SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) announced today that the third annual Aces for Humanity campaign — a joint WTA and USANA Health Sciences initiative supporting the USANA True Health Foundation — has raised another $25,000 USD for the not-for-profit charity, whose mission is to provide the most critical human necessities to those suffering or in need. The WTA presented the Foundation with a check during the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore presented by SC Global last week.
Beginning with the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells this past March, every ace served at a Premier-level WTA event translated into a donation for the Foundation. For every ace served by one of USANA’s nine Brand Ambassadors (Caroline Wozniacki, Genie Bouchard, Madison Keys, Samantha Stosur, Sloane Stephens, Monica Puig, Zheng Saisai, Kristina Mladenovic and Alizé Cornet), the WTA contributed $10 toward the campaign, while every ace served by any other player on Tour translated into a $5 donation. Throughout the year the players raised $23,755 and the overall amount was rounded to $25,000.
