On Monday, February 18th, Gymnastics Plus and Youthworks at Memorial teamed up for a day of celebration and fundraising.
Laurie Reid, owner of the local Gymnastics Plus and Kids Castle, donated $2 of every child’s admission on Monday to help support Children’s Wellness Month. Gymnastics Plus and Memorial Youthworks teaming up was a wonderful opportunity for us to get the word out about our organization and what we are all about.
It was awesome to walk around the gym and hear the chitter chatter about Children’s Wellness Month; it is a great feeling to know that this event helped create a buzz about Youthworks.
There were many children at the Gym on Monday, some regulars and some kids I met for the very first time. It was amazing to see kids from Children’s Village playing at the gym playing, and enjoying themselves.
Those kids are the reason Youthworks exists in the first place, or even does events like this. The children I interacted with on Monday are each amazing little lights; I only hope they know how grateful I am that they came to play on President’s Day.
Thank you, Gymnastics Plus! And thank you, kids!
