A Local Gym For Kids With Special Needs Was Robbed On Mother's Day

On Mother's Day morning, at approximately 5am thieves ransacked We Rock The Spectrum Kids Gym in Pomona, CA (@wrtspomona). Our family belongs to this gym, my daughter Bella who has Down Syndrome & Autism receives therapy there. Years ago, we met Xavier in Ms. Kathi’s special needs class when they were only 3-years old. His parents, Ted & Katie Haines put everything on the line and opened this special place so that our kiddos & families have a place to play & connect. This hidden gem in our community has been a bright light and it’s all because this dedicated family who poured their heart and soul into this special project. This will not stop us but we need your help and support by spreading the news and hopefully catching them, and stopping this from ever happening again to our sanctuary ever again! We are a force to be reckoned with. Thank you!

Message from gym owner, Katie Haines:

"We Rock the Spectrum—Pomona is a specialized sensory gym for kids of all ages and abilities. Opening this gym has been a dream come true for us and we still can’t believe it. It was inspired by our son Xavier who is on the autism spectrum. We wanted to create an inclusive space where kids like him and all kids of all abilities can play together with purpose. ❤️ Many of the families here have become a second family for us and we are so encouraged by the community we have here. Families supporting families. Because we all know it takes, a village. To our We Rock family, we are asking for your support. On Mother’s Day, around 5am, our gym was burglarized by 2 masked men. They broke the glass door and left about $3000 in damages and stolen merchandise. We are so heartbroken but we are resilient. This is a second home for many of our We Rock families. And this gym wouldn’t be possible without the support our families, our amazing friends and local partnering businesses and to all loyal followers like you who have helped us get the word out about our sensory gym for all kids! Thank you for your continued support! Please donate, like, share our story and help get us #ROCKIN again We Rockers!"
