If you follow me on Instagram, you know that ever since we received our Springfree Trampoline back in mid-June, my kids have been on it EVERY SINGLE DAY. This is not an exaggeration. Even if it’s raining…they go on it. Even if it’s scorching heat…they go on it. They LOVE that trampoline so much!
It’s been so interesting to see how a piece of sports equipment has not only transformed our family but also those around us. I’ve found it interesting to see how each of my kids use it. With my daughter, I’ve found that she often likes to spend her quiet time on the trampoline…probably to get away from her two younger brothers. She loves being alone on their and getting the space that she needs.
For my middle son, he is always about community on the trampoline. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him on their alone…he wants people around him all the time. What’s been fascinating with this is to watch him play on their with the neighbors. Right from the get-go, we told our neighbors that the trampoline was there for everyone to use. We don’t have fences that divide up our backyards, so it’s easy access for anyone to come in. But the really interesting part about this is that quite honestly, we hardly ever saw our neighbors before we had the trampoline. Everyone just stuck to themselves, and this was especially sad knowing that each family had several kids living in the homes. Since we’ve had the trampoline, I would say our kids have developed some beautiful friendship with these neighbors that they never had before. It’s been incredible to watch.
For my youngest, he doesn’t do a ton of jumping, rather, he plays dinosaurs and samurai’s on there! It’s hilarious to watch (I’ll have to catch him in the act one of these days and put on Instagram for you all to see!)
Springfree is truly all about bringing people together and I’m excited to let you know that they’ve partnered with two-time Olympic Gold Medal-winner trampolinist Rose MacLennan to host a Canada 150-themed event happening THIS Saturday, July 29th at Yonge and Dundas Square to benefit Cystic Fibrosis! Here are the details:
- The event will be taking place July 29th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Trampolines will be set up with the TGOMA interactive gaming system and guests will be invited to play.
- The TGOMA will be connected to a custom, Canada-150 themed version of the Quizzle game where the questions will be all Canadian trivia.
- For each 150 questions answered correctly collectively by event guests, Springfree will donate one trampoline from the event to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. There are 10 trampolines to give away, so they need everyone’s help to succeed at this goal!
So why is this event important? Trampolines are great therapy for those who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis as it’s a low-impact alternative to traditional exercise. Any exercise is really good for those suffering from CF as it helps loosen the mucus within their lungs which hinders their breathing. And it’s a fun activity for anyone, as we know, but especially for those who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis…it helps them feel young, happy and excited again, which are all things that this disease tries to rob from them from a very early age.
If you’ve wanted to try the Springfree Trampoline, especially the interactive TGOMA system, and you are located within the GTA, plan on a family day of fun downtown Toronto, all while supporting a GREAT cause!
Hope to see you there!
