AUSTIN, TX – Alex and Leila Hormozi, co-founders of Austin-based Gym Launch, pledge to donate $1-million to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s After-School All-Stars, making it the largest donation in the organization’s history. The pledge was made at the seventh annual Westime Charity Evening at Schwarzenegger’s Los Angeles home.
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.
