Thanks to your generosity, we're steadily improving the gym and preparing to expand again. We've added some interim climbey stuff while planning out a bigger climbing wall, keep scrambling our scaffolding, and are looking forward to building out more space this summer.
We've got 2 weekly outreach classes with Seattle-based programs reaching at-risk youth and are teaching parkour at more expos and school event days than ever before! We're also sponsoring more scholarship students than we have at any other time in the past.
In short, we're doing great, and we're incredibly grateful for your support. Expect some big changes late this summer... the next update should be amazing!
If you look at our project page on GlobalGiving we have added an unreleased awesome new video showcasing the progress we've made on the new gym space and some of our most inspirational athletes doing what they do best :)
It's hard to encapsulate all that our organization does through a video like this, but we knew we had to get it out there at least as a thank you to the amazing community that has enabled us to get this far. That means you! Thanks for all your help - I can't wait to see what we're able to do in 2012!
Thanks to your incredible generosity during GlobalGiving's Bonus day in October and other donations throughout the holiday season, we're more than halfway to our $10k goal!
We're using the funds we've raised so far to improve the gym. Your contributions have funded covers for our big pit mats, a new water fountain, and some new obstacles. Right now, we're deep in the planning stages for a bouldering/climbing wall.
We're working on expanding our regular outreach program and are also running several school workshops this year.
Thanks again for all your help! 2012 is going to be an awesome year at Parkour Visions!
