New Community Class in Edmonds City Park
Say hello to our new weekly community class at Edmonds City Park with Coach Kanton! Just like our Sunday classes this one is donation based too. So don’t let money be a barrier! One third of all proceeds will go towards donations to scholarships, subsidized after-school programs and to YouthCare to support homeless youth in Seattle. Class is every Saturday from 1:30pm to 3pm (in August, class is only Aug 3 and 10, not 17, 24 and 31). Kanton has been practicing Parkour since 2009 and loves to share his passion with the community! Want to find out more about Kanton? Here’s a link to his bio. Check out our website for a complete schedule of our weekly community classes.
