Neely Spence Gracey to Create Scholarships

Shippensburg, PA (Feb, 2013) Neely Spence Gracey, the Shippensburg native and eight time NCAA Division II National Champion at Shippensburg University and Hansons-Brooks mid-distance runner, has endorsed a new product, LaceLocker, to create scholarships for runners.

Neely enthusiastically says, "I am thrilled to have the chance to endorse 'The LaceLocker' and to work with SSG to make the world aware of this super little device. With so many other things to think about, it really is time to forget that we ever tied our laces!"

LaceLocker is an innovative and unique device which securely stores tied shoe laces. Its simplicity of use (three easy steps) allows users of all ages to tie and wear footwear with laces in a safer manner. Made entirely in the U.S., LaceLocker can be used for activities such as running, ice skating, golf, tennis any sport that requires some type of laced footwear, making the cumbersome process of double or triple knotting laces (which are harder to undo) a thing of the past.

"With the LaceLocker I have the chance to create and nurture the means by which I can give back and help make a difference in the lives of young people. The chance to partner and collaborate is something that I consider to be very exciting. They are interested in working with me to help achieve my goals of giving back and start a scholarship of my own, fueled by sales of the Neely Spence Gracey Signature LaceLocker that they are going to make for me."

LaceLocker is made by STASH Sporting Goods, headed by Carol Stanley. After spending 27 years as an athlete, Ms. Stanley's first foray into designing sports equipment featured a line of baseball and softball gloves which use Palmer Padding to disperse the energy from a sharply hit ball, to reduce painful contusions and bruising to the hand. The STAN-MILL MITT glove is the only one of its kind featured in a permanent collection in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y.

The company recently expanded from online sales to retail stores in VA, NY, and MI. Neely is another step in the company's attempt to get the new product known. They will make you forget you tied your laces! To learn more about the company, visit .
