"The Discover Fitness Foundation has truly be been a blessing to my family. I was really concerned about confidence and feeling like my back was against the wall on how to financially support my daughter's gymnastics. Due to me losing my job and other factors related, Discover Fitness Foundation helped alleviate the financial burden in various ways. I was able to not only have confidence in her ability to improve in gymnastics but also I didn't have to worry about the financial hardship because of DFF scholarship. Thank you for your support." - Lyela's Mother
A note from Lyela:
I have been blessed with the opportunity to excel in areas I wanted to strengthen and refine thanks to generous help of Discover Fitness Foundation scholarship. I did it, anything is possible!
