Aim High Academy Gymnastics Heroes

Since 2007,  Aim High Academy combines flipping and faith to help build bright futures in urban children and youth from the North Tulsa community.

After volunteering with youth in the north Tulsa community for over 10 years, our Founder, Jennifer Patterson, saw a need for early intervention in the lives of the youth she was serving. Through prayer, God gave her the vision to combine her passion for the wonderful sport of gymnastics with her passion for North Tulsa children. Although unique, the idea makes sense. Children can begin gymnastics at age 2 or 3 – one cannot intervene much earlier than this! Gymnastics, being such a disciplined sport, presents opportunities for so many lessons children can receive.

March 25, 2015 was not an ordinary day for Aim High Academy. 60 girls were practicing just minutes before the entire building was demolished by a tornado. 200+ children lost their gymnastics gym.

“It was tough, but we are tougher.” -AIM High gymnast, Jamarie Wilson [age 12]

Now this 501(c)3 faith-based non-profit organization is seeking your help to start to rebuild from this sudden loss. A temporary location has been offered, so the campaign has begun to raise funds for quick replacement of practice equipment, emergency operating expenses, and all the costs of setting up a whole gymnasium in time for the children to keep working on their routines. Support the rebuild of this sudden loss here.

“I had just reminded all the coaches our plan in case of severe weather,” she said. “I had just reminded them of that yesterday. Never in a million years did I dream that this would happen.”

Are you prepared for unexpected weather? We are blown away by Aim High’s ability to react so quickly and keep all of the children safe. The building can be rebuilt. Lives can’t.
