End-of-Year Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation Showcase
June 8 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT
On Saturday, June 8th the Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation (WHGF)presents its end-of-year showcase at Kemeny Recreation Center.
Founded by Wendy Hilliard, Hall of Fame rhythmic gymnast and the first African-American to represent the U.S. in international competition, the Harlem-based nonprofit organization provides free and low-cost quality gymnastics programs for inner-city youth.
After two decades of successful programming in Harlem, serving more than 17,000 youth, the program expanded into Detroit in September 2016.
Since WHGF’s Detroit launch, the program has tripled in size and now serves more than 200 students per week.
