With incredible sorrow, we have lost one of the greatest forces in Arizona Gymnastics.
Kim Bird, owner and founder of Tumbleweeds, passed away on 11/19/07, after battling complications from Valley Fever.
Donations can be made in Kim's honor as follows:

For your own insight: There is no cure for Valley Fever. The Valley Fever Center of Excellence is the only research center in the United States and is located in Tucson, Arizona. While there are many areas in which funds can be donated, the Bird Family specifically chose this one (NIK-Z Development) as it is a research project helping to develop a vaccination for Valley Fever.
