Cowtown S.K.A.T.E. ORG

Knows It's Fun to do Good!

Cowtown S.K.A.T.E. is a non-profit dedicated to the support, enhancement and preservation of skateboarding and community.

Together with support from the community Cowtown S.K.A.T.E. provides skateboards, safe places to skate, and events to keep skateboarders engaged in something positive physically, mentally, and socially.

The Skateboard Angel Program is one of many out-reach programs Cowtown participates to meet the needs of our community. Our goal is to give away 500+ complete skateboards to deserving kids in the foster system and throughout our community. Becoming a Skateboard Angel gives you the opportunity to gift a quality new complete, at a drastically discounted price to one of these amazing kids. The Skateboard Angel program will be working with many organizations this Holiday Season and @skateafterschool is the beneficiary of the first 250 completes.

Cowtown Skateboards, established in 1997, is skateboarder owned and operated. Over the past two decades, Cowtown has nurtured the Arizona skate scene and culture growing to be the hub of skateboarding in the southwest. The unique shop experience, a sub culture all it’s own, along with skateboarders, artists, musicians and multigenerational loyal customers come together to make Cowtown the brand you see today. Representing only the finest brands with passion, honesty and integrity has earned Cowtown the reputation of being the premiere skateboard shop in Phoenix, Arizona.

Skateboarding events are Cowtown’s livelihood. We love bringing skateboarders together for good times! Cowtown has a regular event schedule encapsulating all of the industry’s best. Cowtown is also home of the annual PHXAM Contest which brings skateboarders from around the globe to Phoenix, Arizona to compete. PHXAM is a physical extension of the Cowtown culture allowing us to extend our skateboarding passion beyond our Arizona home, and to the world.




The Discount Tire Team at Val Vista Lakes

Knows It's Fun to do Good!

The Discount Tire team at Mesa’s Val Vista Lakes was recently "caught in the act" of going above and beyond to serve their customers. On Friday 4/30, the FatCats Team was performing our Free Popcorn Giveaway. A family was en route to FatCats when they had a tire blowout. They wouldn't be able to make it to the Free Popcorn Giveaway so the Discount Tire Team saw the opportunity to go above and beyond so a team member crossed heavy traffic in 104 degree heat to acquire bags of FatCats Popcorn and then walked it back to their customers. FatCats wants to recognize the outstanding customer service and their Doing Good in our community. Great job!
