Benefit for Nikki Sweeney

Roanoke Academy of Gymnastics would like to reach out to all of our friends, family, and community in support of one of our very own, Nikki Sweeney.  Nikki is facing what we all fear for any of our loved ones—a battle with cancer.  She has been diagnosed with rare small cell cervical cancer.  Her doctors have already started what will be a lengthy regimen of chemotherapy and radiation.  It has caught all of us by surprise, and we want to support her in any way possible as she moves bravely ahead with treatment and recovery.

After being a very successful gymnast for the State of Virginia in her youth, Nikki embarked on her coaching career.  She has now been with Roanoke Academy of Gymnastics for thirty years, during which time she has coached every level from 1 to 10! She currently coaches level 4 girls; her favorite event to coach is beam.  Nikki has an amazing passion for, and commitment to, the sport of gymnastics.  She has been an integral part of the development and quality of our gymnastic program, and has created a strong legacy in the sport.

Outside of work, she is a loving daughter, a cherished wife, and a wonderful mother of two boys.  She enjoys crafting, raising chickens, building and working on her house, and sewing. 

As Nikki and her family face this adversity, she will need all of our love, support, and prayers.  If you are able to donate to the cause, we are certain that it will be a huge help in getting her back to the Nikki that we know and love.
