Donation will support more than 100,000 low-income students nationwide.
Alex and Leila Hormozi, co-founders of Austin-based Gym Launch, have pledged to donate $1-million to Arnold Schwarzenegger's After-School All-Stars, making it the largest individual donation in the organization's history.
This marks the Hormozis' third milestone in a larger goal to raise a total $2.7-million for After-School All-Stars over the next three years. To date, the Hormozis have raised $200,000 for the organization.
"As a child I spent a lot of time in after school programming, and I owe my success as an entrepreneur and fitness competitor to the mentors I met through those programs," said Alex Hormozi, CEO of Gym Launch. "They paved the way for my success, and I want other children to have this same experience."
The donation will fund free Academic Readiness, Career Exploration, Health and Wellness, Visual and Performing Arts, and STEM after-school programs for low-income, underserved students across the nation.
"I started After-School All-Stars because I saw the need for programs to keep our kids safe and learning between 3 and 6 p.m.," said Arnold Schwarzenegger, founder of After-School All-Stars. "I couldn't be prouder about how we've grown to be a premier program provider recognized as the best in the business –– but we couldn't have done that without a lot of generosity."
The seventh annual Westime Charity Evening raised $5.3-million for After-School All-Stars nationwide programming. Since its inception, the fundraiser has raised $12.8-million.
Gym Launch helps gym owners acquire, serve, and retain customers. Since its inception in 2016, Gym Launch has helped over 1,700 gyms across four continents achieve success with its no-nonsense recommendations.
