(Chattanooga, Tennessee) – As the Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) Athletic Department begins to plan its 10th year of intercollegiate competition, the corporate partnerships from both sides of the Georgia/Tennessee state line continue to grow. In an era, where many schools have to work hard to make ends meet when it comes to athletics, the long-term vision of GNTC’s programs are made possible, in part, by the help of Inn8 Touch Massage in East Ridge, Tennessee.

 

Owner Derek Bhimji has been in business for five years and simply wants to give back to help athletes excel. “I want to help these student-athletes to perform the way they want so they can continue to do what they love,” said Bhimji. “We specialize in sports massage and neuromuscular therapy. These areas are key for the athletes in the college’s athletic programs.”

 

The college first launched its two initial athletic offerings, Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball nearly a decade ago. After seeing their first action on the court in early 2008, it wouldn’t be long after that local companies would begin to see a real benefit in what GNTC was providing. Bhimji is no exception and now one of more than a dozen regular contributors to Georgia Northwestern Athletics each year.

 

“For the past few years, David has come to our facilities to give the athletes sports massages, as well as speak with them about how to rehab injuries they are suffering,” said GNTC Athletics Coordinator David Stephenson. “His steady support of what we do, along with the growing number of others who are giving to our programs with each passing year, shows me the level of impact we are having in our North Georgia communities.”

 

Stephenson and Bhimji have been working on the collegiate partnership since 2013. Bhimji’s business, Inn8 Touch Massage Therapy, is located in East Ridge, Tennessee. Bhimji and his wife, Brittney, have two children, as well.

 

Donations made to GNTC Athletics are made by way of the Georgia Northwestern Technical College Foundation. From academic programs to intercollegiate athletic offerings at the Technical College System of Georgia institute, all gifts to any function of the college are managed by the GNTC Foundation. GNTC Director of Institutional Advancement Jason Gamel leads a team of community leaders from across the college’s nine-county service area in helping gain support of the companies and people the college serves throughout the year.
