Todd Grant, Sr. Vice President of SquadLocker stated: “Our tagline at SquadLocker™ is: ‘We Love Teams’.

“Because of this we are excited to announce that SquadLocker will be offering each participant of the Flames of Hope Run/Walk Series the ability to customize their T-Shirts with either their team name or the name of the person they are running to support, for no additional cost. It is our hope that we can help turn this year’s T-shirts into a valued memento that acknowledges the significance of this event and the fight against breast cancer for all those who participate.”

Lynn Simon, Director of Strategic Partnerships & Gloria Gemma 5K Coordinator is excited about the collaboration. “The idea that we are a local organization working with community partners is a very important to us. Our community thrives when we all come together to support the members that live within it.”

“I am looking forward to building a relationship with SquadLocker that will help us better serve all those who are impacted by this preventable disease. We sincerely appreciate their willingness to help us to make the race apparel for the Flames of Hope Run/Walk race series even more of a keepsake momento for our participants and their supporters.”
