Members of the Opelika Trampoline and Tumbling Program will showcase their talents to the public to raise money for cancer research during the inaugural “Flip for a Cure” fundraiser April 14.
Hosted by the Denson Drive Recreation Center, OTT Director Beth Mowery said funds raised from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
“We want the money raised from this to go to research that will put an end to cancer,” Mowery said.
During “Flip for a Cure,” Mowery said visitors can watch her team perform competition routines, as well as participate in other activities including face-painting, games and other family-friendly activities.
“People can donate by purchasing baked goods, bottled waters. We’ll also be selling (multi)-colored ribbons because each cancer has a different color,” Mowery said. “Our goal is to reach $1,000 … and we already have $305 of that (amount) raised.”
The event will take place from 1-5 p.m. In case of rain, the trampolines will be moved indoors.

The center is located at 1102 Denson Drive, across from Municipal Park.
