On Saturday, September 1st, 2018, the We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym franchise celebrated a new SoCal gym location, and the first of the Pomona Valley area, We Rock the Spectrum – Pomona!
Katie Haines is the owner of We Rock the Spectrum – Pomona. Katie and her husband, Ted, have two children together, Malia and Xavier. They have credited their son, Xavier, as being their introduction to We Rock the Spectrum, as they were frequent visitors of several locations across Southern California. After their first visit, they were amazed to see Xavier playing with another child, who did not have special needs. It was their first time experiencing their child truly being included, and they made the decision to bring the gym to their Pomona community.
“Through this journey, autism has made us a stronger family and we have met the most selfless people at the same time. Our dream is for all families to come together for fun, support and to never feel alone.” – Katie Haines
The celebration was buzzing with people from the Pomona community and surrounding areas, filled with smiles, fun and most importantly, inclusion. Fun characters came out to have fun with the kiddos and there were plenty of generous and yummy donations from local businesses, The Cake Mamas, The Rookery, The Abbey, Encore Teppan and more. There was even a ton of fun going on outside as the We Rock the Spectrum Corporate Team brought over the We Rock on Wheels mobile bus! There was even a ribbon cutting ceremony before the big day, with a special appearance from the court of the Miss Pomona Scholarship Pageant.
The We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym franchise would like to extend our congratulations to Katie and her family! We are so honored to have you be a part of the We Rock family and look forward to seeing all the wonderful things you do with your gym for the Pomona Valley community!
