  Solen - One of our talent scholarship  recipients

" Solen received a scholarship from the Discover Fitness Foundation.  He had been taking one gymnastic class a week and found he had a true talent and love for the sport.  His passion, hard work, focus and determination in class paid off and he found himself with an opportunity to be on the competitive Level 4 boy's team.  The financial commitment was a strain for the family.  We applied for and received the Discover Fitness Foundation Scholarship which enabled Solen to pursue his passion.  He trained hard and competed in several meets.  In the state competition he placed first in the parallel bars and sixth in the all-around competition.    It is difficult to put into words how amazing it is to see my child so happy in making his dream come true.  His smiles after practices and meets say it all!  Thank you Discover Fitness Foundation!"
