I am helping my nephew Woodson Morrow to raise money to fund his love of gymnastics - allowing him to train and compete in competitions throughout the country.
Woodson is 9 years old and has quickly risen to be a star gymnastics competitor both in Mississippi and Southeast for his age group. In 2012, Woodson joined a recreational gymnastics class for fun. In less than six months the coaches at Dawghouse Gymnastics recognized his potential. He was asked to join the pre-team. After four months of dedicated practices, Woodson surpassed the boys on the pre-team. He was given a coveted slot on the boy’s competitive team. Woodson has only competed four times and has placed 1st through 3rd in every event.
Dawghouse Gymnastics and Academy of Competitive and Preforming Arts (ACPA) have given Woodson an opportunity to showcase his natural ability, while building self-esteem, character, and determination to strive for the best in his future. Locally owned and operated for more than 20 years in Starkville, Mississippi, ACPA has sponsored a number of elite female gymnasts over the years. The goal going forward is to give the boys’ team the same opportunities as the girls. With several wins in the SE Championship, ACPA is on a path to success.
The cost for the training and competitions is $6,000 annually.
