Hello, my name is Ruben Padilla. I am 17 years old, from Northern California. My greatest passion is Trampoline and Gymnastics. I spend about 20 hours a week training and preparing for competitions. I have been on the U.S. National team representing the United States for the last 4 years. My dream is to make it to the Olympics.
This year I have been invited to compete at the Pan American Games in Bolivia with the hope of qualifying the United States to the Youth Olympic Games In Argentina. And I also will vying for a spot to represent the U.S. at the World Age Group championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. Thats why I need your support, these are expensive trips and without extra help it will be almost impossible for me to travel to these competitions. All donations will be used to fund my travel, uniforms and competition fees. I appreciate everyone who gives me support, this presents me the opportunity to compete and reach even higher goals. Thank you very much!
