Kevin and Hana Gallion: Founders of Gallion Sports Nutrition

Kevin and Hana founded Gallion Sports Nutrition in February of 2020. The Grand Opening was July 14th, 2020! As Norman locals, they decided it was time for Norman to have a Supplement and Sports Nutrition store based solely on helping guests reach their goals. They look to bring in products unlike any in the area and find companies that support brick and mortar. They strive to make every experience in our store comfortable and welcoming. No matter your goals, they are here to support and encourage you! Their motto is: STRONGER TOGETHER because they believe to grow you must unite and support. They are here to give back to our community and help build a passion for a healthy lifestyle.

Hattie Shapard: Founder of The Amity Program

Hattie Shapard founded the Amity Program in February of 2020 to increase interaction between the youth and the senior community and to reduce senior isolation.  She met a lonely senior and came to the realization that engagement and dialogue across generations would be beneficial for both parties. Based on feedback from seniors, their family members, and caregivers the Amity Program feels that we are fulfilling the objective and look forward to working with Riley’s Way to continue our work.

The Amity Program’s mission is to increase intergenerational interaction through a pen-pal program, connecting by phone, an art box program which provides art supplies to senior citizens, and our card-making initiative that sends homemade cards to seniors.
