Carroll Gymnastics competitive teams had a solid showing at the Pink Invitational meet in Philadelphia on Feb. 23-25.

The event unites gymnasts in a USA-sanctioned meet where athletes compete in a sport they love while supporting breast cancer initiatives and learning about the importance of lifelong wellness. This year, the Carroll Gymnastics families donated $1600 from funds raised through bingo, a cartwheel-a-thon and other team efforts throughout the year.
