Tulsa Gym Damaged By 2015 Tornado Set To Get Major Gift

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A west Tulsa gym destroyed in March 2015 tornado is ready for a fresh start.  

The Glenwood Baptist Church on West Charles Page Boulevard has offered up its gym for the young gymnasts to practice, but it's not big enough for all the Aim High Academy athletes, so some of the older girls have had to practice at another gym in Owasso.

Almost one year later, Aim High Academy is set to announce a $1 million lead gift in their new campaign, "That AHA Moment." 

The campaign is for land, a new building and new programming for Aim High Academy.

On March 25, 2015 a tornado ripped through west Tulsa destroying a building Aim High was leasing.  

There were about 50 girls inside the gym at the time.  The coaches were able to get the girls down to a basement.  No one hurt, but because the girls were barefoot and in leotards, firefighters carried them to be reunited with their parents.

Aim High Academy is a faith-based non-profit that gives North Tulsa children a chance at learning gymnastics at an affordable price.

The founder of Aim High Academy has scheduled the special announcement Wednesday afternoon.
