Giving Back

ICF and Serving the Community

ICF Community Service Philosophy: Providing community service in our communities is a crucial responsibility of all citizens. The ICF supports community service at all levels.  Not only do we give back to the gymastics community, but we encourage all ICF members and scholarship recipients to give back to the communities in which they live.  Each of the athletes that receives a scholarship is already giving back to their communities in some way.

2000 pounds of food donated by gymnasts and their families

3500 pounds of food donated by gymnasts and their families in one weekend!

  • In 2012, ICF gave its first Community Service Award at the Iron Cross Challenge to the gym who raised the most meals for the Million Meals Community Challenge (Congratulations Black Hills Gymnastics!)
  • Gymnastics clubs worked together to raise nearly 2000 meals in one weekend.  In addition, they helped contribute nearly 3500 pounds of non-perishable food the local food banks by donating food for their entrance fee to the competition.
