McGuffey Intergenerational Gardens- Fall Festival

Since 2018 LUF and their team have held an Annual Fall Festival to celebrate their harvest for the Season, along with growing Community ties.  This event which was held in collaboration with The Cheer Institutue (TCI) has grown in popularity tremendously due to their staged pumpkin patch for youth and neighborhood hay ride.  The event which is apart of a series of Cheer Up Columbus events is held annually in October at our Intergenerational Garden located in North Linden. We are working to end senseless violence and inspire a new generation of Community Advocates.


Helping Athletes Meet their

Full Potential

The Cheer Institute is ran by Board Member Erika Gullick who is a  former OSU cheerleader, NC-State Coach and Professional athlete.  Erika and her staff are passionate about helping athletes reach their full potential, especially those athletes who may not have access to the resources necessary to be successful in the sport. Growing up and throughout her entire career, Erika rarely saw other cheerleaders who looked like her — not due to lack of talent, but rather lack of exposure and resources.

TCI Cares is a gym initiative backed by Legacies United Foundation to help those cheer and tumble athletes who may not be able to afford the fees and costs that often accompany recreational training or competitive cheerleading. Through fundraising partnerships with Columbus organizations such as Nationwide Arena, The Ohio State University, and the Columbus Crew, TCI parents can volunteer at various events to earn credit to apply to their accounts. TCI Cares’ partnership with Columbus Parks and Recreation allows for a collaboration with the Linden Community Center, which brings TCI Cheer Tumble sessions to those who may not be able to make it to the main Gym! The TCI cares initiative also works to provide mental health, financial literacy, educational support and community involvement opportunities. Our motto, “It’s Bigger Than Cheer” encompasses our belief that we are a family working together for a common cause: Our athletes!
