(WJBK) - Hall of Fame gymnast Wendy Hilliard was the first African-American to represent the U.S. in international competition. Now, she's helping make dreams a reality here in her hometown of Detroit. She's launching The Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation to provide low-cost gymnastics to the community.
The program will provide gymnastics classes every Saturday for boys and girls ages 5-17. The classes are at Joe Dumars Field House at Woodward and 8 Mile.
Classes are taught by local, experienced gymnastics coaches in artistic, tumbling and rhythmic gymnastics.
The WHGF program also hopes to expand the program to a larger facility in Detroit within the next year or two.
