Exclusive Simone Biles & Friends Of The Children Leotard And Turtle Stuffed Animal Available For Order!

Friends of the Children is excited to continue growing our partnership with World Champion gymnast and youth advocate Simone Biles. Simone knows from her own experience in foster care that children often face a lot of hard things growing up. That’s why she has become such a fierce advocate for Friends of the Children and the power of mentoring to create lasting change in the lives of youth and families. She is passionate about supporting and empowering youth in Friends of the Children's program, whether she’s hosting online gymnastic stretching sessions with youth or talking with them in person at her hometown gym in Houston.

As she prepares to host the Simone Biles International Invitational in February 2024, Simone has partnered with Friends of the Children, World Champions Centre, and GK to create an exclusive leotard and stuffed animal that are available for pre-order until December 15, 2023! All proceeds from these items will go to Friends of the Children.

The racerback heart of friendship leotard features our Friends of the Children logo on the back, Friends colors, a beautiful heart design, and an official authentic hand signature from Simone herself! For the non-gymnasts, the adorable squishable turtle stuffed animal comes with a sweet matching bow and a Friends of the Children logo printed T-shirt including an official authentic hand signature from Simone. Both items are estimated to ship in early February, 2024, but if you are a gymnast competing in the Biles Invitational you can also choose the option to pick up your items in person.

We’d like to say a big thank you to Simone and the teams at GK, World Champions Centre, and the Biles Invitational for their creative efforts and ongoing support of Friends of the Children.

Visit the link below to complete your pre-orders by December 15th to help make a difference for the youth and families we serve!
