Thank you so much for your contribution! With your help you will be providing 50 underprivileged youth the chance to dream through their bodies and learn tools of empowerment through movement.
Right now, I’m in process of applying for my visa to India, and then buying the plane ticket!
I’m very excited for this opportunity - to provide others with the life lessons I learned through parkour: to never give up, to practice patience, to believe in myself. Parkour taught me to have power in making choices: parkour is about choosing and discovering one’s own path.
While I am in India, I will be keeping a Youtube vlog of the trip and send you updates of the trip! I will be travelling to India September 2013 and will live in Mumbai for the month. (To get updates on the vlog, subscribe to my Youtube channel http://youtube.com/cstormpk )
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 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!
