Zachary Post was born and raised in St. Louis. Always a fan of combat sports, it was only natural that he would get involved in it someway. He, along with his brother and two best friends, launched Go Hard Brand in September of 2010.

"Go Hard is an action sports brand that inspires a winner's emotion," Post said.

Zachary and his partners have ingrained their philosophies into all of the aspects their brand represents.

"Hard work, dedication, resilience, pursuit of happiness; roll all that into a t-shirt and you have Go Hard Brand," Post said.

Go Hard has a large selection of tees and shorts, including their new Elite Series of fight shorts, for sale on their website.

Post and company have now poured their attention into a new and noteworthy campaign; Go Hard for a Cure, a fundraiser for the Susan G Komen foundation.

In 2011, there were more than 2.6 million breast cancer survivors in the US. Chances are high that you or someone you know has been effected by this terrible disease.

Post was personally effected by this cause when his mother-in-law was diagnosed. He witnessed the struggle she went through while defeating cancer and felt compelled to try and help in some manner.

Go Hard designed two, beautiful t-shirts and will be donating part of a the proceeds to charity. Survivor and Supporters shirts are available now on their website, and will be in stock on June 16 if you want to have them mailed, or you can pick them up at the Go Hard for a Cure Event.

Go Hard Brand will be donating $5 of every shirt sold to the Susan G Komen Foundation. Since its inception in 1982, Komen has donated over $1.9 Billion to cancer research.

In addition to the t-shirts Go Hard is also organizing The Go Hard For A Cure event will take place on June 22nd. The event is the day before the Susan G Komen race in downtown St. Louis and will be used to build awareness and help promote a healthy life style
