Vita-Mix Supports Running America 08 Helping to Fight Childhood Obesity

Vita-Mix is sponsoring Running America, a major event that is also being filmed as a documentary. The 45-day, 3,100 mile run across America is an attempt to break the world record by world-class runners Charlie Engle and Marshall Ulrich.

The route stretches across 11 U.S. states including a kickoff in California, then through Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and ends in New York. The race begins September 12 and ends October 27.

Vita-Mix will be with them every step of the way, making power smoothies that are nutrient-dense and packed with energy to fuel their course. You can be with them, too. And here’s how:

If the route is coming close to your town, put on your “Vita-Mix best!

Five people will be cast per mile to run an historic mile with Charlie and Marshall. You—or someone in your family or business—can sign up and be part of history!

This is a great opportunity to reach people who are health conscious, physically active and need a Vita-Mix now! Your Vita-Mix approved marketing materials make it easy. Here is the brochure and green smoothie downloads.

United Way is partnering with Running America to raise money and awareness of childhood obesity. Vita-Mix embraces United Way’s 10-year goal of increasing healthy behavior in young people and is proud to be a co-sponsor.

Vita-Mix teams up with Running America!

Check out Charlie’s last documentary! Last year he was featured in another documentary entitled Running The Sahara in which he led a team of two other runners 4,300 miles through the Sahara Desert in 111 consecutive days. That event raised awareness of the H20 Africa movement about the water crisis in Africa.
