Elk Valley Gymnastics Club to host fundraiser

The Elk Valley Gymnastics Club will be hosting a pizza party fundraiser at The Loaf on June 15, from 3:30 to 9:00 p.m.

The purpose of the fundraiser is to help support the club, raise funds for upcoming and past competitions as well as buy new uniforms for the new competitive season.

The Junior Competitive team will be heading to their first competition in Kimberley on May 25 to 26. As well, they will be heading to Kelowna from June 11-12.

They junior’s are looking forward to having matching leotards in their upcoming competitions.

The gymnastics club recently hosted a beef jerky fundraiser, from which they raised $600 for the club.

The pizza party fundraiser will be held after the competitive season, and will serve as a year-end party. Any money raised will go towards the club and the costs they endured throughout the season.

The Elk Valley Gymnastics club was launched in 2016, and is run by parents and volunteers. In addition to these, there are four coaches, two of which are full time.

In addition to competitive training they offer parent and toddler classes, as well as parkour. All their training is held at Max Turyk.

The club is currently looking for a bigger space, in which they can offer more kids the opportunity to participate in their programs. They do have their eyes set on a location, but will decide in the next few weeks.

The evening fundraiser at The Loaf will include a raffle, door prizes, and t-shirt sales.

Tickets for the evening will be $10, five of which will go to The Loaf.
