Team Abigail “Night Out” Charity Event
January 25, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm$25
In May 2016, the world lost a wonderful and brave 9 year old girl with a huge heart, whom we’d been fortunate enough to have as part of our extended family here at SCATS since she was only 2. Since 2014, Abigail Caplan-Jones had been slowly winning her fight with a rare form of bone cancer akin to Ewing’s Sarcoma. The battle turned unexpectedly in the spring, however, and ended tragically only 2 months after her 9th birthday. We had established an ancillary fund at the time for her family to offset expenses associated with her treatment. The response and outpouring was both astounding and heartwarming. Over $40,000 was raised for the Caplan-Jones family in GoFundMe contributions and via a number of local special events.
On January 25th we’re hosting another special event in Abigail’s name, and this time to help the countless other families that battle fiercely like the Caplan-Jones’ did and still do for children with cancer.
Please have your little gymnasts and their friends join us on Saturday the 25th from 3 to 6 PM to have some fun in the gym the way Abigail would if she could be here with us. There is only a minimum donation of $25 per child (cash only please, or checks made out to PCRF). Our staff is donating their time to participate that night, Valuetina’s is donating pizza for the kids, and 100% of proceeds benefit the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF). We’re taking sign-ups already, so save your spot because space may be limited.
Thank you to all those that supported Abigail and family on their hardest days and join us in the new year to continue her valiant battle. We look forward to a full gym in her name.
