A leader even after an unfortunate end

My son, Prescott Lee Goodman, 15, was a fearless and passionate bike rider who loved nothing more than to be a leader in his sport. Always in his T-shirt and jeans, you would find him working on his next bike stunt, doing repetitive moves until he got it “just right”. On June 11, 2012, while attempting to cross Bardstown Rd., Prescott’s bicycle made contact with a moving vehicle tragically ending his precious life.

As a family who fostered his interests, we want nothing more than to give to the other children in our community who share those same interests. There are so many kids in our community that do not fit the mold of baseball, football, basketball, etc. but are great kids. This park would give them a place to channel energy that could potentially shift any negative behavior to more positive choices.
