Eight Annual Meeting!

The 2018 Annual Meeting will be on Friday, September 28th. RSVP Required.

" One day when Catalina was 3, she grabbed hold of my hands and then proceeded to do a back flip without much assistance from me. It was that day that I decided to sign her up for gymnastics. She began in the recreational classes at Discover and within two years was asked to move into the Hope Team. It's been a whirlwind of a ride and we haven't looked back since. Gymnastics doesn't come naturally to Catalina. Every skill she acquires, every move she perfects, she does so through hard work and determination. When she finally masters a skill, all the frustration she felt during the process falls away, and her confidence soars! Gymnastics is not just something Catalina engages in, it is who she is. She is known to our friends and family as "the gymnast" and identifies herself as such. I recently began my own practice and while I have been working on getting it off the ground, I was finding it difficult to keep up with the monthly tuition payments. Heartbroken that Catalina may have to stop doing the one thing that she has thrown herself into her entire life, I was extraordinarily grateful that we were able to receive a scholarship through Discover Fitness Foundation so that she could continue to be the gymnast she tells everyone she is. I am more than thankful that we were provided a scholarship and I am so incredibly happy that we get to continue to be a part of the Discover Gymnastics Team!"

A note from Catalina:

" Thank you, Discover Fitness Foundation, for helping my mom pay for my gymnastics. I like gymnastics because I get to do fun things and I get to work one on one with the coaches. Gymnastics teaches me to take hold of my fears and pushing them aside so I can do something I never could do before. I like that I am creating memories that I will be happy to remember when I get older. I couldn't do any of this without your help. Thank you so much!!"
