Coolest flippin’ thing I’ve ever seen. Literally!!
Check this guy out… From right here in Nashville, Pat Graves started doing back flips, front flips, side flips, any kind of flip you can imagine, and documenting them on Vine, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter…you name it. Day one turned into Day 100, which turned into 250, 500, and soon, the 1,000th day in a row!
I posted a video below for your viewing pleasure and some info below on how to be a part of Day 1,000.
My name is Pat Graves, creator of FlipADay. I started FlipADay because flipping is something that has made me happy since I was a toddler. On New Years Eve 2013, I figured that if I did at least one flip of some sort every single day, I’d be happy, even if it was happiness just in that one moment. I started January 1st, 2014. It is Day 997 as I write. FlipADay has reached 10 million people since its inception. I have held myself accountable by vowing to post each flip to social media, every day, on the day it was done. You can see every single flip on Instagram and Vine @ FlipADay.
My aim through FlipADay is to Inspire Happiness. All Inspire Happiness means is this–find what YOU love, and LIVE it. Just because I flip, film, and post to social media every day, does not mean anyone else has to! It can be anything, as long as it makes YOU happy. I believe that FlipADay’s Inspire Happiness movement is for everyone, all ages. If more people were doing what they love every day, they would be happier–the more happy people in the world, the happier the world becomes. With your voice, and my message, I believe we could make a difference in many people’s lives.
I am having an event in celebration of Day 1,000:
Day 1,000 of FlipADay will be held at Above All Extreme Air Sports in Brentwood, TN on Monday, September 26th (1647 Mallory Lane, Brentwood, TN)
Details are as follows:
The event will be open to all ages. The admittance is FREE if you would like to watch me perform / film my flips and trick shots, and $15 if you would also like to bounce. There will be family package discounts as well!
It will be a charity event–50% of the proceeds will go to Hope For Depression Research Foundation, as flipping has helped me tremendously in dealing with both depression and anxiety.
I will be filming and performing various flips / trick shots / stunts at Above All starting at 9:00AM. At 11:00AM, doors will be open to anyone who would like to spectate and / or bounce. (My team and I will be sanctioned off in our own area so people can easily watch.)
At 4:00PM, I will begin bouncing around the gym with all who are in attendance. I will be giving quick lessons on how to flip, etc. (I have been flipping for 26 years, and coaching gymnastics / tumbling for 8 years.)
At 7;00pm, Mutual Groove, Bentley and The Hustle, and Stealing Oceans (all three of the Nashville-based bands that I play bass for) will be performing inside the trampoline park. (My main band, Mutual Groove, just won Best Funk / Reggae / Fusion Band at the 2016 Nashville Industry Music Awards last month.)
Jack Browns Beer and Burger Joint will be cooking burgers and fries at the event from 4:00-7:00 (they will not be providing alcohol).
