Although the girls are preparing for post season competition, the Hicksville varsity gymnastics team took time out of practice to participate in “Cartwheel for a Cure” , a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
The girls performed as many cartwheels as they could in three minutes. Quite a dizzying experience indeed, but knowing they were once again giving to those in need made it all worthwhile.
The girls raised $315 for their 625 cartwheels.
What made it even a more special event was knowing that the money raised was being donated in the names of the 4 and 6 year old daughters of one of our own Nassau County coaches who are unfortunately are fighting this genetic lung disorder.
