Commitment by

Samsung Electronics America, Inc.

In 2011, Samsung Electronics America committed to support the Ready, Set, Gold! (RSG!) Program, both financially and through the provision of expertise and skills. RSG!'s mission resonates with Samsung's philanthropic platform, Hope for Children, which emphasizes Samsung's commitment to help children live smarter, healthier, and more sustainable lives. RSG! pairs up Southern Californian Olympians and Paralympians with urban LAUSD (Los Angeles Unified School District) schools to inspire and encourage students to adopt healthy lifestyles and fitness habits through events and presentations. With this program, RSG! aims to help reduce childhood obesity and diabetes in the Los Angeles area. To date RSG! is in 50 schools throughout the Los Angeles area and reaches 25,000 students.
