Moving to a new project page

Hi Everyone,

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!

We've opened our new gym!

Scaffolding in the new space!
Scaffolding in the new space!

We've finally found new space! Our new address is 1210 W Nickerson St, Seattle, WA 98119. Thanks to donations to our community, we were able to meet most of the upfront costs and are deep into the building process!

But we still need your help... there's lots of stuff to build and lots of people to reach!

Please keep the donations coming, and if you're in Seattle, stop by to see our space!

Tax Day update!

Thanks, donors, on behalf of Parkour Visions gym. We wish you a happy tax day, especially with writeoffs your donations have provided :)

We've only received a few donations from the Global Giving community, but our efforts have inspired a number of private donations. We've been using the funds to build more equipment for classes and outreach programs, to continue our outreach efforts, and to begin securing material for a new facility.

Our outreach program has seen a number of changes in curriculum and is still going strong as we reach at-risk youth in Seattle shelters and programs. We've begun offering scholarships to our lower income students, and have been able to help 3 families who cannot afford our memberships get access to the benefits of parkour classes.

We've been on the hunt for new space, and have been figuring out ways to be more attractive to prospective landlords. The private donations we have received have helped that effort tremendously.

Watch this space for more updates, and thank you for your help so far.
