GNC Golf Outing Supports Local Charity, Injured Military
Date:9/12/2008

Company joins forces with Wounded Warrior Project

PITTSBURGH, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- GNC, for the second consecutive year, will partner with the Western Pennsylvania Committee of the Wounded Warrior Project to hold its third annual golf outing Monday at the Diamond Run Golf Club in Sewickley, Pa., to raise public awareness and funding for severely wounded servicemen and women.

GNC is committed to the health and well-being of all people, especially soldiers who have served our country bravely and continue the mission of helping more people to live longer, happier, healthier lives.

"At GNC, we believe "Living Well" comes not only through good nutrition, ample exercise and smart supplementation - but also by living a quality life," said Tom Dowd, executive vice president at the company's Pittsburgh headquarters. "So we're committed to our servicemen and women, who sacrifice so much to preserve a high quality of life for people everywhere."

For a $350 donation, you can sponsor a "warrior," giving him or her the opportunity to enjoy a day on the golf course. Other sponsorships are available, as well, and all proceeds benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. All donations can be sent to the Western Pennsylvania Friends of the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O. Box 11722, Pittsburgh, PA 15228 (checks can be made payable to the Wounded Warrior Project).

The event will also include appearances by Wounded Warrior spokesman Sergeant Jeremy Feldbusch and executive director and founder John Melia. Feldbusch, of Blairsville, Pa., was left blind from an injury he suffered while serving in Iraq. He was also the star of the independent film "Home Front," which captured the poignant story of a wounded soldier returning to civilian life. Since his 2003 injury, Feldbusch has dedicated thousands of hours traversing the country meeting with and supporting other fellow wounded service members. He has made this his life passion.

The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit organization, is to raise public awareness and enlist public aid for the needs of severely injured servicemen and women, to help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services that meet their needs. For more information on the Wounded Warrior Project and donations, visit http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org. In 2007, GNC helped raise nearly $100,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project programs and services.

GNC has more than 5,000 retail locations throughout the United States (including 950 franchise and 1,550 Rite Aid store-within-a-store locations) and franchise operations in 44 international markets.
