Fueling Front Line Workers

To do our part to support the front-line workers, we reached out to our community of athletes and ambassadors to find hospitals, medical care facilities, fire departments, police departments, and other facilities -- places where first responders could use an energy boost.

We know these workers are taking huge risks to take care of us and keep us safe during this time, and we have tremendous gratitude for their efforts.  

In all, we were able to support 177 facilities with care packages that included:

  • 40,000 servings of Energy Chews
  • 15,000 Energy Stroopwafels
  • 7,800 Hydration Drink Tabs
  • 1,000 bottles of Probiotic Plus Capsules 

Donations have been delivered to all types of medical facilities and emergency staff including: Trauma & COVID Teams, Respiratory Therapists, ER, ICU & ObGyn Departments, Surgeons, RNs, MDs, Pediatricians, Paramedics & EMTs and Cleaning & Kitchen Crews.

We were overwhelmed with the notes of gratitude we received. Below are some responses we found inspiring, so we wanted to share with you:

 

So awesome of GU! I love your company even more now. Thank you for supporting my unit. Our nurses, docs, respiratory therapists, and cleaning crew are all working their tails off now taking care of the sickest kids and babies, and their parents too.

I use GU products all of the time while training and racing, thank you for thinking of applying this to our field. As a surgeon, I often view long cases like a long race or training session, maybe we will do better if we fuel similarly.

Thank you! As an avid cyclist and the chair of OB at our hospital, I am touched that you are thinking of us. I can distribute to our ER, ICU, OB departments. OB cannot cut back operations and must care for moms/babies who are exposed. It's hard to believe but we have some of the highest risk of exposure due to the prolonged face to face contact inherent in our line of work. Our nurses ROCK.

This donation is for my awesome neighbor across the street working the front lines at Kaiser as an OBGYN while pregnant. Her due date is late May. She is awesome and works out daily in her garage across from me on her Peloton bike. You guys are AWESOME!”

Kaiser Permanente: Martinez

You guys are amazing. I work at a level one trauma hospital as an ICU RN and we are currently preparing for the surge. Currently we have around 30 vented patients, but we’re expecting more.

I just want to say how absolutely amazing this is- as a healthcare worker I can't thank you enough for making me smile- this is such a wonderful gesture!

My brother works as a medic for the fire department. They are getting swamped during this time and this would be a great and helpful surprise! Thanks!
