retraceuring steps

giving a community the means to build our own future, a better a more permanent future for PARKOUR & FREERUNNING practitioners

They did it!


On 8th Apr 2015 we successfully raised

£805

of £600 target
with

35 backers

in

56 days


New stretch target

WE DID IT! WE BEAT THE 600 WE NEED

IF WE CAN RAISE MORE IT WILL ADD VOLUME TO THE EQUIPMENT WE HAVE AND GIVE US THE ABILITY TO RUN BIGGER AND BETTER SESSIONS/CLASSES

Project aim

giving a community the means to change our own future by building the specific equipment needed to run youth classes in our hometown, train freely outdoors on equipment we own and prove to our local council it would be in their best interest to invest in our future and see these youth for what they really are rather than judge us for what we do

About the project

Medways parkour community is picking up steam!after MANY years of trying, our local council is finally listening to us and taking an interest in putting a select few through coaching qualifications, this would give us the freedom to run a successful and safe work shop for people to come and learn/harness their skills

but WE as practitioners are not going to sit around waiting, we are on the hunt!

we are in need of materials to build specialized equipment.

we are looking for wood to build vault boxes of various sizes

scaffolding and connectors to put together a portable climbing frame

and 2 heavy loading trolleys like you'd find in any B&Q/Wickes to transport them locally

through a basic membership this equipment will be made freely available with 24 hrs notice to anyone wishing to train (minimum number of participants required)

with this we can not only train freely outdoors on equipment we cannot be removed from, and it makes it a lot easier for us to demo what we are trying to progress to local authorities and possible sponsors. not to mention when we finally succeed in our goal to run indoor classes we will already have half of what we need to do so

anything you can give would be greatly appreciated, if anyone has any contacts to companies that may be willing to donate in exchange for sponsor promotions please don't hesitate to contact retraceuringsteps@gmail.comwww.facebook.com/retracueringsteps is our community page we will be participating in many sponsored and charity event in the coming months as well as frequent video updates from our practicioners!!!!!!!

so keep in touch get involved and support us in changing how medway sees us
