It’s finally here! The moment we’ve all been waiting for: the grand opening of the Bouncing Bulldogs Community Center, the world’s very first jump rope gym built from scratch!
The environmentally friendly space is designed to be a safe and welcoming place for children of all ages. Exciting features of the new gym include a state-of-the-art gym floor and a legacy room filled with historic pictures, news clippings, and awards from the past 30 years in honor of our alumni jumpers who built the foundation of the program. We cannot wait to see how the program grows in its new permanent home!
On Saturday, April 8, 2017, we will officially open the BBCC to celebrate the culmination of six years of hard work and dedication that have led to this moment. Join us for refreshments on April 8 at 10:00 a.m. for the grand opening ceremony, and take a tour of our new space between 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Parking will not be available at the BBCC so we ask that you park in Rams Plaza Shopping Center. We will provide a shuttle service to and from the BBCC to Rams Plaza every 15 minutes. The day will be full of reflection and surprises so we encourage everyone in the community to join in celebrating a historic milestone that truly represents the entire Chapel Hill and Durham area.
The Bouncing Bulldogs are very humbled and grateful for the immense support of so many people in the community and beyond throughout this entire journey. We would like to thank Coach and Mrs. Fredrick for their unwavering dedication to the program over the past 30 years. Their leadership and service have inspired the Bouncing Bulldogs program to grow into a community whose passion for jump rope and emphasis on life skills are highly respected around the world.
The BBCC will truly be a material representation of everything the Bouncing Bulldogs stand for. The gym and community center represents the teamwork and hard work of many, unity within diversity, a unique character that defines the Bulldog program, and the outreach that the program values. We hope to see you on April 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to pay tribute to the community of families and friends who have made our dream a reality.
