The Klub gymnastics held a Kartwheel-A-Thon in July to benefit The Special Olympics World Games. Gymnastic students at the Klub were pledged donation per cartwheel, than had five minutes to do as many cartwheels as possible. The goal was to raise $2500.00, the amount needed to sponsor Italian Gymnast Carlotta Sanna participation in the World Games. Due to the hard work of our students, and the generosity of their friends and family, we raised over $13,109.70. This allowed us to sponsor four additional athletes! The additional athletes are from Costa Rica (2), Uruguay, and Hong Kong. A followup event was hosted at The Klub Gymnastics that included more cartwheel competitions, music, a raffle, and other entertainment.
The fundraising event was a success on a lot of levels, not just for the athletes, but our students learned a great deal about athletes with Special Needs. Reach up LA the World Games are coming July 25 to August 2nd!
