The concept of JumpBunch is pretty simple. We introduce kids to sports and fitness at an early age through a variety of active and fun activities. We are fortunate to have many wonderful host location partners such as daycares and preschools that open the door for this to happen for kids. Unfortunately, this is not a door that is so easily opened for kids with special needs.
JumpBunch franchise owners welcome the opportunity to work with special needs kids in cooperation with their parents and support locations. With the assistance of direct caretakers and teachers, much of our curriculum adapts very well and can provide the same opportunity to engage in fun and active sports and games. Our locations who currently support this need take great satisfaction in knowing what they offer makes a real difference.
On October 25, 2015, local JumpBunch owners Brian and Melissa Hasson had the opportunity to sponsor and be part of the largest charity event for special needs kids in the state of California. The Skechers Friendship Walk is a huge annual event that raised over 1.4 million dollars to support special needs kids and education. Such contributions have allowed the Hassons to support special needs kids with JumpBunch classes through the Friendship Circle of South Bay in recent years. Skechers Friendship Walk
JumpBunch franchise CEO Tom Bunchman traveled to take part in the event in recognition of the impact organizations such as this have on the families of special needs children who don’t often have the same opportunities to experience simple things like learning a new sport with friends. “JumpBunch has a great interest in the welfare of all children. We are excited to participate in the Skechers Friendship Walk for the benefit of special needs kids. There is no greater cause than helping these kids thrive in our society.”
