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 affected by breast cancer and their families.
In 2009, with the support and partnership of AJS Pancott Gymnastics, Unite for HER created the Pink Invitational~Gymnasts Unite fundraising and outreach event. The Pink Invitational unites gymnasts in a USA- sanctioned meet where athletes compete in a sport they love while supporting breast cancer initiatives and learning about the importance of lifelong wellness.
Each year over 3,000 gymnasts participate and 10,000 attendees gather in unity to honor and celebrate the lives of those touched by the disease. Be assured that 100% of the net proceeds from this meet go directly to caring for the physical and emotional needs of breast cancer patients in the local and gymnastics communities.The Pink Invitational is a three-day gymnastics competition featuring over 3,000 athletes from local and national USA Gymnastics teams, as well as a Friday night NCAA college meet. What makes the Pink Invitational a unique and inspiring experience is that these gymnasts find new and fun ways to promote solidarity and display their determination to care for women and families affected by breast cancer. All participants receive and compete in a special, one-of-a-kind competition leotard created by GK Elite Sportswear, sending a message of unity, hope and love. Our guests will also enjoy food concession, celebrity gymnast events, and vendors offering gifts, apparel, and educational information.
