More than ever, those who dare to be different – those who dare to put their creativity on display and show their distinctive take on the world – need strong and outspoken support.

Donate

The children, teens, and adults who express themselves through physicality and humor every day at the Gym are brave. The vulnerability they show when learning new skills and perfecting their timing creates an environment that breeds lifelong friendships. At the Gym people learn to trust and be trusted. Together, our students experiment with the teamwork, discipline, and imagination they need to go out and change their worlds.

There are many worthy causes to support, but given that you’ve already shown an understanding of what the Gym means to kids in Evanston and north Chicagoland, we hope you’ll think of us. We want to keep inspiring and teaching students to be themselves, to be strong, to be balanced, and to fly. To do that, we need your support.

 


Thanks to all of our wonderful donors for their continued support!
