Cartwheels/Tumbles for Healthy Lungs will bring out more than 90 gymnastic students to demonstrate how many cartwheels or tumbles that they can turn in 10 minutes. Entering its 34th year, the event raises more than $5,000 annually to benefit the American Lung Association in Pennsylvania and the Harrisburg Gymnastics School. The event supports the American Lung Association in its fight against asthma, chronic bronchitis, COPD, emphysema, and other lung diseases.
