Relay for Life will take place on Saturday May 21st. Normally, the event lasts from 11 a.m. on Saturday until 6 a.m. on Sunday. This year we have the option of staying until midnight or until 6 a.m. Sunday morning. There will be no Competitive team or Xcel team practices on May 21st as we invite all team members and coaches to attend the event at Heritage High School instead. You can attend for any part or all of the event. You do not need to attend to donate.
You can find our team link at:
Or go to Relay for Life of Loudoun County and search Teams, we are Apex Gymnastics and the team captain is Mark Mohr.
The theme this year is Board Games and we have decided we are going with “Knock Cancer off the Board”! We have some great activities, games & ideas planned ! If anyone has any board games they are willing to donate it would be much appreciated.
We have lots of great contests for the highest fundraisers and most participants. Check them out below:
~ Anyone who raises over $500 will go into a drawing for a FREE YEAR of gymnastics!!! Yes, a FREE YEAR! Second prize will be an Apple Watch and third place will be a $100 Gift Certificate for APEX that can be used towards tuition. Again, raise over $500 and you will go into a drawing for a free year of gymnastics beginning with July 1st!!! For every $500 that you raise you will be entered into the drawing – if you raise $1000, you will have two entries in the drawing. We will do the drawing after the event when all totals are calculated – hopefully at the Team Picnic in June.
~ We will be doing Penny Wars again and the team that wins will get a party at a location yet to be determined. Penny Wars is divided up into six teams. Each team will have a jar at APEX with their name on it. Each team has a goal to receive the highest total. A penny is worth 1 cent – Anything other than a penny that is put into the jar goes against the team. For example if a nickel is put in you subtract 5 pennies, a quarter minus 25 pennies and so on for each other amount added. The idea is to give your opponents as many nickels, dimes, quarters, dollars as possible while giving your team as many pennies as possible. Penny wars will begin April 18th and end May 20th at 8 p.m. The winner will be announced at Relay for Life.
