Blue Streaks Host Purple Passion Meet; Raise Money for Wellspring
SARATOGA SPRINGS – On Friday night, January 25, the Saratoga Springs High School gymnastics team hosted their 7th annual Purple Passion fundraising meet at the Wilton YMCA. Thanks to event sponsors, gift basket raffles and T-shirt sales, $850 was raised for Wellspring of Saratoga, an organization dedicated to ending relationship and sexual abuse in the community.
In addition to the Blue Streaks, gymnasts from Guilderland, Bethlehem, Shaker and Franklin Delano Roosevelt High School (Hyde Park, NY) participated in the event. Although there were no team scores tallied or individual awards presented, all the gymnasts prevailed as the camaraderie and support for one another was contagious throughout the evening.
The Blue Streaks return to competition on Thursday, January 31st at 4PM as they travel to Bethlehem for the Tumble for Hunger fundraising meet. Saratoga recently completed their dual meet season a perfect 6-0, their 12th consecutive undefeated season.
