Top Athletes Bring Locker Room Strategy To GamePlan4Me Multi-Platform Initiative

Tamika Catchings, Victor Cruz, Mark Herzlich, Keyshawn Johnson, Dikembe Mutombo, Sanya Richards-Ross, CC Sabathia, Bill Walton and Michelle Wie Share Personal Stories of Success

NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On February 6, 2014, the mobile app and interactive website GamePlan4Me.com will launch with videos of top American athletes telling their own stories of success.  In an effort to bring awareness to the importance of planning for the future, the athletes share their personal experiences about how having a game plan helped them achieve their goals in competition, their careers, personal lives and health.  Champions who have brought their locker room strategy to the website include: Tamika Catchings, Victor Cruz, Mark Herzlich, Keyshawn Johnson, Dikembe Mutombo, Sanya Richards-Ross, CC Sabathia, Bill Walton and Michelle Wie.  Additional high profile athlete videos and messages will be added to the effort each week. 

George Pyne, business leader and entrepreneur, David Kristal, founder and chief executive officer of Augeo, and Juan Sabater, Latino entrepreneur, are leading the private initiative and collaboration among top athletes, sports executives and industry leaders with the goal of creating a non-political and engaging experience that will help visitors as they make decisions about their life and health.  

"Taking personal responsibility for one's actions is a goal that GamePlan4Me hopes to instill in visitors to this site. To hear Mark Herzlich talk about overcoming cancer, or Keyshawn Johnson explain that as a young man 'he was going to be successful no matter what' can give people the courage to stay focused and move forward," stated George Pyne. "The athletes who have given their time to be involved in this initiative understand how hard work and planning have made a significant difference in their lives."

In addition to a growing number of stories from top athletes, GamePlan4Me also includes interactive games, facts on health topics and links to informational sites.

"GamePlan4Me was conceived and created by a talented team of professionals who want to stimulate people to think about their health and well-being," commented David Kristal. "Encouraging young Latinos to understand healthcare options is vital to the continued success of our community," added Juan Sabater. Kristal continued, "We hope to encourage young people to plan for what they know today and prepare for what they cannot predict tomorrow. If young Americans learn about and take responsibility for their health related options, we all win."
