Our lifelong friend, Maureen Fischler found eternal rest last week. Maureen & her husband Jerry were contributors in the beginning days of the Parkettes organization and helped lay the foundation to start the Parkette gym construction. Maureen had 3 children, 8 grandchildren, a brother-in-law, a cousin & a beloved husband who will all remain in our prayers during this time of loss. We will always remember Maureen for her continued fundraising efforts, especially starting the Parkette store "The Chalk Box", her support of the Parkette gym and her post new years parties for staff and friends with delicious food and warmth of friendship. Parkettes has gained such a beautiful & special guardian angel and we know that she will always be watching over us.
Donations in Maureen's honor may be made to HMS School for Children with Celebrel Palsy at hmsschool.org or HMS School, 4400 Baltimore Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19104.
We invite you - the competitive gymnast, age 6 and up, beginner to elite to join Parkettes and a one of a kind coaching staff at our annual Sumer gymnastics camp. You'll enjoy a complete gymnastics experience with expert instruction in a totally gymnastics-focused week(s) of camp.
Camp runs for 3 weeks in July. You may chose, 1 week, 2 or all 3. CLICK HERE for details.
CoCo Foundation Donation
Parkettes makes a donation to the CoCo Foundation, A Charitable organization with the goal of helping fund research for pediatric cancers. At 3 months of age, Coco was diagnosed with JMML, an extremely rare childhood leukemia. Beginning chemotherapy at only 6 months of age, CoCo had to wait for a cord blood donor. After 4 1st intense chemotherapy sessions, CoCo received her bone marrow transplant. After her transplant she had a tough time dealing with Graft Verses Host Disease, liver problems and numerous blood infections. With support from her family CoCo has now been CANCER-FREE since March 2010 and is living her days as an active, vivacious little girl and is a gymnast on our Parkette Hotshot Team! For more information or to make a donation to the Coco Foundation please visit: thecocofoundation.org.
