CINCINNATI— Gravity Diagnostics, a clinical laboratory company in Northern Kentucky, has partnered with the University of Cincinnati for a five-year naming rights contract on the West Pavilion (300) Club Level at Nippert Stadium.
“We are extremely grateful for (CEO) Tony Remington, Julie Brazil (COO and co-founder) and Gravity Diagnostics for this generous gift,” Director of Athletics John Cunningham said. “Their assistance during such a challenging time helped keep us safe and put our student-athletes in the best position to succeed. Gravity’s commitment to the Bearcats community will play a significant role in each of our futures, and we are eager to continue this momentum.”
The area formerly held the Scholarship Club name. Gravity has held a strong bond with UC since Fall 2020 when it performed a large percentage of the department’s COVID tests. In addition to the five-year deal, the company has given $50,000 to the Next Level Success Fund.
“Gravity is proud to partner with the University of Cincinnati and their athletics department,” Remington said. “Over the last three years, we have hired over 400 people, many of whom are UC graduates. These graduates have been a huge part of our success. We also highly value athletics and the role they play in terms of teaching student-athletes life skills that prepare them for the workforce after they graduate.”
The Next Level Success Fund, part of the $100 million Day One Ready campaign, was created to provide the necessary resources for UC’s student-athlete support.
