Arson closes Apollo School of Gymnastics
Apollo School of Gymnastics, in Clearwater, Florida was attacked by an arsonist on Saturday, June 28, 2014. Shortly after their Open Gym ended, the fire was intentionally started in the middle of the gym and the smoke and water damage has shut the school down. They are currently operating their summer camp program out of a local church and looking for a temporary facility to reopen the class and team programs.
Their insurance coverage did not cover the loss and any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Service is Wednesday, June 25th with visitation 1:00-3:00 at Sam Jones United Methodist Church, Cartersville, GA. Service follows at 3:00. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made to Region 8 USA Gymnastics for the Tim Rand Legends Fund.
Please make checks payable to Region 8 USAG. Please write TRLF on memo/for line of check. Mail to 394 Stonebridge Road, Birmingham, AL. 35210.

The Tim Rand Legends Fund supports the athletes by paying their entry fee to their national competition each year. We have been honored to be able to pay these entry fees for our athletes for the past 5 years.
