Kaely's Acrobatic Dream
Organized by: Kristy Addison
Every little girl has a dream. Some dream about meeting Mr. Right, getting married, the perfect dress, their dream job, being a mommy. Kaely dreams of going to Nationals with Acrobatic Gymnastics again this year and being a Veterinarian when she grows up. She LOVES school and is gifted in her studies learning 1-2 years beyond her 3rd grade level. Last year was her first year doing competitive ACRO. For those who have never heard of this think of it as Cirque Du Soleil meet gymnastics floor. It's the best way I have found to describe it. Beyond our expectations she took to it very fast for having no experience and competed all the way to Nationals with her trio group. That was it, the ACRO bug bit her and she loves every minute of it!!! ACRO season has quickly approached and with that comes team fees, custom leotards, warm ups, private clean up sessions before meets, meet fees, National training camp at the Bela Karolyi Ranch and due to where we live traveling and expenses for all competitions as we are the only competitive team in the state of Arizona. Frequently have to go to California or Nevada to compete. Kaely will also be competing at an International meet being held in Las Vegas this year. I work a decent job, but after paying for the necessities of life there is little left over and if I lose a shift there's even less. I have 2 children both in sports and juggling to make it work has been difficult. They ask for so little and I feel like who am I to keep them from their dreams. I would like not to have to use credit cards to continue allowing them to do what they love. So this is what I ask, if you feel obliged to help a little girl reach for her dreams I would so greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance for anything you can contribute to her dreams. All money will go directly towards any and all ACRO expenses and if we are above what our goal is we will pay it forward and help out another athlete in need.
