USA Gymnastics has been in contact with the administration of the University of California, Berkeley, and the Cal Gymnastics Forever Foundation, which has launched an impressive initiative to help men’s gymnastics at Cal. At this time, we urge you to support the efforts of Cal Gymnastics Forever. The organization has raised more than $44,000 and received more than 100 letters of support. The leadership of Cal Gymnastics Forever is developing a business plan to present to the University next week, and they plan to include all letters of support, along with a summary of donations and financial pledges.

The details and links for online donations and letters of support are available through the group’s website, www.calgymnasticsforever.com, or its Facebook page. The Cal Gymnastics Forever team has made it very easy to submit your letters, including an online “auto-create” letter system that only needs you to enter your name and contact information and click a button.

Please submit your letters and your pledges now so that your voice will be heard. The gymnastics family has shown repeatedly what can be accomplished when we join forces, and we would appreciate everyone’s joining the effort to save this historic and storied program.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and for helping us make sure the men’s Cal gymnastics team celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2012.
