In our annual Flip-A-Thon event, our team works to complete as many flips as possible off a trampoline in twenty minutes to raise money for our program. The audience will also get a sneak peek of a few of this season's performance acts. This event will also feature a special twist: a team of Gymkana alumni members will challenge the current members in a friendly competition between the young and not-so-young-anymore. Each team will get 10 minutes to max out their flip counts to combine for our event total. Our all-time high was set in 2019 with 1,221 flips!
Each year we work with hundreds of kids through our summer camp and gymnastics classes, and we perform our unique acrobatic shows in front of thousands of people in schools, community events, and halftime shows. Our purpose is to show our audiences, primarily children, that they can have fun and do amazing things by making healthy choices. This fundraiser helps to raise money towards our operating expenses and expand our outreach by keeping our performances accessible to those we work to impact.
The event itself is FREE and will be broadcasted live on Facebook and Instagram. We are a self-funded non-profit outreach program, so our efforts are not possible without the help of our supporters. Your tax-exempt contribution will help in our mission to advocate healthy choices to our youth audiences through our unique acrobatic performances. We thank you in advance for your support!
