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 hope to be delivering more parkour for special education students at other area schools in the fall.
PK Pink serves Breast cancer survivors with an exercise and support meet-ups
Our PK Demo program allows for a brief introduction to parkour including a demonstration, group warm up and some low-key obstacle challenges. We have a demo at the National Night Out for Hune Spring Park, the Alexandris Police and Fire Department.
Our budget needs are relatively low, and with your support, we can largely cover our entire 2017 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.
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!
