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!
We wanted to let you know that we are closing this project page down and using http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/parkour-gym/ for our fundraising towards the new gym.
We're still running our regular outreach programs and are offering scholarships for students, but we're not fundraising for them in particular right now. Everything now comes out of one general fund that supports all of the programs we run with the target of of introducing parkour to 500 at-risk kids each year.
Thanks for your support! I hope that you'll follow the new project as well to stay up to date with how our new facility is coming along!
