Gymnastics Group Joins the Fight Against Diabetes

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- One Las Vegas area gymnastic group is flipping for a cure this weekend to help fight type I diabetes.

The Flip for a Cure Gymnastics Competition is this Saturday and Sunday at the Go For It USA gym in North Las Vegas. Each team will be competing for gymnastics scores and trophies, but they will also be competing to raise the most money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Teams competing at the meet include Barefoot Gymnastics from Utah, KIPS Gymnastics from California and from Las Vegas, Go For It USA Perfectors, Gymcats, Desert Gymcats, Brown's, Flip For Me and Sasso's.

For each athlete entered, Go For It USA will donate $5 to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Anyone can support the team of their choice simply by going online. Click the "Donate" button, and put the name of the team you want to support in the search menu.

Spectators and attendees will also have an opportunity to donate as they enter, and can do so in the name of any of the gyms competing. At the end of the meet, the team with the most money raised in their name will receive a trophy. All of the money donated goes to JDRF.

Go For It USA is located at 3105 Coleman Street in North Las Vegas.
