School & Youth Program: New Partner for 2014-2015 School Year

Urban Air Trampoline Park is partnering with the North Texas Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) for the upcoming school year.  The popular entertainment venue is joining LLS’ School and Youth Program to incentivize students to raise money for children who are currently battling a blood cancer, like leukemia and lymphoma.

The School and Youth Program is an educational and philanthropic program where students across 119 North Texas counties learn about blood cancers and then collect spare change to benefit LLS and its mission of creating a world without blood cancers.  Urban Air Trampoline Park is joining LLS in its efforts to encourage students in the immediate DFW area to fundraise by offering free passes to one of their four locations as a reward for schools that raise more than $2,015 this year.

“Urban Air Trampoline Park is an ideal partner for School and Youth,” says Director Steve Abrey.  “Passes to enjoy Urban Air’s unique facilities are something that will certainly encourage students to rally behind our mission and collect money that is so vital to funding cutting-edge lifesaving research.”

The School & Youth Program is a signature event of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society because of the close connection between children and blood cancers.  Leukemia is the #1 cancer killer of children under 20 years old. 

The LLS mission attracted Urban Air to School & Youth.  “At Urban Air we have a huge heart for children and their families. We are excited about our partnership with LLS because it allows us to help raise awareness and money for a cause impacting so many of our customers,” says Alix Wren, Special Events Coordinator for Urban Air Trampoline Park.  “We cannot wait to see kids in these local schools make a difference as they rally behind such a great cause.”

Urban Air Trampoline Park first got involved with LLS through a fundraiser at its Frisco location called Jump for Julia and Leap for Lainey.  Supporters raised money to honor two families with young daughters currently battling a leukemia diagnosis.  Urban Air saw the impact LLS makes for patients in North Texas and reached out to start a partnership with School & Youth.
