2022 Above & Beyond Team Challenge

The Above & Beyond Team Challenge invites clubs attending the Pink Invitational to raise funds for Unite for HER beyond the usual entry and meet fees. Every year, participating teams do a tremendous job raising funds to support our breast and ovarian cancer Wellness Programs and promoting awareness in their home communities. We hope to have 100% participation in 2022 in order to beat that amount, so start early and get creative. We know you can do it! Be sure to share your Above & Beyond Challenge stories with us on social media and take advantage of our Salsa fundraising tool to help you meet your goals. We will also count sponsorships that are a direct result of your team’s participation towards your Above & Beyond fundraising total. Just be sure to let us know (i.e. family business, gym parent company, etc).

All Above & Beyond donations are due February 4, 2022. Please mail any Above and Beyond checks to Unite for HER, 127 E. Chestnut Street, West Chester, PA 19380.

Pink Unity Grants

Unite for HER and GK Elite Sportswear have partnered to offer the Pink Unity Grant program, created to ease the emotional and financial burden experienced by USAG and NCAA gymnasts, coaches, judges and their families due to breast cancer. We are proud to say that as of early this year, we have awarded $60,000 in Pink Unity Grants.

We have rolling submissions for these grants, so qualified applicants may apply anytime throughout the year. Unite for HER is grateful for the unwavering and generous support the gymnastics community has shown our organization, and are pleased this grant program allows us to give back to those in need.


Tributes

The Pink Invitational provides families with an opportunity to pay tribute to, or honor a loved one who has battled breast or ovarian cancer. Your tribute message and photo will appear in an exclusive section of the 2022 Pink Invitational program.
