TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A brand new indoor trampoline park in Tucson hopes to attract customers and help the community at the same time.

Get Air Tucson opened its doors about two weeks ago, and has begun a weekly program called "Thankful Thursday."

How the program works is every Thursday, jumpers who bring canned goods can jump for two hours for the price of one ($8 for this week; prices change to $11 next week). The canned goods will then be taken to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.

The facility features pit trampolines with foam pits, a dodge ball court with tumble tracks and angled sides, air jam basketball, Aerobics classes, and a free jump area with wall-to-wall trampolines.

Get Air Tucson is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on "Thankful Thursday." It's located downtown at 330 S. Toole Avenue near 12th Street and Broadway next to Rocks and Ropes.

For more information, call (520)624-5867 or visit their website at http://getairtucson.com/.
