A Year of Rebuilding…
2011 was a year of many ups and downs for Japan, but the one that really sticks in our minds is the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Northern Japan in the spring of last year.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since the event. The situation is much better now but I know that in a lot of the northern areas, people are still working hard to rebuild. The other day, I received an invitation from the Consul General of Japan for a gathering in San Francisco to remember those who were affected by the event.
I’ll be attending the gathering on behalf of everyone from the NorCal and Region 1 gymnastics communities that helped donate. At this time, I wanted to say another thank you to everyone that put in money and helped support the cause!
