KGA Month Testimonials

“Our family was able to participate in cheerleading, fencing, martial arts, gymnastics, and more. KGA Month allowed us to participate in activities that my children would never have been able to try. My children enjoyed trying new things, and I even enrolled them in gymnastics afterward. My son gained a high interest in fencing and taught himself the rules by watching videos. Every organization we worked with was incredibly welcoming! …We are looking forward to the next KGA month!”  – Crystal Kuhlmann, KGA Month participant
