Saturday, November 18, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Gymnastics Gym (Room 1120), School of Public Health Building (SPH) University of Maryland, College Park

Join Gymkana's twelfth annual Flip-A-Thon event where Troupers will work to complete as many flips as possible in twenty minutes to raise money for Gymkana programming. At last year's Flip-a-Thon, troupers performed over 1000 flips! Attendees of the Flip-a-Thon will also get a sneak peak of a few of this season's performance acts.

Each year, Gymkana works with hundreds of kids through their summer camp and gymnastics classes, and perform unique acrobatic shows in front of tens of thousands of people in schools, community events, and halftime shows. Their goal is to show audiences, primarily children, that they can have fun and do amazing things through a healthy lifestyle. This fundraiser helps raise money towards Gymkana's operating expenses and expands their outreach by keeping performances accessible to those they impact. 

The event itself is FREE, however Gymkana is a self-funded non-profit outreach program, so efforts are not possible without the help of supporters. Your tax-exempt contribution will help in their mission to advocate healthy, drug-free lifestyles to youth audiences through unique acrobatic performances. We thank you in advance for your support and invite you to come see this event in person!
