Our twins are exciting gymnasts, and we are doing everything in our power to care for, cheerlead, nurture and support them in every way. Academically, they are both A and B students. As gymnasts they perform with the kind of confidence, skill, agility, and strength that is amazing to watch and reminds each of us what can be achieved through discipline and unwavering dedication. They tumble, twist and fly; they soar, spring, and swing in daring dances of incredible artistic movement, courage, stamina and strength, but now the twins' careers as gymnasts are in jeopardy.
Kiera and Liam have dedicated themselves to the sport of gymnastics since the age of four when they began in tumbling classes. Nine years later, these 13 year old twin gymnasts want to use the skills they have developed through their extraordinary focus and efforts to move to the next level in their sport and to continue to be active members of their gymnastics teams. However, these training and competition expenses are hugely expensive --approximately $6,000+ (traveling expenses, away meets, uniforms, coaches fees per meet, etc) a year per twin and we (their parents) need some extra help to pay for them. Liam has been fortunate in receiving some generous loans from sponsors, but Kiera has had to leave the program due to costs in spite of being the Regional Bars champion. As their parents, we are heartbroken that Kiera is not allowed to practice a sport she loves and at which she excels; however, we are determined to see both of our children's dreams come true. At this time funding is needed to pay tuition and competition expenses. Kiera cannot continue without the sponsorship and generous donations of generous people like you. We are reaching out to the community for help. Alexander Herwitz & Kathy Doherty
