Students at Grand Blanc Gymnastics are cartwheeling for a good cause this week to raise money for Childrens Miracle Network at Hurley Medical Center, benefiting a program that helps children battle cancer, birth defects, accident, trauma and just about any health challenge.

Renee Darling of Grand Blanc Gymnastics says "our main goal at Grand Blanc Gymnastics is to teach children life lessons through the sport of gymnastics. We believe that helping others in need is one of those vital life lessons that should be taught at an early age. We are proud to be part of such an important annual event. Our gym and 800 students are proud to support Hurley in this important effort. We want to do everything we can to help strengthen children's healthcare throughout Genesee County, and to help the children at Hurley."

The Tumble-a-thon will feature gymnasts from toddlers to high school students performing forward rolls and cartwheels for 60 second to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. People can either make a single donation, or make a donation per gymnastic activity.

The Tumble-a-thon runs evenings the remainder of the week and Saturday morning at Grand Blanc Gymnastics located at 3166 Tri Park Drive in Grand Blanc.

The Children's Miracle Network is a system of 170 hospitals across the United States and Canada dedicated to providing the best care for sick and injured children. Hurley joined CMN in 1990, and is one of only four CMN hospitals in Michigan. Hurley provides quality, child centered care to all who need it, regardless of the family's ability to pay.
