WHERE and WHEN? Toronto Gymnastics International will be sending a team to perform at the 2015 World Gymnaestrada taking place July 12th - 18th in Helsinki, Finland.
WHAT? Gymnaestrada combines gymnastics and dance in group routines featuring athletes of both genders, ages 9+, and all abilities. Participation in this event will enable athletes who might not otherwise travel outside of Ontario for their sport to demonstrate their skills and creativity on an international stage. Our team has been training every week for 3 hours since the middle of November and will continue to do so until our departure in July.
The World Gymnaestrada is a world-wide, non-competitive Gymnastics for All event held every four years and attracting the largest number of active participants of any Gymnastics event. Participation is for everybody, regardless of gender, age, race, religion, culture, ability or social standing. This event will be host to more than 21,000 athletes and spectators from around the world.
WHY? This event is a 'once in a lifetime experience for these gymnasts.' Your financial support will help get the team to Helsinki!!!! A donation of any size would be greatly appreciated.
