Our longtime partner, Concrete Safaris, a not-for-profit organization that promotes physical activity and environmental awareness for students, is hosting its annual JungleGym!

JungleGym is a 2-block long, 20-obstacle challenge for children and their families, as well as an active living fair, on 3rd Ave. between 115th and 117th Street. We had a lot of fun volunteering at last year's JungleGym! We also recently held a workshop with students to develop the obstacle course for this year's JungleGym. Our volunteers led the workshop, working with students to build a scale model of the event site. We are absolutely excited to see the design come to life!

JungleGym will be held  on Saturday, June 24. There will be two shifts: 8 AM to 1 PM and noon to 6 PM. Concrete Safaris is looking for volunteers to help with the building and dismantling of obstacles, safety management along the obstacle course as well as event registration.
