Testimonial - Teyan

"Thank you, Discover Fitness Foundation, for giving Teyan the opportunity to participate in gymnastics! He started out with recreational classes, and when he found out our gym was starting a boys team, he knew that was something he really wanted. He is now starting his third year on the team and loving every minute of it! Gymnastics has given Teyan much more than strength, coordination and agility.... he has also learned discipline, patience and believing in himself and others. We couldn't be more proud of him and his accomplishments!"

Year-End Giving

As Christmas approaches, we ask that you remember the DFF in your holiday plans. While preparing for your holiday celebrations with friends and family, it's important to stop and reflect on the blessings in your own life while also being aware that not everyone is so fortunate. While shopping for gifts, please consider setting aside part of your budget to support the work of the DFF with a charitable donation.
