How many cartwheels or forward rolls can you do in 3 minutes? The event is being held to raise money for Autism Speaks. Autism effects 1 in every 88 American Children.

The event is OPEN TO EVERYONE so please invite your friends and family to join on this fun-filled day! We will be selling tickets for a Chinese auction and a 50/50 raffle. Ticket sales will commence Monday, April 21 through to April 26. Prizes will be awarded to the top three participants who complete the most cartwheels or forward rolls in 3 minutes. Each participate will receive a flips t-shirt and a Cartwheels for Autism certificate. The event fee is $10.00 per participant. All checks should be written out to Autism Speaks.
How will the event, Cartwheels for Autism, work? Students will sign up at the front desk and receive a sponsor sheet. Then they will get their family and friends to pledge an amount per cartwheel or per forward roll. For example if your Grandma gives you .25 per cartwheel or roll and you do 8 cartwheels in 3 minutes. Your Grandma will owe $2.00. Your goal is to get as many sponsors as possible! Please submit all pledges to the front desk by May 5th.
