With the release of the Oregon Ducks football schedule for 2015 we are excited to announce the Duck Parking Fundraiser schedule!
The Slocum Center parking lot is a convenient walk to the University of Oregon’s Autzen Stadium. By choosing to park at Slocum, fans are supporting high school athletic programs and teams.
The Slocum Foundation's Duck Parking Fundraisers have generated more than $30,000 each year for local school fitness and athletic programs. Proceeds benefit everyone from athletic supplies and equipment to capital improvements at schools and venues. In 2014, the list of participating schools was expanded to include rural and South Lane County programs. Fourteen schools will benefit from parking proceeds support in 2015.
The Foundation receives a portion of the proceeds to help support the expansion of age-appropriate physical literacy training and education in elementary shools across Eugene and Springfield communities. In partnership with the Lane Active Youth Consoritum members, the Slocum Foundation participates in a collaborative approach to getting kids moving! Early childhood physical literacy unlocks the potentail for life-long enjoyment in physical activity and enhanced athletic performance. Kids who are physically fit enjoy greater academic achivement and higher life-time earning potential.
In 2015, each parking space will be $20.00. Come early to support your schools -- the lot fills quickly!
