Wanda - One of our fitness scholarship recipients

"Thank you so much for providing this wonderful program. I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for having Wanda in your program. Without this program Wanda would have sat and watching television around all day. She probably would not have the confidence do cart wheels and dance routines by herself. Also, this help her to improve her muscle and now she is very happy girl with a great spirit of help.
The generous support of individuals like you makes it possible for my children to grow up healthy. That is because my children love coming to the Discover Gymnastics to do their exercises routine. Also, it gives them an opportunity to interact with other children which helps them develop social skills. I am deeply appreciative of your support."

Wanda's Mother

A note from Wanda:

"Thank you for having me in your program. When I go to my classes, I feel excited and happy because I get to make new friends and my coach encouragement me a lot to do new set of exercises and dance routines. When Dance Fitness Program started, I had to learn hard stunts and quick dance routines. Then I would practice the dance routines and stunts at home so I could get them. Finally I started to improve on my dancing. In the future, I would like to be a volunteer at Discover Gymnastic."
Another Successful Texas Classic! 

Board chairman Jill Campbell and vice chairman Philip Golden

The Texas Classic Gymnastics Invitational was held December 9-11 at the Galveston Island Convention Center. The Texas Classic attracts "compulsory level" gymnasts (young stars on the rise) from all over Texas, surrounding States such as Louisiana and Oklahoma, and Mexico. There were 500-600 gymnasts, their families and friends in attendance. A portion of the proceeds went to Discover Fitness. This year we raised $21,900! Thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors that helped make this event so successful!
