￼Meet Nas, our 11 year-old competitive gymnast and pre-professional dancer from Harlem. Nas has been training for an average of 12 hours per week since he was introduced to gymnastics at the age of 8.
We are so proud of his accomplishments this year namely being offered admission to the American Ballet Theater, prep status at Harlem School for the Arts, and winning Gold and Silver medals at the USA Gymnastics Regional Championships last month in Virginia! Nas and Taraya are the only team members who qualified that will go and represent the Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation of Harlem, NYC at the USA Gymnastics National Championships in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from June 27-June 30th.
Can you pitch in to help us with the cost of travel and lodging for Nas and his cheerleaders (mom & baby sis)? No amount is too small. Help us get Nas to Nationals and keep him in training the 2017-18 season!
If you'd like to see Nas in action, please visit his Instagram page and follow his journey @nasdoesitall .
Thank you so much!
