We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Unfortunately we have another rainy Wednesday, so PK Silver will not meet today, November 30.
As a reminder, PK Silver on Mondays at Hume Spring Park will not meet during the winter. Beginning December 7, we will only meet on Wednesdays at Monarca in Flight, 3431-F Carlin Springs Road, Falls Church, VA 22041. When the weather cooperates, we will train part or all of our class outdoors in the parking lot, so please dress in layers for the weather. Because we will have the indoor space, we can just move indoors if needed.
Sorry to disappoint, but due to a bitter cold wind that is blowing, there will be NO PK Silver tomorrow, Monday, November 21st at Hume Spring Park. Stay warm! Also, no PK Silver on Wednesday, November 23rd as per the calendar. We wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
**EXCITING NEWS UPDATE!** PKMove has been awarded a Community Matching Fund Grant from Alexandria RPCA. We will be offering city-wide, free-to-the-public parkour lessons at parks events for the next three years! But to do this we need YOUR help! We have to raise $5000 and are looking for sponsors!
Do you want to build positive public perception of parkour Do you want to bring play to underserved neighborhoods? Is encouraging movement education for all, including play spaces accessible to special populations of various ages and abilities something you want to support? Please join our effort. We have seven sponsorship levels, but any amount appreciated. Contact us at email@example.com for more details. (Photo from The Movement Creative, who design and build the pop-up playground)
Give yourself or someone you love the gift of health and wellness this holiday season. Register now for our NEW PK Pink class by visiting www.pkmove.org Parkour for the breast cancer survivor, PK Pink is both fun and pragmatic. While training ways to overcome everyday obstacles in this low-impact obstacle course class, participants:
- increase range of motion in effected limbs
- regain physical strength and build endurance
- increase creativity, memory function, and mind-body coordination
- use positive “self talk” and improve body image
- become part of a supportive community
- Reconnect with the natural environment
If your doctor has cleared you to resume recreational fitness activities, celebrate with some fun and practical movement. Participants must have completed their treatment and physical therapy. Partners, friends, and family are also welcome to attend if in company of participating survivor. (This is NOT a child-focused parkour class, however kids 13+ are welcome with survivor/parent participant.) Survivors of gynecological and prostate cancer are also encouraged to enroll.
PK Pink Saturday classes will begin on January 7, 2017, 10-11:15am, at Nativity Lutheran Church, 1300 Collingwood Road, Alexandria, VA 22308. First class free. Drop in $25. Four classes for $80.

Due to rain, we are cancelling today’s PK Silver class today at Ft. Ward.
