 Above & Beyond

Team Fundraising Challenge

 Why go Above & Beyond?

The Pink Invitational is the largest gymnastics fundraising event in the nation. 100% of the proceeds benefit Unite for HER nonprofit organization, supporting those affected by breast and ovarian cancers.

The Pink Invitational raises funds for Unite for HER through event sponsorship, ticket and apparel sales, donations, and the Above and Beyond Team Fundraising Challenge.

The Above and Beyond Team Challenge is a fundraising opportunity that enables teams to make an impact on the lives of those affected by breast and ovarian cancers. 

To participate in the challenge, a team must commit to raise $500 (or more) above the entry fee and associated meet fees. Teams that decided to opt into the challenge are permitted to submit their registration one week prior to the general meet registration date. By committing to the challenge, a team commits to raise $500 or more for Unite for HER.

Registration opens September 1, 2024


Priority registration will be given to teams that commit to the Above & Beyond Team Fundraising Challenge ($500 minimum) until September 13, 2024
