Sexual assault has greatly impacted the sport that we love and it's time to rise together and make a difference. GymnastX has created the #WeStandByYou X Band to hopefully bring awareness and show our support to all of the gymnastics survivors of sexual abuse. For every #WeStandByYou X Band that we sell, a percentage of the proceeds will go to the RAINN foundation which is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization and has helped over 2.5 million victims since 1994.
The RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) foundation is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline and has partnerships with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help survivors, and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice. Let's Rise Together and Make a Difference!
1 pair of #WeStandByYou X Bands. The X Band is a safety band that prevents gymnastics grips from coming undone while allowing gymnasts everywhere to Xpress themselves doing the sport they love. Simply wear the X Band around your grips' straps in practice or competition so you can:
- Secure your grips during routines to prevent unnecessary "falls"
- Show your unique color and style in ways that weren't possible before
- Match your grips to your uniform
- Keep velcro grips from getting ruined when practicing in foam pits
- Stretchable, so one size fits most
