Handstands-for-Hunger 2017

Region 6 Men’s Gymnastics:

 Max Finn, a gymnast from Yellow Jackets Gymnastics, came up with an idea to help the community.

Member clubs across Region 6 are participating in a "Handstand-a-thon" to benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB).

Hunger hurts one in ten residents of Eastern Massachusetts.

 

The GBFB is the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year more than 54 million pounds of nutritious food was distributed, enough to provide healthy meals to over 500,000 people who struggle to eat. The GBFB is committed to increasing food distribution to provide at least one meal a day to every person in need in Eastern Massachusetts while supporting healthy lives and healthy communities.

Gymnasts may use the “Handstands for Hunger Pledge Form” to collect pledges from friends and family. People may pledge any dollar amount for every second the athlete spends in a handstand (or they may make a flat donation).

On March 15th, the day of the Handstand-a-thon, your gymnast will come to the gym and perform his/her handstand (limit the athletes to 1 minute).  If someone pledges $1.00 for every second in a handstand and your gymnast holds a 50 second handstand, that person donates $50.00.

All money raised will be donated to the GBFB.

After the handstands are finished, Click here for a link for the Handstands-for Hunger initiative.   Direct your friends and family to the Handstand-for-Hunger page and when a payment is made put your gymnast’s name in the "Comment" field so that we know who the donation came from.

Together, we can end hunger here.

FOGG Scholarship and Golf Tournament

Region 6:

 

The time to book your spot in the Friends of Gymnastics golf tournament has come.

Be sure to tell your athletes about the FOGG scholarship.

 

Gymnastics Coaches, Officials, and Friends have been gathering for over 44 years for a golf outing, to raise funds to benefit Gymnastics in Region 6. 

Founders of this event and major contributors have been George Jessup, Dwight Church, Ray Willock, Bill Jones, George Wheeler and John Redmon. 

Over the years, the event has produced new ideas to keep our sport growing.  Our scholarships encourage our gymnasts to continue to pursue a higher level of gymnastics and academic achievement.  Last year volunteers from the Gymnastic Community raised over $5,000 towards scholarship funds.

 

Click the links provided for the scholarship application for the FOGG and the form for the FOGG Golf Tournament.  

Please book your foresome as soon as possible and support Region 6 Men's Gymnastics.

Hit 'em with a three yard draw.
