National Gymnastics Day in Camas
VEGA gym earns a $1,000 grant from Right To Play
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Backed by a $1,000 grant from Right To Play, the Camas based Vancouver Elite Gymnastics Academy hosts an open gym and a Cartwheel-A-Thon Saturday.
The goal of this grant program is to increase the exposure and accessibility to gymnastics to a diverse population of children, and to use the sport to educate and empower those facing adversity. All proceeds from the event will go back to Right To Play.
“It’s an unbelievable opportunity for us to give back to the community that has continued to support us all these years,” said founding coach and co-owner Randy Fox. “We are just a conduit for getting everybody involved in helping children. If we can turn this into a huge amount of money to give back, that’s what will make this rewarding.”
