Parkour Visions is growing!

New empty warehouse space to fill
New empty warehouse space to fill

Big news! We've successfully inherited the warehouse space next door to our Seattle location and are currently expanding the gym to a full 10,000sq ft! The plan is to build like mad in order to bring the walls down for the big reveal before the National Parkour Summit we're hosting on July 20th-22nd.

Due to popular demand and your awesome support, a new rock climbing wall designed by Vertical World will be the first thing up in the new space. The next big addition will be what we're calling The Tower which is a two story structure sitting right in the middle of everything with a parents viewing pavilion up top, and rooms for stretching, massage/PT services, and an office below. We'll of course be covering The Tower with interesting climbing challenges, weird stairs, and holes to jump through all around it - we might even be able to sneak a fireman's pole in for quick exiting :) 

The rock wall and a portion of the flooring is already paid for by your support and we'll be conducting some more fundraising over the next month as we try and build out the rest. We're extremely excited to expand into this new space and fill it with more awesome things for kids and adults to play on, thank you so much for your continued support in making that happen :) 

Oh and if you get this in time, today is a GlobalGiving Bonus Day - tell your friends, all donations matched at 40% !

All the best,

Tyson Cecka
