SJSU Gymnastics- Vaulting to Greatness
UPDATE (Dec 7th): Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our original goal of $5,000! Because of you, we were able to reach the goal in less than a week which was much quicker than expected. This is an amazing start to helping us replace some equipment in our gym, but lets not stop there! We could still use your help in our quest to be great. Specifically, some additional funding will help us to replace all the mats in the gym, get a new vault runway and overall make our gym a better place to train. With this is mind we are increasing our goal to $8,000 and still have 24 days to get there. Please share our cause with your network and, if you haven't already done so, make your gift today!
The 2017 season was one of our most successful years in the program’s history. We won the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship and had two gymnasts win individual events at Championships - Haleigh Shepard (vault) and Taylor Chan (floor). Taylor was also selected as the MPSF Freshman of the Year. On top of that, three gymnasts, Katie Won, Rachel Heinl and Taylor, also competed at the NCAA Seattle Regional.
We want to continue our tradition of excellence this season, but we need your help so that we can continue to train at the highest level. Maintaining our equipment and facility comes with a big price tag. For example, a springboard that our vaulters need to win championships costs $920. Additionally, our beam team that recorded the second-best score in school history last year needs $250 to re-cover each of our beams and we have three. Lastly, a new set of bars will cost us $4,000.
We need your help to get to the next level of great and to continue our tradition of excellence. Every donation to our program, big or small, makes a huge impact on our student-athletes. This new gymnastics equipment will allow us to use last year’s success as a springboard to the next level. Please know that your gifts will help us continue to give back and be role models in our community as well as in the classroom. With a sturdy foundation, our team is ready to take the next step in both the classroom and the gym for going from a good year to a great year. Your donation will go directly to Gymnastics to help support our student-athlete experience. Any gift you make will have an immediate impact on our team!
We are excited about the future of our program and where it can go, but can’t progress without your help. Please make your gift today and know that every donation, big or small, will make a huge difference. Plus, your donation is 100% tax deductible.
