A Parkour Visions Summer!

Charge! A parkour clinic at Gasworks Park begins!

They say that summer will be starting in Seattle any day now, and that means long days and lots of parkour outside in the city's great parks. It also means summer camps at the gym your donations have helped build and continue to improve!

Last year, we expanded our gym by 4,000 square feet and built an amazing climbing wall. This year, we're working on program improvements and rolling out a new apprentice program that will allow some of our most dedicated students as well as parkour practitioners from all over to learn how to teach more people how to overcome obstacles.

New obstacles are showing up weekly, thanks to materials you helped us purchase and to staff you've enabled us to hire. This year is full of great potential, and we continue to be grateful to you and to the rest of our donors and volunteers who make it all possible.

Thank you for everything, and I hope to see you at the gym or at one of our classes outside!
