Pink Invitational

February 17-19, 2023

Be a part of the Largest Gymnastics Fundraising Event in the US

The Pink Invitational is a three-day gymnastics competition featuring over 4,000 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 and ovarian cancers. 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.

100% of the Pink Invitational profits benefit the Unite for HER Wellness Program, supporting breast cancer and ovarian cancer patients nationwide.
