Frontier All-Star Team Making a Difference in Oregon
Two-time gold medal fencer Mariel Zagunis partners with Frontier
Communications and the Center for Medically Fragile Children at
Providence Child Center
BEAVERTON, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Frontier Communications recently announced its official sponsorship of
Mariel Zagunis, two-time Olympic champion and world number-one ranked
fencer from Beaverton, Ore., as she trains to compete this summer on the
world's biggest stage in London, England.
With Zagunis as a Frontier All-Star Team (FAST) ambassador, Frontier
will support the Center for Medically Fragile Children at Providence
Child Center in Oregon to bring greater visibility to their efforts in
providing developmentally disabled children the tools to better interact
with others. Speech therapy includes improving children's skills with
communications devices designed to give those who cannot speak a voice
to share their feelings and needs in their own special way. Funding is
available through the Great Frontier Donate, a charitable program
designed to give back to local communities.
Zagunis, the most decorated fencer in U.S. history, applauds Frontier's
ongoing visible commitment to local communities in Oregon. "I'm proud to
be involved with Frontier and to partner with them in their charitable
efforts with Providence Child Center," she said. "Both organizations are
dedicated to enhancing communications and strengthening communities, and
this partnership will help many special needs children improve their
ability to communicate and express themselves. I am so grateful that the
pursuit of my dreams has provided a platform to help these kids realize
"Given the role that Frontier products play in connecting people and our
commitment to local communities in Oregon, this partnership with Mariel
and Providence Child Center is a great fit," said Oregon Senior Vice
President and General Manager Ken Gaffga. "From our 100% U.S.-based
workforce to our focused effort in hiring military veterans, both men
and women, Frontier is dedicated to building the kind of strong
communities that make our nation great."
Gaffga further noted, "We're thrilled that Mariel is headed to London
this summer to represent our country. Frontier will join her friends and
neighbors here in Oregon, and Americans everywhere, in cheering her on
as she goes for her third consecutive gold medal."
