Discount cards help gymnastics club

The KH Gymnastics Club is bringing back a popular fundraiser this year, to help with the purchase of some important equipment for the club.

The Kicking Horse Gymnastics Club is bringing back a popular fundraiser this year, to help with the purchase of some important equipment for the club.

They have teamed up with local businesses to offer a discount card that will offer deals and discounts to the cardholders.

“We’re trying to make it an annual thing, it went over very well last year,” said Monica Parkinson, a parent and volunteer.

This year 11 local businesses, including grocery stores, retail stores, and restaurants have participated, offering the cardholders a variety of perks. Some businesses offer multiple modest discounts, some offer discounts on certain products, and some offer a higher, one-time only discount.

The club was recently able to purchase some uneven bars for their space, and there are a few equipment purchases they would still like to make. A bigger project, the campaign for which hasn’t begun yet, will be to purchase a spring floor for the club.

Kicking Horse Gymnastics Club only recently opened up their own facility, and are now able to keep and maintain their own equipment.

“These purchases go a long way to helping us increase the competition level of our gymnasts,” said Parkinson.

The cards are on sale for $20, and are available at Top Notch Clothing, and Parky’s Heating and Cooling. The gymnasts themselves will also be setting up booths around town throughout June to sell the cards.

“It’s been a great initiative for us. And I think it’s also been great for the businesses,” said Parkinson.

“It can get people through the door of their business who might not otherwise shop there.”
