Woman Paralyzed In Crash Works As Tumbling Teacher

March 22, 2014, 4:53 PM

GLENWOOD, IA -

Gina Giaffoglione's lifelong love of tumbling could have ended with the car crash six years ago that left her in a wheelchair. But the 27-year-old woman has kept that love alive by teaching tumbling classes in Iowa and Nebraska.

Giaffoglione was a student at Wayne State University in Wayne, Neb., when the speeding car she was in went out of control and rolled. Giaffoglione was thrown and left paralyzed from the waist down.

A tumbling enthusiast since grade school, Giaffoglione's first question to emergency workers at the crash scene was, "Am I ever going to tumble again?"

She returned to Wayne State, completed her human services degree and opened her own tumbling studio in Laurel, Neb., in 2007. Last year, she took over as director of Gary's Tumbling in Glenwood.
