Yesterday’s event started off with a HYPE cheer from the Randolph High cheer squad, followed by a performance from singer Joie Kathos that really got the crowd warmed up. Donna Altenpohl, GSK VP, Public Policy, opened up the program to announce the grant winners. Afterwards, guests were able to meet with the nonprofit partners and sample breakfast burritos prepared by students next door in the Library’s Culinary Center!
This grant is the second we’ve awarded through our GSK IMPACT Grant program, part of our strategy to contribute to making communities healthier across the US.
Our hearts are still pumping from the excitement of yesterday’s announcement, but now we need to get down to work. We will work closely with our 10 Get HYPE Philly! nonprofits and can’t wait to see how we can contribute “beyond the check” to help these great organizations reach 50,000 Philadelphia kids and support them as they lead the way to an even healthier Philadelphia. Let’s get to work!
