GSI is proud to support the HERS Breast Cancer Foundation, a professional accredited organization that supports any woman with breast cancer. Established in 1998, the mission of HERS is to support all women healing from breast cancer by providing post-surgical products and services regardless of financial status.  The event brings together breast cancer patients from all over the Bay Area, along with family, friends and supporters.

Marlo participated in this year’s 18th annual 5K/10K Walk/Run and fundraiser at the Quarry Lakes Regional Park in Fremont, CA.  Celebrating life!!

The Mary Lee Sturdivant Scholarship

The Mary Lee Sturdivant Scholarship is inspired by Marlo’s grandmother, who was a strong female influence in her life. The scholarship is an achievement-based award for young women who are entering college. Strong applicants are those who demonstrate their academic abilities as well as their desire to work hard, achieve their goals, and help others.
