Decorah Community Recreation Center

$1,000 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 51 months
Over 1/3 of the adult population is obese.  Almost 1/5 of kids are obese.  These are sad statistics about our society, and we'd like to do our part to address this.

Our small community has many instructors of activities like martial arts, aerobics, yoga, pilates, etc.  But few locations to offer these classes.

With the help of a local business man who was willing to offer us affordable rent in one of his buildings, we have found the space. 

Now we are looking for funding to pay for equipment and supplies to offer these classes.  Most of the funds will go towards purchasing mats to offer a safer environment.  We are also looking to purchase paint for the walls, furniture for a study room, seating for parents (for kids classes), and class specific supplies (like pads for the martial arts classes).

This is the main activity room.  Looking to add mats here...



As you can better see in this picture, the carpetting needs either replacing or at least a good cleaning...




This is a nook off of the main room that we plan to use for parents.  Need furniture, etc. for this room...

Our site is really coming along now! Thank you to all the donations, both cash and items. Our main space now has padding around the pillars, has been cleaned up, and is already in use. Our kid's play area (for younger siblings waiting for class to finish) now has mats and some toys. And the parent's lounge now has a coffee pot, coffee cups, and a working water fountain.

Spent another day cleaning up the space last Thursday. The carpet is all cleaned now (finally!). I also added a few mats to our kid's area. Looking for toys/books for that area now. If you have any you'd like to donate, please let me know. Any donations need to be appropriate for all ages of kids, including those under 2. So nothing with small parts please.
