No. 7 Stanford Hosts California in 'Flip For a Cure' Meet
Feb. 19, 2008
Stanford, Calif. - No. 7 Stanford women's gymnastics will host California this Sunday, Feb. 24 at 2:00 p.m. in their annual 'Flip for a Cure' meet to support cancer research. Fans are encouraged to wear pink and donate throughout the meet.
The Cardinal has a goal on Sunday to raise $2400, which can be possible if everyone in attendance donates just $2 at the event. Stanford will spice up this goal with a challenge of their own.
It is SWG's goal to hit 24 for 24 routines. Playing off this goal we are asking everyone to come ready to make a pledge for routines hit. Any amount is acceptable - pennies, dimes, nickels, quarters- and fans will be able to throw their coins into the designated bins after every rotation. At the end of the competition our helpers will take the bins to Safeway to cash in the coins.
This weekend will also be alumni night at Burnham Pavilion, come out to watch a great night of Stanford gymnastics and honoring the past athletes that have made the program what it is today.
