Spurs Give makes an impact on the San Antonio community whether it’s improving the surroundings for citizens or enhancing experiences of patrons. This week the Spurs put their stamp on the popular children’s DoSeum, a interactive museum located just north of downtown in the historical Brackenridge Park area.

The Coyote, Spurs Hype Squad, and 350 students from local schools were there to kick off the Pull-Up Jumper exhibit alongside SS&E personnel Peter J. Holt, Corinna Holt Richter, Bobby Perez, Sean Elliott, and DoSeum CEO Dan Menelly.

“Spurs Give is thrilled to partner with The DoSeum on this exciting new exhibit that will serve as a foundation for children to work together and develop lifelong skills through hands-on play and critical thinking,” said Jennifer Regnier, Executive Director of Spurs Give. “We share a deep appreciation and love for our city, and our youth and remain fiercely devoted to helping and investing in future generations by offering them a safe and instructive space to have family fun.”

The interactive Spurs experience offers young fans the chance to step into the world of the Silver and Black by testing their abilities to work as a team.

The Pull-Up Jumper graces the entrance of The DoSeum, making it easily accessible for all. Patrons use a system of pulleys to send a ball into a series of basketball hoops. The exhibit gives children an opportunity to learn about mechanics and gravitational forces of items in motion.

“As we celebrate one of our first important milestones with our five-year anniversary, it gives me great pleasure to partner with the Spurs, one of the greatest symbols and examples of San Antonio pride,” said DoSeum CEO Dan Menelly. “I am delighted to see that The DoSeum’s work is being recognized and supported by this generous gift from Spurs Give. I cannot wait to see children’s minds at play in the Spurs Pulley Up Jumper.”

There are endless hours of fun and inventive play available at The DoSeum. No two visits are exactly the same. (Trust me, I have a membership and a six-year-old.) It’s a great way to spend a day and enjoy some creative time with your little ones. For information about attending The DoSeum, click here.
