Vicky Bevilacqua-True co-founded Reva Wear a few years ago because she believed in the power of physical activity. Reva Wear makes running apparel and sell specifically via the marathon market (as well as thru Costco and online). Reva Wear had the official merchandise rights to The SF Marathon a few weeks ago where they set up a 4000 square foot store at Fort Mason. As a runner, it has been a dream of Vicky's to do something in the marathon event space, so it is a dream realized! REVA also has a social mission which was paramount to all of the founders. “Kids who participate in sports not only benefit physically, socially, and emotionally, they are also more likely to succeed in their personal and professional lives. That’s why Reva donates 1% of sale and at least 1% of their time to supporting programs that provide sport activities for underserved children and youth”. Programs like Girls On The Run are the wonderful recipients of Reva's generousity. Vicky also ran the SF Half Marathon with 11 extended family members to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They've raised around $150K over the past 4 or so years. We are impressed!
Like JMD, philanthropy and giving back to the community, supporting social programs and promoting good health is part of Reva Wear's core philosophy. We could not have been more flattered to find Vicky wearing one of JMDs Chain Reaction Key necklaces.
“I loved the uniqueness of the jewelry and, more importantly, the necklaces represented real opportunity for women at Harbor House. I love the idea of women helping other women!”
