NOW: ’Oconomwoc’s Batman’ leads successful charge to bring skate park to his community

OCONOMOWOC, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Skateboarding icon Tony Hawk considers his profession not only a sport, but an art form and lifestyle, and famously once said "if I can stand up when I'm 80, I'll be happy to cruise around on a skateboard." 

That sentiment is shared by Oconomowoc’s Craig Schiefelbein, a skateboarder in his 50's with an equal passion for the sport and giving back. He’s also an entrepreneur, philanthropist and generous caped crusader who's been one the leaders of an effort to build a skatepark in his hometown.

On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Mike Strehlow skated out to Oconomowoc to learn about Schiefelbein’s successful effort to rally his community.
