This week we named Traceur and artist Will Koesters the Take Flight Fan of the Week!
When Will posted the edited image shown here we knew we had a contender for Fan of the Week. Currently living in Des Moines, Iowa, Will’s great illustration skills come from his work as a cartoonist and his great Parkour skills come from working with the Iowa Parkour Association. The group’s goal is to help organize PK groups around the state with their one association and to share Parkour with their community.
This week we recognize Will and his work to promote a positive image for Parkour by naming him the TF FOW. Congrats Will and awesome pic!
Take Flight is now an official partner of yet another state wide Parkour organization. This one is newer to the PK community and just as passionate and energized, if not more. They are Iowa Parkour and here is a little more about them:
Iowa Parkour is the official state wide Parkour organization of Iowa. A not for profit organization, one of Iowa Parkour’s main endeavors is to catalog the Parkour groups in Iowa on their our website so that anyone interested in Parkour activities in the state can readily find a group that is located near them. In addition to facilitating the communication between Traceurs in Iowa, Iowa Parkour maintains open communication with Parkour groups across the United States and beyond in an effort to help spread an awareness and understanding of Parkour and Freerunning beyond their state lines. Their mission is educating people about the philosophies of Parkour and the techniques used by traceurs, and Iowa Parkour’s ultimate aim is to support the worldwide community in their efforts to strengthen the popularity of Parkour and make it known and accessible to people from all walks of like and all age levels.
We are very pleased to have an official association with Iowa Parkour. We believe this shows the growth of Parkour in the United States and the continued positive influence it is having on youth around the country.
