Gem City’s Tumbling Team competed in their second competition of the 2018-2019 competition season in Canton, IL on December 9. Awesome job tumblers!
Gem City’s Gymnastics Team competed at the Horton Invitation in Bloomington on December 7-9. It was their third meet of the season and their last meet of 2018 this weekend. We are very proud of our girls. Our Level 3 Team earned 5th Place Team Award! 🎉
Our gym held a Giving Tuesday donation event with our Team athletes. We are trying to encourage a thoughtful mind and a giving heart this holiday season. We handed out letters encouraging our Team athletes to choose an organization, donate $1-$5 of their own money, and then write us a letter telling us why they chose that particular organization. The gym then matched up to $5 for each donation. The more our kids see giving the more likely they are to give themselves. Whether they give of their money, their time, or their resources, we are thankful to have such generosity in our youth.
