Join Mayor Michael A. Nutter today from 5:00 - 8:00 PM at the Philly Pumptrack to engage our teens in the great outdoors and support Safe Summers in Philadelphia. The Pumptrack will be open to all, and jump rope events will be held in the adjacent tennis courts.
Please take a moment and read this great article about the Philly Pumptrack by Julian Hamer of Philadelphia Neighborhoods. There is also a video where you get to meet some of our regular volunteers! Thank you Ray Louder, Ahmad, Ibrahim, and Kevin!
The Friends of the Philly Pumptrack would like to share this wonderful video with you.
Nathanial Bartholomew, famed Director of "Make Every Second Count" (the first 3D mountain bike movie), filmed this while visiting the Philly Pumptrack with his boys on the same day that the Cabot Creamery Cooperative honored the Philly Pumptrack with a volunteer appreciation day. Earlier that day, Kenn, Ms. Lucinda Hudson, Ed Fagan and the Cabot Co-Op representatives were on air with Marilyn Russell #MarilynRussell of 95.7 WBEN-FM, and they sent out the BEN FM Ice Cream truck.
Thanks for the great video Nat! We hope you and the family can make it down to see us again soon.
Thanks to all the sponsors and volunteers that make the Philly Pumptrack a reality.
