LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Saturday was national gymnastic day and to celebrate the day, Tall Timberz Gym in Lufkin held a special event.

Over 50 moms, dads and kids packed the gym. Organizer Ashleigh Benton said they celebrated the sport with fun, food and refreshments.

"It's really one of the hardest sports there is because it takes so much strength and coordination and balance and it actually has a reading readiness to prepare kids for school," Benton said.

Benton added that the gym also celebrated their one year anniversary Saturday.
