Want to join us in making a difference? We're raising money to support the Pump Track project at the Burton Adventure Recreation Center (BARC) and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to our island community. 38491552_1555291312301407_r.jpegList of features 1: ADA Path 2: Seating and Resting area 3: Exercise Stations 4: Parkour area 5: Skate Features 6: Climbing Wall 7: Native Plantings and Bio-Retention 8: Skateable Art 9: Existing Skate Bowl 10: Proposed Pump Track 

In 2017 Rjs Kids was requested by young adults living in the community to assist in fundraising for the building of additional outdoor facilities at the BARC. The VPD did not have immediate plans for improvements. As a non-profit committed to supporting the underserved residents of Vashon, Rjs Kids recognized the opportunity to help and agreed to apply for grants and administer the project to completion. As part of the grant process, community engagement is required to identify the need.

In December 2018 and January 2019, Rjs Kids, in partnership with VPD, held a series of Public Comment meetings to review the proposed improvements to the park and identify additional features to be incorporated. The consistent request and the common thread to all meetings and discussions were that there is no facility that is accessible to all ages and all abilities that provides a diversity of recreational opportunities in a community supported environment.

The $150,000.00 grant for the BARC Pump Track (Phase 2) was awarded to Rjs Kids in August 2018. The BARC Pump Track Project is on a ranked list of projects for 2019 through the legislatively-funded Youth Athletic Facilities grant program. This is a grant match program requiring $75,000.00 of cash or in-kind donations. At the time of launching this GoFundMe campaign for the Pump Track project (phase 2), there had been $13,080 raised.

Rjs Kids submitted a second grant application for $250,000.00 to King County Parks in April 2019 for funding of Phase 3. The grant requires a contingency cash fund of $35,000.00 based on the construction costs.

If you are interested in volunteering labor or donating materials, machines or tools towards the project, please send an email to BARCpumptrack@gmail.com and a fundraising team member will follow up with you shortly. All donations like labor help contribute towards the overall grant match goal. 

100% of donations will go directly to the project.

Want to contribute to the BARC pump track project, but don’t have the extra funds? How about donating time and/or materials? It all counts towards the grand match requirement. An extra bonus is that construction professionals can charge their pro rate for hours donated. For example 8 hours at $75/hour = $600 contribution. BOOM! Not a trades pro? How about donating 8 hours at $20/hour? Still makes for a substantial donation. If you would like to sign up or want a list of needed materials please send an email to BARCpumptrack@gmail.com
