Help Us With Our Gymnastics Competition Endeavors

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Jamaica International Gymnastics Foundation, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

We are seeking your support for our Senior Artistic Gymnastics team who will be competing internationally throughout this and next year.

The team, lead by 2016 Olympian Toni-Ann Williams, has been competing successfully for the past several years. Toni-Ann is the first Jamaican gymnasts to compete in the Olympics and her success has not only inspired her fellow senior teammates but the junior team members as well.

Competitions are expensive and resources are limited. Funds are needed to help pay for the team to compete at these events (airfare, accommodations, meals, fees, etc. for each of them and their coaches).  Their parents and family members have been doing their best to save as much money as possible, but as you can imagine costs are high and they cannot do it alone.

For this reason, the Jamaica International Gymnastics Foundation, a 501(c)3 was formed to raise funds so they can continue to pursue their athletic goals. We are building our website which can be found at:
www.ja-intlgymnasticsfdn.org – it is still a work in progress that we are building.

 Gymnastics is a very demanding sport and requires 20+ hours of training per week in addition to college courses, assignments, work, etc. These talented and hardworking young gymnasts have put in many hours and as a result, experienced various levels of success throughout their careers including All-Around Champion and Individual Apparatus Awards.

Current team members:

Toni-Ann Williams – First Jamaican gymnast to compete at Olympic Games; three time World Championship competitor; 2019 Pan-American Games competitor; top Regional NCAA Division 1 gymnast, University of Berkeley, Berkeley, California graduate; numerous awards and accolades.
Danusia Francis – Two time World Championship competitor; 2019 Pan American Games All Around and Beam Finalist; high level Regional NCAA Division 1 gymnast, University of California Los Angeles, California graduate.
Kiara Richmon – World Championship competitor; 2019 Pan American Games competitor.
Reiss Beckford – First Jamaican gymnast to compete at Commonwealth Games; three time World Championship competitor; 2019 Pan American Games All Around Finalist.
Caleb Faulk – Three time World Championships competitor; 2019 Pan American Games competitor; NCAA Division 1 gymnast; graduate with Distinction, University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa.
Michael Reid – Three time All American; two time NCAA pommel horse Champion; top NCAA Division 1 competitor; graduate University of Oklahoma, Norman, Oklahoma.
 
On behalf of the team and foundation, I thank you in advance for your support.
