In July of 2011 Alexandria "Alix" Rice, was longboarding home when struck and killed by a drunk driver. Alix loved her longboard "Rupert". She also loved her friends. She would do almost anything for them. It was common to find that Alix had gone out of her way to turn a friends awful day around.
Due to her extreme kindness and selflessness, a skatepark is being erected in her name. The Alix Rice Peace Park Foundation was formed in August, 2012. It is a 501c3 Not-for-profit company whose sole purpose is to make this dream a reality. It will be an all concrete California style skatepark. So even longboarders can enjoy its existence.We are currently working with a local municipality.
