In May 2011, the Head Coach for the Women's Competitive Program at Capital City Gymnastics Club was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. This young 34 year old women's coach is a daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother, and an integral part of our Women's Competitive Program. It is for her and all those we know and love that we want you to "Think Pink"!
We would like to give a huge Thank-you to all who participated in our Think Pink fundraising campaign. Our competitive women's team was able to attend the Unite for Her / Think Pink Invitational Competition in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania February 23 - 26th. We had over 25 gymnasts from our club attend with over 2100 other gymnasts from across the USA. Our club was the only Canadian team to attend and was able to raise $7000 USD for the cause, which also placed our team in 2nd place for the "Above and Beyond" team challenge for Fundraising. The top 3 teams in the challenge were able to choose the charity that a portion of our funds would be donated to, so we chose the Edmonton Cross Cancer Institute and Unite for Her will donate the funds in our name. This event raised over $60,000 for Breast Cancer research!! This cause is very close to our hearts, well done ladies!!!
