Gymnastics clubs from the South Texas region participated in a Handstand Together event on June 4 to raise money to assist the American Red Cross in the relief efforts in Japan. More than 150 boys and girls participated in the handstand event that took place in Nelson Wolff Stadium prior to a San Antonio Mission’s baseball game. The event earned $2051 and will be donated to relief efforts in Japan, which is still recovering from a huge earthquake and tsunami in March.

Stacey Campbell, a founding board member of Handstand Together, was ecstatic that the organization was able to sell more than 300 tickets.
