PK Silver, our parkour class for people over 50, got a mention in IDEA Fitness Magazine, June 2017 edition.
It’s that time of year for requests of donations from many worthy charities. Please consider making a donation to PK Move for Spring2Action, Alexandria Virginia’s Day of giving. We are raising $5000 for an RPCA Community Matching Fund Grant to purchase a pop-up parkour playground AND offer three years of free-to-the-public parkour lessons. To help fund the playground project, please donate below. Any amount is greatly appreciated!

PK is an abbreviation for the word parkour. Hence our name, PK Move. Parkour is a French word which could be translated as “obstacle course running.” Our definition? Parkour is moving through your environment in a fluid, efficient manner. This month, we are telling you why we love parkour. Listen to PK Silver participant Colin. He says, “This is fun. It’s outdoors. And it’s good for you.”
**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)
