Welcome to Pioneer Gymnastics Academy
Now taking registrations for the 2015/16 school year… REGISTER TODAY!
Pioneer Gymnastics Academy is proud to announce that we will be putting together a team to support a cause that has become important to a couple of our team coaches here at the gym. The cause that we will be supporting is the Alzheimer’s Association.
You may be wondering why we have chosen to support the Alzheimer’s Association. In 2008 Dawn’s father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s while still living in Casper Wyoming. Last year Dawn and her family had to make the difficult decision to mover her dad to an Alzheimers Care Facility her in Lincoln. Less than a month after the move to Lincoln and six years after being diagnosed Dawn’s father lost his fight to the disease and he passed away last year. At nearly the same time that Dawn lost her father Ed’s father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and is currently on medication’s to slow the affects of this disease that attacks the brains memory. New medications seem to be helping to slow the effects of the disease but no matter what the doctors do they can not restore what has been lost.
It is for these reasons that we walk and raise funds in Memory of Dawns Father and in Honor of Ed’s Father so that the children and of today may someday live in a world free of Alzheimer’s and never have to visit their parents in a nursing home and not be recognized.
The 2015 Walk To end Alzheimer’s will be held at Holmes Lake Park on Sunday September 20th. This 2 mile walk is a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s association. The Alzheimer’s association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support and research. Their mission statement is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Please consider walking with us and making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association. More information may be found on our Walk To End Alzheimer’s Page: http://act.alz.org/goto/pioneergymnastics.
Our GOAL at Pioneer Gymnastics Academy is to TEACH children of all ages and ability levels the sport of gymnastics in a SAFE, ENERGETIC and FUN environment. We believe that the best way to teach and encourage young athletes is by positive reinforcement balanced with structure and discipline to ensure everyone’s safety. We also recognize that each child is a unique individual and should be taught in a manner that is most conducive to their learning and skill ability.
