Unite for HER, host of the Pink Invitational-Gymnasts Unite competition, is pleased to offer a grant program to ease the emotional and financial burden experienced by USA Gymnastics women’s artistic gymnasts, coaches and judges and their families due to breast cancer. The goal is to provide monetary support to the increasing number of women and families affected by the disease.

In the last three years, Unite for HER has awarded 27 grants to qualifying USA Gymnastics members. Each year they offer up to 10 grants to gymnasts, and two grants each to coaches and judges. To determine if you or someone you know qualifies, the criteria and application for each grant can be found on the Unite for HER website: http://www.uniteforher.org/empower-grants.html.
