Pau and Marc Gasol are brothers, Olympians and NBA champion athletes committed to making a difference. Originally from Spain, the Gasol brothers have garnered the national and international spotlight for their athletic abilities on the court and their dedication to philanthropy off the court.
At an early age, and inspired by their parents who were both in the medical field, Pau and Marc always shared a passion for children’s health.
Growing up, both were educated on the importance of physical activity, nutrition and emotional health- all necessities in order to lead an overall healthy lifestyle. As young children, some of their fondest memories were moments spent with their family actively practicing healthy habits together.
As adults, they became aware of the prevalence of childhood obesity rates and the severity of this global epidemic. After years of collaborating with several organizations, the Gasol Foundation was founded in 2013, first in the United States and right after in Spain.
