a legal, safe, and clean environment for self-expression through free style riding and skating by hosting competitions and riding events that mix skating, bike riding, and music. Rich Hoppe and Dan Butler’s lifelong dedication to the sports that they love has earned them friends across the industry. These friends and connections work at some of the largest manufacturers in the industry and they routinely support the FWI with prizes and gear to promote local competitions and events.
The Fort Wayne Indoor faces a challenge each and every year. A challenge that cannot be avoided. That challenge is warm weather. The target demographic for the FWI is youth. Once the weather warms and skateboarders and bicyclists can move their interests outdoors to ride for free, the regular revenue stream for the FWI dwindles.
The Fort Wayne Indoor’s Annual Block Party seeks to provide an alternative revenue stream for FWI through sponsorships and ticket sales to fund the park through the summer months. We also seek to use The Fort Wayne Indoor’s Annual Block Party to raise awareness of the Fort Wayne Indoors mission and purpose among potential corporate sponsors to help fund the park.
The Fort Wayne Indoor is supporting the youth of Fort Wayne’s skate, bike, and all wheeled sports in our community and we need your help
 
Thank You for your continued support!
