Dear South Shore Gymnastics Academy and Metro South Gymnastic Academy Gymnasts:

A gymnastics superstar is coming to our gym!

2016 Olympic Gold Medalist Laurie Hernandez will spend Saturday, July 29 at our gym!

You have the opportunity to meet Laurie, win great prizes, and raise funds for the Special Olympics. Special Olympics is a global movement of people creating a new world of inclusion and community, where every single person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability or disability. They help to make the world a better, healthier and more joyful place — one athlete, one volunteer, one family member at a time.

The more money you raise, the more prizes you’ll win, the more time you’ll spend with Laurie and the more good you’ll do for others! You may even win a private clinic with Laurie, and lunch with Laurie!

Laurie is only 16 years old, yet has already earned a lifetime of remarkable gymnastics achievements.
