Gronk Nation Youth Foundation Awarded $25,000 From Honey Nut Cheerios' Good Rewards Challenge
Posted by: Gronkowski
Great job at eating your healthy cereal, Gronk fans!
The Gronk Nation Youth Foundation is receiving $25,000 from Honey Nut Cheerios thanks to all those delicious bowls chomped at breakfast as part of Honey Nut Cheerios' first-ever Good Rewards program.
Remember last October when we told you Rob would be competing against “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan and “Pretty Little Liars” actress Lucy Hale in the challenge? Well the seven-month cereal war is finally over and the prize money for their respective charities is being dished out.
The crux of the challenge was to collect the most Buzzcoin – a digital game currency located on the back of Honey Nut Cheerios boxes.
Unlike those three Super Bowls, Gronk didn’t actually win this game, that honor went to Jordan, who was presented with the top prize of $100,000 on behalf of Feeding America, a national network of food banks.
Rob’s charity, of course, was the Gronk Nation Youth Foundation, which was founded in 2013 by him and his family to give back to the community to ensure that young people of all economic backgrounds enjoy the opportunities that they had.
The Foundation is dedicated to inspiring youth to reach their maximum potential through sports, education, community and fitness. Its mission is to help kids stay actively involved in school and sports, and provide them with tools they need to help them follow their dreams and live happy, more successful lives.
Over 460,000 people registered to play Good Rewards, donating over 580 million Buzzcoin to their teams, according to Honey Nut Cheerios. Highly-engaged players scanned over 4.7MM Buzzcoin for charity.
In addition to the monetary prizes being awarded to each celebrity coach's charity organization, one lucky Good Rewards player will receive a personal prize of $10,000, along with an additional $10,000 for the charity of their choice.
