American Lung Association Annual Cartwheels/Tumbles for Healthy Lungs
March 1, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
Cartwheels/Tumbles for Healthy Lungs, a unique event that is entering its 34th year, brings out more than 90 gymnastic students and raises more than $5,000 annually to benefit the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania and the Harrisburg Gymnastics School.
This event gives gymnasts the opportunity to demonstrate how many Cartwheels/Tumbles they can turn in 10 minutes. In this way, healthy youngsters show their concern for children with lung disease. Since many children cannot enjoy strenuous activity, gymnasts support the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania in its fight against asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, COPD, and other lung diseases. In addition, the event will raise funds for the Harrisburg Gymnastics School.
To donate to Cartwheels for Healthy Lungs, please contact Charyl Miller-Felo at The Harrisburg Gymnastics School at 717-561-0959 or mail contributions to The Harrisburg Gymnastics School at 3427 Derry Street, Harrisburg, PA 17111.
