The 2017 Aces For Humanity campaign was launched by USANA and the WTA at the BNP Paribas Open and continued at the Mutua Madrid Open, 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 donation is doubled to $10.
A total of 289 aces were hit in the singles main draw of the Mutua Madrid Open, bringing the total number struck 1,579, and the amount raised to $8,765.
