LOS ANGELES, CA, September 2, 2015 – GTX Corp. (OTCBB: GTXO), an IoT platform in the personal location GPS wearable technology and wandering assistive technology business, announced that former National Football League (NFL) running back Clinton Portis is joining the GTX Corp team as one of the Company’s newest athlete brand endorsers.
Portis is currently a Redskins analyst for ESPN 980, active speaker and philanthropist, however he is best known for his seven seasons as starting running back for the Washington Redskins. He is considered among the best players in Redskins history, boasting two Pro Bowl appearances, a Second Team All-Pro honor, and five NFL rushing records that still stand today. In 2012, Portis announced his retirement from the NFL just 77 yards short of the 10,000 rushing mark, ranking him as one of the top 20 running backs of all time and was inducted into the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame in 2014.
Portis joined GTX Corp as a brand ambassador to further his involvement in brain health and safety while pursuing his passion to help the elderly and youth. His role will include supporting the GTX team in furthering education and awareness of using innovative technologies like GTX Corp’s patented GPS SmartSole, that ensure the safe and quick recovery of those who have a tendency to wander and get lost.
“I have always had a passion for bringing brain health awareness and overall safety to both children and seniors,” stated Portis. “Becoming a spokesperson for an innovative product like the GPS SmartSole and all of GTX’s wearable technology offerings is very rewarding for me. I look forward to reaching out to more communities and continuing to uphold my ever-important duty as an ambassador for safety and wellness, at any age.”
“Clinton brings passion and commitment to everything he does which is exactly the kind of person we are honored to have on our winning team of ambassadors, especially as September is Alzheimer’s awareness month we look forward to Clinton helping us spread the word and working together for many years to come,” stated GTX Corp CEO, Patrick Bertagna.
