Washington Primary is located in Washington Depot, Connecticut. Though we are a small school we have BIG HEARTS and a BIG LOVE of parkour, ninja warrior, and H2O for Life! Over the last three years we have improved the water and sanitation systems of 2 schools in Africa and look forward to helping the students of EZ Kabane. We are inspired by the words of Melody Beattie who wrote, “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates vision for tomorrow.” After each of our successful fundraisers we are thankful that Know Obstacles and The Movement Creative come to our school on the day of our Water Runs and hold a parkour and obstacle course workshop.
Our goal is to raise $4,000 for EZ Kabane High School:
EZ Kabane is a high school of more than 500 fun, active, and ambitious students operating out of an abandoned school building in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. On top of educating the students, the understaffed administration and teachers must deal with a crumbling infrastructure and the fact that the entire school has only one toilet with dysfunctional flushing capabilities and just one source of drinking water—an outdoor spicket. If we can help the community repair all flushing toilets, construct additional water taps, build a water tank, replace toilet seats and provide doors to bathroom stalls, the principal and teachers of EZ Kabane can concentrate on what they do best…educating children!
