You did it! You made the 2017 Pink Invitational a huge success!
We couldn't do what we do to serve women with breast cancer without you, so please know your support means everything. Thanks to all our incredible gymnasts, coaches, judges, families, sponsors, donors, volunteers, vendors, medics, Laurie Hernandez (whoo hoo!), GK, Mancino, Acure, Verizon, Team Photo, Shade Global, Rothman Institute, Ditech, the staff at the PCC, and event host AJS Pancott for a truly remarkable weekend. If you touched this event in any way, you have our gratitude. 100% of the profits you helped raise by your participation and fundraising efforts will go to support Unite for HER breast cancer wellness programs that provide healing therapies for women in treatment. We hope to see you in 2018 as we celebrate 10 years of the Pink Invitational.
Your Support Funds Breast Cancer Programs
Unite for HER founder Sue Weldon, a breast cancer survivor and long-time gymnastics coach, recognized that gymnastics events offer a unique opportunity to encourage breast health awareness among girls and young women while raising funds in support of women with breast cancer and their families.
In 2009, with the help of our local and gymnastics communities, Sue created the Pink Invitational~Gymnasts Unite three-day competition and outreach event. Hosted by AJS Pancott Gymnastics National Training Center, the Pink Invitational unites gymnasts in a USAG sanctioned Junior Olympic meet where athletes compete in a sport they love while supporting breast cancer initiatives and learning about the importance of lifelong wellness.
The Pink Invitational has successfully raised over $2.4 million to finance Unite for HER programs. Each year over 3,200 gymnasts participate and 10,000 attendees gather in unity to honor and celebrate the lives of those affected by the disease. Please be assured that all the profits from this meet go directly to caring for the physical and emotional needs of breast cancer patients in the local and gymnastics communities. Thank you for your generous support!
One of our most loyal sponsors, GK Elite Sportswear, created a wonderful video about the Pink Invitational and Unite for HER mission. We encourage you to take a look at this special message and see how the fundraising efforts of the Pink Invitational greatly impact the breast cancer community. Click here to view the YouTube video.
Unite for HER, partnering with AJS Pancott Gymnastics NTC, is proud to provide
a gymnastics event where you will find a spirit of cooperation, commitment, unity and
joy as gymnasts compete to help others in need.
