On December 12, 2009 our gym, Leap of Faith Gymnastics, held our first annual "Leap for the Cure" Christmas Gym Shows in which we supported The American Cancer Society. Our three most advanced girls wore GK pink gymnastics leotards with the gold heart to represent The American Cancer Society (our daughter Laken Lewis is pictured with our donation tree).
In each show, the coaches and Advanced Gymnasts levels 4+ opened with "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree." Laken performed beautifully each time to "Let it Snow" by Martina McBride. In addition, Gymnastics Level Ones, Twos and Threes, Leaping Lambs toddler class, and Advanced Cheer Tumble each performed to Christmas songs such as, "Jingle Bell Rock","Santa Baby" and "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas".
A goal of $500 was set for The American Cancer Society and we raised a Grand Total of $540.71! Together we raised the money by collecting donations at the door to "Fill Our Stocking", accepted community sponsorships from community businesses and sold $1 pink Christmas Ornaments to fill our tree, "In Honor of" or "In Remembrance of".
By the last show the six foot tree was overflowing with ornaments. People in our community are already asking when our next show will be and if they can come and watch! We would like to personally Thank everyone who so generously gave to help us go above and beyond our goal!More pictures from the event can be found on our website at www.leapoffaithgym.webs.com.
