Reese’s Inspiration

Committed to influencing positive change, Revolve has led two major philanthropic efforts that are especially close to Reese. His brother was diagnosed with PKU – a rare genetic disease – as an infant.  So Revolve established an endowment with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh that focuses on funding medical research and family support for those affected by PKU.

Inspired by Reese’s son, who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), Revolve also sponsored fundraisers that raised more than $12,000 last year  for the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of JDRF, the world’s leading fundraiser for T1D.
