We just launched our Fund Our FAN campaign to install a ventilation fan in our Flying Trapeze Tent – and I want to send out a huge thank you to our first six donors who took the swing on the first day!
Thank you Velibor Peric, Autumn Sakai, Lori Adams, Kevin Nelson & Raina Domek, Nikki Watters, and David Greenspoon!!
Flying trapeze is a huge part of the circus experience – it’s an amazing confidence builder, an exciting and fun way to overcome fears, and a wonderful way to build team spirit and camaraderie in a non-competitive environment.
Every year at the SANCA School of Flight we:
- Bring underserved and at-risk youth from communities and organizations like the Broadview Emergency Shelter, Refugee Women’s Alliance, Powerful Schools, and others to experience flying trapeze. In learning to fly, these youth have positive and meaningful experiences with peers and mentors that can be life changing.
- Give hundreds of summer camp youth a flying experience they will never forget.
Run classes for more than 3,000 flyers.
- Hold spring and fall shows with four teams of performing flyers ranging from ages 5 to adult.
We need to ventilate the tent. It is:
- Too hot in the summer
- Too damp in the winter
- Equipment gets damp and moldy and needs extra maintenance
- Flyers must use a lot of extra chalk to stay dry and safe
A ventilation fan provides:
- Airflow and cooling on hot summer days
- Reduces condensation and moisture in the winter
- Keeps equipment dryer and in better repair
- Makes the environment safer, cooler, and more comfortable for our flyers
- A huge savings in ongoing equipment maintenance time and costs
This equipment installation will cost SANCA $13,843 – but your contribution today will help defray those costs and invest in the future of flight for all our students.
By supporting the installation of a ventilation fan, you’re helping SANCA to continue to share the joy of flight with thousands of children, youth, and adults in the years to come.
We can’t do it without you! Please join our campaign today.
