WHAT

In appreciation for their partnership with Indy Parks & Recreation, Go Ape at Eagle Creek Park announces a Park Friends Fundraiser. On Saturday, Oct. 4 and Sunday, Oct. 5, $10 of every ticket sold will go back to the park through a donation to The Eagle Creek Park Foundation.

“As part of Go Ape’s mission to support the parks, we are happy to support organizations, like The Eagle Creek Park Foundation, that are such worthwhile contributors to the preservation and sustainability of Eagle Creek and other parks across the Indianapolis region. I hope that everyone will join us as we raise funds for The Eagle Creek Park Foundation while enjoying this exhilarating outdoor adventure,” said Dan D’Agostino, Go Ape USA Managing Director.

The Eagle Creek Park Foundation (www.eaglecreekpark.org) formed to protect, promote, enhance and support the park as a self-sufficient entity in the Indy Parks System. Eagle Creek Park is the one of the largest city-owned parks in the nation and one of the largest parks devoted entirely to nature. It is truly the gem of the Indy Parks System.

“The Eagle Creek Park Foundation is pleased to once again partner with Go Ape for a fun day out at the park’s Go Ape facility. Go Ape has created a fantastic outdoor adventure course that compliments the many activities available at Eagle Creek Park. We look forward to a great day out at the park on Oct. 4 and 5 to benefit the Foundation,” said Mike Davis, president of the Eagle Creek Park Foundation.

During the Park Friends Fundraiser, guests receive 10% off their ticket when they use promo code “GIVEEC” to book at www.goape.com, or by calling 1-800-971-8271. With the promo code, every guest who books for Oct. 4 and 5 will receive a 10% discount PLUS $10 of their ticket goes back to the park.

Park Friends Fundraisers, are just one way Go Ape supports the parks. A portion of every ticket sold throughout the year already goes back to the parks, and throughout the year Go Ape staff also takes part in park cleanups, replanting, and donating free and discounted tickets to underserved and special needs communities. All of Go Ape’s treetop adventure courses, built in partnership with public parks across the country, are taking part in the fundraiser. The company encourages everyone to support the organizations that contribute to their parks and make this year’s Park Friends Fundraiser the most significant yet.

ABOUT GO APE USA (www.goape.com)

Go Ape is a highly interactive treetop adventure where participants are equipped with harnesses, pulleys and carabineers and receive a 30-minute training session before they are turned loose into the forest canopy. The courses feature a series of zip lines, Tarzan swings, rope ladders, bridges, swings, and trapezes. Catering to all skill levels, participants are encouraged to live life adventurously, push themselves, and turn “I can’t” into “I can.”  To join the tribe, follow @GoApeUSA or visit the YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/goapeusa.
