Six years ago GK partnered with Unite for HER (UFH), a non-profit organization, to support the funding of breast cancer awareness programs and help restore the health and well being to those in the gymnastics community affected by breast cancer. On September 2, 2014, we took our partnership with UFH to a new level by helping to support the funding of the Pink Unity Grant that is given to qualified USA Gymnastics and NCAA gymnasts, coaches, and judges affected by breast cancer. This program awards up to $1,000 and looks to ease the some of the burden.
Kelly McKeown, EVP of Design and Corporate Relations, tells us that, "GK is proud to continue our sponsorship with Unite for HER. We are honored to have the opportunity to give back to the gymnastics community by partnering with their Pink Unity Grant program that financially helps gymnastics coaches, judges, and athletes."
Since the beginning of the grant program, Unite for HER has given over $60,000 to qualified applicants. In a press release, President and Founder of UFH, Sue Weldon, shares her appreciation for GK's partnership,"A steadfast partner, GK has gone above and beyond to find ways to encourage the success of UFH services and initiatives. Their commitment to support this grant has enabled us to increase our assistance to the USA Gymnastics and NCAA families. We look forward to yet another successful venture with GK and are eager to provide financial relief to those in need."
