Founded in 1996, the Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation (WHGF), a Harlem-based not-for-profit organization that provides free and low-cost quality gymnastics programs for inner-city youth, is presenting its annual Showtime in Harlem in the historic Harlem Armory, managed by the Harlem Children’s Zone (HCZ). This end of the year celebration which will attract a local crowd of hundreds of attendees will highlight the hard working and dedicated student gymnasts ages of 3 to 17 from Harlem, Washington Heights and South Bronx with special performances from the award winning WHGF Gymnastics Team. After two decades and serving more than 17,000 youth in Harlem, WHGF recently expanded to offer gymnastics programs in Detroit, MI.
