Hawaii Parkour is an educational fitness organization, dedicated to sharing the healthy movement and risk-assement strategies that Parkour training can provide.
Itʻs a worldwide collective effort to balance along for 701KM (about 435 miles!) to raise awareness and donations for mental health through parkour programs in the UK (Free Your Instinct) and Wallrunners (Palestine).

You can choose to participate for free, just register with your pledged distance (you can change it after the marathon if you under or over achieved your goal!) You can also donate whatever amount you would like to go to these very effective mental health programs (for easy reference, £10 British pounds is currently close to $12.50 USD).
For those that practice parkour, we may at times have found our focus and clarity heightened while training, and especially when engaging in balance training, the world around us tends to dissipate as we focus on the task.
Hawaii Parkour is starting a group pledge with the goal of 5 miles (about 11,430 steps, OR, approximately two lengths of Central Parks in NYC. Over the next week starting on June 3rd, we will attempt and encourage each other to find a moment for balance. You may balance on whatever you fell like – a street curb, a railing, a high wall.
