The Aces For Humanity campaign was launched by USANA and the WTA at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells this year, where every ace hit by a WTA player at Premier-level events translates into a donation to the USANA True Health Foundation, whose mission is to provide the most critical human necessities to those who are suffering or in need around the world. For every ace hit by any player the WTA donates $5, and for every ace hit by a USANA Brand Ambassador the WTA donates $10.
At the halfway point of the campaign - four months in - USANA and the WTA have raised $13,160.
"I'm really impressed by USANA's commitment to helping others," Eugenie Bouchard said.
"I'm proud to be able to contribute to the Aces for Humanity campaign."
"The assistance we continue to receive from the WTA and its players has allowed us to quickly respond to disasters and aid thousands of people around the world when they need it most," Elaine Pace, USANA True Health Foundation President, said. "We are so grateful for their support."
"The USANA True Health Foundation serves up a winning partnership for the WTA, enabling us to contribute to a beneficial cause," Stacey Allaster, Chairman & CEO of the WTA, said of the Aces For Humanity program. "Some of our most promising WTA Rising Stars and seasoned veterans are USANA Brand Ambassadors, which has significantly boosted the impact of this charitable program.
"Although our numbers for the first half of the year are spectacular, there is still a lot of room to add to that total with many more WTA tournaments to come on the Road To Singapore."
