If you love gymnastics as much as we do, you probably LOVE the idea of having a bigger facility and MORE fun equipment here in Whitehorse!
Our second annual Flip for the Future Gym-A-Thon is a fundraiser aimed at building a better future for our club. All proceeds will go towards gym facility improvements and equipment.
Last year our community raised $6,000 with this fundraiser and this year our goal is to raise $10,000.
What is Flip for the Future?
Flip for the Future is a Gym-A-Thon; participants register for the event via our Amilia registration system for their age category and then do as many cartwheels and somersaults as they can in 45 minutes.
