Grimes, Iowa, October 7 & 8, 2017 – Chow’s Gymnastics Booster Club is proud to host over 300 talented young gymnasts at our Chow’s Rising Stars “Flip for a Cure” Gymnastics meet Saturday, October 7 and Sunday, October 8, at Ohana Sport Complex in Grimes Iowa. This two-day gymnastics meet will bring in Junior Olympic athletes, Levels 2 – 5, from 18 clubs all over Iowa, Missouri and Nebraska, and will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Greater Iowa.
“We are excited to host our USAG-sanctioned gymnastics competition right here in Central Iowa,” says Holly Keith, Chow’s Gymnastics Booster Club Meet Director. “Our meet will showcase a full competition gym, including vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor apparatus. “
Saturday afternoon, the Booster Club will present a check to the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Greater Iowa with proceeds generated from the sale of custom pink ribbon leotards and donations made over the competition weekend. “Because Iowa has been so supportive of Chow’s Gymnastics and our Junior Olympic program, our parent-run booster club is dedicated to give back to the Central Iowa community,” Keith explains. “This is our 5th year donating to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and will be our biggest contribution yet with nearly $3,000 in support of breast cancer research.”
“We look forward to bringing some the Midwest’s best young gymnasts to Grimes and hope that the community will come out and support these young athletes who train year round,” says Keith.
Event hours are 8am – 7pm Saturday, October 7, and 8am – 3:30pm Sunday, October 8.
