In our annual Gymkana Flip-A-Thon, our team works to complete as many flips as possible off a trampoline in 10 minutes to raise money for our program. The audience will also get a sneak peek at a few of this season's performance acts. This year's Flip-A-Thon team will be comprised of both current and alumni members of the Troupe to create a dynamic mix, representing troupers over the years!
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 performances. 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 supporting the development of our troupers and expand our outreach by keeping our performances accessible to those we work to impact.
This campaign will remain active throughout the month of November, with the Flip-A-Thon itself taking place on November 12 at 2:30PM EST. It is free to attend (UMD School of Public Health building, room 1120), and will also 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. Donations of $300 or more will be recognized on a plaque that is displayed in the Gymkana training facility. We thank you in advance for your support!
