Most of the people that visit this page know Jessy Abigayle Collins and love her spirit, personality and iron will. Some people will know about her family and home life. A few might even be aware of the finances and how efficiently the budget is kept. What a lot of people will also know is that Abi is vivacious, quirky and kind. And what only a few are privileged to see is Abi's determination, grit and focus when it comes to school and her sport. She continually practices excellence in both and excels quickly.
What you will find out through this GoFundMe is that Abi Collins is an excellent gymnast. So excellent in fact, that she has won the privilege of going to the USA Gymnastics National Championships! This is the opportunity of a lifetime, and has been a goal that Abi has worked toward for over a decade.
Here's the clincher: it always comes down to money.
Abi's mom works full-time between two jobs, homeschools, is board member of a birthing center, and is managing master's degree, in addition to taking care of house and home, spending time and alone time (see where Abi gets it from?!).
It would be helpful and I know Abi would be grateful beyond words for the opportunity to compete at the national championships!
Thank-you for your love and support.
