Fundraisers & Donations

Jack James High School Outdoor Fitness Park

Jack James High School is raising funds for the creation of an outdoor fitness park!

The park will be open to both Jack James students and the surrounding community, enabling us to significantly augment PE options at our school as well as provide our neighbours with a free fitness resource to help everyone stay healthy and active no matter their family budget. We would be the first public high school in Calgary to install an outdoor fitness park as part of our school program and community engagement vision. We have visited every outdoor fitness park in Calgary to gather ideas, vendors, and test the equipment to make sure that Jack James will have the best outdoor fitness park in the city!

The funding will be used to prepare the site, insert an approved surface, and purchase and install the equipment.

Funding support for this project can be made through the Parks Foundation Calgary at https://app.etapestry.com/onli...

Parks Foundation partners with schools to support the development of new and valued public spaces by awarding grants and providing on-going guidance throughout the duration of every project.  Donations for which e-mail information has been provided will receive a tax receipt from Parks Foundation, Calgary as an agent of the City of Calgary.
