Jumpin back in season

Friday, September 7 | 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm | SkyZone Philadelphia (9490 Blue Grass Road, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19114)

Jump back into the fall season – whether you’re headed back to school or back to the field, this event is perfect to get you back into the swing of things! Ticket includes jumping for an hour (and some rad socks!) as well as pizza and a beverage. If jumping isn’t your thing and you want to just come to hang out, you can purchase the “just food” option that will get you a slice of pizza and a beverage. Can’t make it at all? Consider sponsoring an athlete – so an athlete who has financial hardships can join the fun! Tickets are $20 a person or $5 for just food.
