Kellogg's® and Team Kellogg's Team Up for Great Starts
Kellogg's believes everyone deserves a great start, and that begins with breakfast. However, one in five kids goes without breakfast every day[1]. By supporting Team Kellogg's and their great starts, you can help provide 2 million breakfasts to kids in need through the "Give a Great Start" program[2].

  • Each time a fan tags a Facebook or Twitter post with #greatstarts, Kellogg's will help provide breakfast to a child in need.
  • Kellogg's has chronicled the inspirational beginnings of Team Kellogg's athletes in a series of moving "Start Story" videos that follow the athletes' journeys, which can be seen at Kelloggs.com/teamusa. For each view, like or share of the Start Stories, Kellogg's will help provide breakfast to a child in need.

At the ages of 9 and 8 respectively, Davis and White began formally skating together, but their start actually goes back further than that. Growing up skating at the same rink, White had noticed Davis skating during a free-skate event and told his mom that she was the best skater he had even seen.  Little did he know that they would be partnered together years later.  Over the course of the 17 years they've skated together, the pair has gone on to become six-time American ice dance champions, Olympic silver medalists and the first Americans to win two World Championship titles.

Watch Davis and White's Start Story video, "Destiny," available on Kellogg's YouTube page, to learn more about their journey toward the Sochi Games. For more information about Davis, White and the rest of Team Kellogg's, visit kelloggs.com/teamusa.
