What is the Pink Ribbon Cheer Classic?

The Pink Ribbon Cheer Classic is a cheer and dance exhibition to raise money for Zeta Tau Alpha’s Philanthropy: breast cancer awareness, research, and education. The event was created by Kim Caputo James, who hoped to combined her two passions, her sorority and cheerleading, to raise money and awareness for breast cancer awareness, ZTA's National Philanthropy. Since its inception in 2001, the event has raised over 1 million dollars for the cause. The day is filled with spirit as teams cheer and dance in honor of those they know who have been affected by breast cancer. Competitive teams use this as a “Dress Rehearsal” as they prepare for their competition season and non-competitive teams take this opportunity to showcase their talent outside of the games setting. Teams of all age levels and abilities are invited to participate and unite as one in a positive atmosphere.
