Thank You Movement Community!

As you might have noticed from the countless updates over the past 2 months, we recently held a big crowdfunder for our new gym in Boulder. Our goal was to raise $20,000 for new equipment so that we could really push our new gym over the top. In the end, our community came through in a massive way, proving once again that it is one of the best in the world. When our campaign finished it was the most successful Parkour campaign in Indiegogo’s history, both by number of contributors and number of dollars raised. Read below for some additional highlights for the campaign:

  • $24,634 raised
  • 170 contributors from 5 countries and 24 states
  • Special shout out to Marcell Levi from Arizona, the biggest contributor of all. Marcell’s contribution was also the one that pushed our campaign total over $20,000 (Indiegogo contributions plus in person contributions).
  • Special shout out to Colin Pistell from North Carolina whose second contribution pushed our IGG total over $20,000.

THANK YOU so incredibly much to everyone who shared & contributed to our fundraiser. The support we’ve gotten from the local, national, and even international movement community is amazing. Also, special thanks to all of our students, staff, and volunteers in Boulder who have supported us over the years. We couldn’t have done this without you all.
