Gymnastics Dreams! #TEAMJORDAN



Hello All, I'm raising money for an awesome 14 year old girl with more personality than most could find in a lifetime. She was born with an illegal drug in her system and physically was not expected to do much. She had a physical therapist until she was about 3 years old because she was "tight" and needed stretching and didn't start walking until after well after she was 1 years old. She was so small for her age that 3 and 4 year olds would always want to play with her and pick her up even though she was 10. She was offered growth hormones after being medically tested because of her small stature and she refused because she said, "I'm ok being me." 

One day she was introduced to gymnastics by a friend and for the past 4 years she has excelled! Her first year at Level 5 she was State Champion in Illinois on the Floor Exercise. Her second year she placed 3rd in two events and 5th in another in a very tight competitive field. She is now the Illinois Level 6 Beam CHAMPION. Her coaches say she works so hard even though "her body doesn't want to be a gymnast." She is IN LOOOVVE with this sport and I want her to excel for many years to come. Olympics 2020 anyone?

I cannot be responsible for letting her down because of my financial inability to maintain the demand for this sport and that is why I am seeking your help in raising money for Jordan-Ann Scott!!!!!! (You can actual Google her... I'm a little jealous!) :)

This is not the complete break down, but here is ACTUAL COSTS of what SOME of this years break down is for her:

*$255 monthly for each year (participation only) = $3060
*8 competitive meets at $110/meet (minimum 6 meets) = $600-800
Note: The initial $600 to cover the registration costs for these 6 meets is due Sept 1, 2015 (in addition to the $255 monthly).
*The opportunity to compete at an invitational in December in Nassau, Bahamas.  $800+ (not including travel expenses).... 
*Travel Expenses = hundreds to thousands of dollars
*Team Fee $400
*Uniform $320 (Due August 2015)
*Floor Routine Music $75
*Floor Routine Choreographer $250 (3 hr minimum)
*More expenses not named =hundreds

I could continue because this sport is VERY taxing, but I want her to live her dream in the gymnastics world and be like her hero Gabby Douglas. I feel like I'm asking for a lot (and I am), but for this cause I think to ask is more than worth it. $1 is not too little and no amount is too much.  #TEAMJORDAN

ALL MONEY WILL BE GIVEN TO HER GYNASTICS CAUSE! ANYTHING THAT EXCEEDS THE REQUESTED DONATION WILL BE APPLIED TO THE FOLLOWING SEASON. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE.
