We currently have rolling submissions to allow qualified persons to apply anytime during the year. Unite for HER is grateful for the unwavering and generous support the gymnastics community has shown our organization, and are honored to partner with GK Elite Sportswear in a way that allows us to give back to those in need.

Get Started

2019 Official Pink Invitational Leo

Designed and created by Pink Invitational Partner, GK Elite Sportswear, this beautiful one-of-a-kind leo will be worn by all our competitors this year as a symbol of unity and support.


March-In Accessories

  • Remember that the idea behind every gymnast competing in the same pink leo is that they are uniting for the cause, as one team. Therefore, please refrain from wearing any adornments, warmups, or apparel that cover the leo during march-in.
  • The leo does not come with a scrunchie, as most teams create their own hair ribbons/bows, scrunchies, etc. Be creative and have fun with this!
  • The judges will NOT deduct for fingernail polish or small face tattoos during competition.
  • If you are unsure or have any questions about what you planning for your team, feel free check with us by contacting our meet coordinator pinkinvitational@uniteforher.org
  • If you are new to the meet, take a look at the photo albums on Facebook to see what teams have done in the past (keeping in mind the notes above), or come up with your own artistic look!

GK Breast Cancer Awareness Apparel

The leos shown below are part of the exclusive 2017/18 GK Elite Sportswear breast cancer awareness collection. GK will donate 5% of sales for products in this line to Unite for HER. To view the full collection and place your order, click here.

FAQ

  • Where do I go for celebrity events at the Pink Invitational? A volunteer at the welcome table by the entrance to the competition area can provide you with room locations and directions. That information will also be announced on the website and social media prior to the meet.
  • How do I get my daughter’s photo with the celebrity guest? Pictures will be posted in an album on the Pink Invitational Facebook page for you to download, print, and share. Please allow our meet photographer ample time following the event to upload the images.
  • Where do I go to recover lost personal items? The Volunteer Room
  • Where should I go if I’ve been separated from my child? The Volunteer Room
  • Can my daughter’s team wear any pink accessories during march in? We encourage teams to show their spirit! However, we do ask that they not wear team warmups or any apparel/accessory that covers their leo. 
  • Can I purchase an extra Pink Invitational leo? We will announce the sale of any remaining leos on social media and the website after the conclusion of the event. Quantities and sizes are limited, and sold on a first come, first served basis.
  • Can I change my gymnast’s leo size? Leo sizes are final as of November 20, 2018, and cannot be changed. It is highly recommended that sizes be double (and triple) checked before they are submitted. While we do have a few extras on meet weekend, sizes cannot be exchanged unless a gymnast cannot compete in the size she received.
  • Where can I get my score sheets for my daughter’s session? In the interest of being as “green” as we possibly can at the Pink Invitational, we do not print score sheets for our sessions. Results will be updated multiple times during most sessions online at www.meetscoresonline.com.
