In February 2017, GRT returned to Honduras with Skybound Trampolines to visit the children and help with skill devopment on the trampolines that were donated in 2016. It was a pleasure to see how much they were enjoying the opportunity to bounce and stay active.
In February, Greg Roe and Trish McGeer of GRT visited the orphanages and schools of El Porvenier, Honduras to see first hand how the donated garden trampolines and Olympic trampoline have impacted the lives of the children. Accompanied by a Seabound Trampoline representative, GRT set out to educate the public on the sport of trampoline. By providing donated trampolines to the children of Honduras, Skybound USA has provided an outlet for fun, safe play, training and exercise.
“GRT is proud to be working with the Bomberos (Fire Department) and Skybound USA in our collaborated efforts to continue bringing a fun and educational trampoline experience to the children of Honduras!” says Greg Roe, Co-founder of GRT Inc. “Our efforts here have grown to include working relations with the Honduran community leaders, as well as various organizations who also help foster community based programs!"
Skybound USA, a division of Fuloo LLC, have become the first Trampoline Manufacturer in North America to take steps towards improving and standardizing safety within the ‘garden trampoline industry,’ while partnering with Canadian Trampolinist Greg Roe of GRT. Skybound’s corporate philosophy is closely aligned with the message GRT Inc. has been delivering to the trampoline community worldwide -- creating a fun and safe environment for jumpers, achieved through a safe and educational training program.
Greg Roe and Trish McGeer, co-founders of GRT, partnered with Skybound USA due to their extensive experience and social awareness within the worldwide trampoline community; as well as SkyBound’s commitment to growing the sport of “#Gtramp” and bringing trampoline awareness to both the professionals and casual trampoline enthusiasts alike.
“SkyBound USA is so happy to have been able to supply trampolines for the children of Honduras. Serving these children in their communities and providing them a safe outlet for fun and trampoline exercise makes us proud of our shared mission with GRT.” – Ricky Lai, Skybound USA, Marketing Director.
