Shane Victorino Nicetown Boys & Girls Club
Victorino, affectionately named the "Flyin' Hawaiian," along with the support of his charitable organization, the Shane Victorino Foundation (SVF), has developed a long-term relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs in his native, Hawaii. Since 2005 Victorino has called Philadelphia home so he was pleased to bring his philanthropic passion to his new local community.
The daily rigor of running and playing children meant SVF would require the most reliable resources for the project. That's when SVF contacted Regupol America.
Regupol, the inventor of recycled rubber flooring for sports and athletic surfaces, teamed with partner companies to supply a full system flooring solution for the new facility.
"We've been supporting the Boys & Girls Club for years and the fact that this facility was in a nearby Philadelphia left no question. We were happy to support them however we could," said John Aten, vice present of sales and marketing.
Regupol agreed to contribute more than 9,100 square feet of Regupol Aktiv™ recycled rubber sports flooring to the facility and 2300 sq/ft of Regupol Shock Padding for the cushioning under the gym floor, a total value of more than $34,000.
Regupol Aktiv™ flooring is extremely dense, resilient and wear resistant "toughness attributes" sure to serve the educational, recreational and wellness programs of the Boy & Girls club for years to come.
