Meet Frances

Meet Frances, an outgoing and brave 11- year-old from Birmingham, AL! Frances is a lover of all things pink and glitter. She is an aspiring gymnast, who is always on the go, looking to experience everything she can in life.

Despite some of the hardships Frances faces in day-to-day life, she seeks out opportunities to do things outside of her comfort zone, and gymnastics is no exception. Frances is starting to realize it’s more of a challenge for her to do what her peers are doing, but with her optimistic attitude and zest for life, Frances doesn’t let that stop her.

Frances is a girl with many talents. When she is not flipping through the air or working on her front walkover, you may find her trying out new makeup looks on her mom, riding her bike in Alabama gear, or in the pool practicing to be a real mermaid.

Frances is an Alabama fan through and through. Her dream is to see the Alabama Gymnastic Team in real life. She wants to learn from other powerful, female athletes, who also choose to be brave and go after their passions.

Frances's Dream

We think Dream Kid Frances’ reaction tells you everything you need to know about how excited she was for her Dream weekend!

The Dream Team and members of the University of Alabama Collegiate Dream Team surprised Frances at her home with the help of her friends, neighbors, and teachers! She was gifted her very own DO3 warm up jacket and then was whisked away in a limo to Pinspiration Birmingham.

Day two of Frances’ Dream included:

  • Shopping spree at the Supe Store for new Bama swag!
  • Attending the Alabama Gymnastics closed practice where Frances got to watch the gymnasts warmup and meet the team.
  • Hanging at Big Al’s birthday party.
  • Being a part of Senior Night for Alabama Gymnastics! Frances had so much fun watching the Bama gymnasts compete and win their meet.️ She even got to go down to the mat during team introductions and was announced the “Honorary Captain!” Frances was on the big screen with Big Al and had to show off her own skills by doing a few cartwheels for everyone.

Frances’ last day included VIP time at an Alabama Gymnastics practice! She led warmups and then it was time to get to work. Frances did the trampoline, bars, foam pit, balance beam, and even got to work on her front walkover! It was the best morning spending quality time with the Bama gymnasts and the perfect way to end her Dream weekend.

Thank you to the Alabama Collegiate Dream Team and RxBenefits for making Frances’ Dream come true!
