Hardkore Parkour is helping Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Nevada get the word out about the need for more male mentors by supporting its Men in Mentoring initiative. The event will be held at HKPK on Sunday, May 19th from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm at 3680 North 5th Street, Suite #130, North Las Vegas, NV, 89032.
Men in Mentoring is a male centered program that provides support for current mentors and recruits new Bigs. It’s an opportunity for men of all ages to come together to encourage and support young men facing adversity. “80% of the referrals that we receive are for boys in need of Big Brothers,” states Athena Gould, Program Manager, “We’ve got some really great kids that simply need a positive male role model to spend time with them. We are so excited that HKPK and Canes are helping us to get the word out!”
Parkour is the non-competitive sport originating in France of traversing mainly urban landscapes through running, climbing, jumping, vaulting, rolling and other physical movements using the most efficient way possible.
Event participants can conquer customized obstacle courses, jump in foam pits and even walk on walls. “We are excited to participate in such a great event to promote a great cause,” states Rich Hopkins, Marketing Director at HKPK and former Big Brother. “This will be a fun event for current Big & Littles in the program, as well as a chance for new members to join the program!”
Raising Cane’s will be providing their tasty Chicken Fingers, Texas Toast, and Cole Slaw for the hungry participants. Special thanks to Justin Micatrotto, Chief Marketing Officer of Raising Cane’s for your support
