Due to a dangerously high heat index this week, there will be no PK Silver class on Tuesday, July 26 at Hume Springs. We are also cancelling class for Wednesday, July 27 At Ft. Ward. Seniors: please find a place to play inside, stay hydrated, and keep cool! Hope to see you next week!
We need your support! At PK Move, we offer low-cost functional fitness sessions to people who might normally be unable to take such a class due to financial, physical, mental, or other restraints. We are passionate about our parkour-based program which aims to build strength of body and mind, improve balance, flexibly and coordination, reconnect our participants with nature, and increase their confidence and creativity in a supportive environment. We’ve only been active in Alexandria for three months, yet so far, through community partnerships, we have been able to offer the following programs:
Two PK Silver classes per week (FUNctional fitness classes for seniors) in partnership with the City of Alexandria
Our PK School program assisted with parkour classes at the Wellness Day event at GWMS and we will be delivering more parkour to other area schools in the fall
PK Pink serves Breast cancer survivors with an exercise and support meet-ups
Money-wise, our budgetary needs are relatively low, and with your support, we can largely cover our program costs with our August 27th “PKMove Kick-Off” fundraising event. Currently, we are a team of all-volunteer coaches; our biggest expenses are insurance as well as specialized coach training which will allow us to bring the transformative power of parkour to populations with specialized needs, such as local pediatric cancer patients.
For $30 per person, we’re offering you a night out on the town with two drinks (beer/wine/soft drinks), delicious food, live music from the Delaney Hall Band, an art exhibit, and more! We only need 200 friends to purchase tickets and join us for a FUN night out. This will help us meet our budget, allowing us to continue to share the transformative power of parkour with those in our community who would benefit the most. Please join us to build a healthier, stronger Alexandria. Purchase your tickets today and share with friends and bring a group. We are very grateful and thank you for your support!

We are pleased to announce that PKMove is officially partnered with the City of Alexandria through the Department of Recreation, Parks & Cultural Activities to offer PK Silver, a parkour-based fitness program for seniors 55+!
PK Move had a photo shoot today with Altabs Photography. We are preparing for the parkour art exhibit which will be at St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub from August 15th through September 5th. The exhibit, part of PK Move’s Kick-Off Party and fundraising event, features parkour movement and balances by PK Move students, friends, and coaches. It is meant to demonstrate our class activities and highlight the joy anyone can experience through play and movement. The show is being shot and curated by our own Mark Albert C. Altabano, a wonderful photographer, parkour fan, and supporter of PKMove. He has generously donated all his time and talent to this project. A huge shout out to Altabs Photography! Thank you! PS Because we know you worry: no Royal Doulton was harmed during today’s photo session.
