Alex and Leila Hormozi, co-founders of Austin-based Gym Launch, have been revealed as the largest ever donors to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s After-School All-Stars charity, which held its annual fundraising evening with Westime last month.

The Hormozis said the pledge was a third milestone in a larger goal to raise a total $2.7-million for After-School All-Stars over the next three years.

“As a child I spent a lot of time in after school programming, and I owe my success as an entrepreneur and fitness competitor to the mentors I met through those programs,” said Alex Hormozi, CEO of Gym Launch. “They paved the way for my success, and I want other children to have this same experience.”

The donation will fund free Academic Readiness, Career Exploration, Health and Wellness, Visual and Performing Arts, and STEM after-school programs for low-income, underserved students across the nation.

“I started After-School All-Stars because I saw the need for programs to keep our kids safe and learning between 3 and 6 pm,” said Arnold Schwarzenegger, founder of After-School All-Stars. “I couldn’t be prouder about how we’ve grown to be a premier program provider recognized as the best in the business –– but we couldn’t have done that without a lot of generosity.”

The seventh annual Westime Charity Evening raised $5.3 million for After-School All-Stars nationwide programming. Since its inception, the fundraiser has raised $12.8 million.
