GNC Live Well Foundation
In 2004, members of senior management at GNC formed the GNC Live Well Foundation - GNC's own corporate charitable foundation - to raise money for the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Free Care Fund. The anchor fundraising event of the Live Well Foundation is the GNC Charity Golf Outing, which is sponsored by GNC and organized by GNC employees every fall. The first and second annual golf tournaments were held at Quicksilver Golf Course in Midway, Pa., outside of Pittsburgh.
Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh serves as a world-class resource for the families of Western Pennsylvania, neighboring states and beyond. For more than 110 years, Children's Hospital has been the only hospital in the Pittsburgh region dedicated solely to caring for infants, children and young adults. In today's challenging economic climate, Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh relies more than ever on the generous spirit of individuals, businesses and foundations to provide funding. The proceeds from GNC's Annual Charity Golf Outing benefit the hospital, and the generous support of those who sponsor and participate in this annual event help maintain a wonderful tradition of caring in Western Pennsylvania.
