The USA Field Hockey chose GlōProfessional, as the official uniform sponsor, representing the first ever corporate advertiser on the Women’s National Team uniform. Glo brand receives placement on the front of the Women’s National Team jersey and podium suits. Jersey-front sponsors are frequently seen amongst golfers, soccer teams around the world, Nascar and IndyCar drivers.
"Everyone at GlōProfessional feels honored to be a part of the achievements of these world-class athletes," said Sean Butler, President of Glo Professional. "We're passionate about helping athletes perform their best when they're competing and we take great pride in their belief and trust in the benefits of our products. The field hockey team shows the power and grace that comes from feeling confident in your appearance, making them a natural fit for the glo brand. We are proud to work with these amazing women competing in the London 2012 Olympic Games."
GlōProfessional will also partner with USA Field Hockey on the Sun Safe Play initiative, an educational program designed to raise awareness on the importance of playing and practicing safely in the sun and the prevention of melanoma and skin cancer. Maria Whitehead, a former Junior National Team member lost her life to melanoma on November 1, 2006 at only the age of 25. Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers and accounts for nearly half of all cancer in the United States. More than 2 million cases are found in the U.S. each year. Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, will account for more than 75,000 cases of skin cancer in 2012.
“Damaging UV rays can pass through clouds, haze and even windows so it is important to wear sun protection when you are inside as well as outside. Sun protection should be a part of your everyday personal care routine including your skin care, make-up and even hair care. All of glōProfessional’s product lines provide UV protection in their formulations, for healthy and proper sun protection," said Bookman.
