Runner Mike Allsop to take USANA Supplements during 777 Run for Charity
USANA Health Sciences (http://www.usana.com/dotCom/index ), Inc. (NYSE:
USNA), a global nutritional supplements company, today announced that it will
be sponsoring marathon runner, adventure mountain climber, and speaker Mike
Allsop (http://www.mikeallsop.co.nz ) on his 777 Project. His adventure, which
will be tracked via GPS, starts on July 14 in Falkland Islands
(biogeographically, part of the Antarctic ecozone) and moves onto Santiago
(South America), then Los Angeles (North America), London (Europe), Casablanca
(Africa), Hong Kong (Asia), and ends in Auckland (Oceania) on July 22. Allsop
hopes to be the first New Zealander to accomplish what only a handful of the
world's athletes have.
"I began taking USANA products (http://shop.usana.com/shop/cart/Landing )
five months ago and have been quite astounded with the results," said Allsop.
"I have always used some sort of multivitamin supplement on all my adventures
and expeditions. When I changed to USANA, I couldn't believe the results. I
felt so good and so different! (http://www.usana.com/dotCom/difference/index )
I had more energy during my training and throughout the day. Without a shadow
of a doubt USANA has enabled me to train hard and recover faster. USANA is my
foundation-I trust their supplements."
Allsop hopes the 777 Project (http://www.777project.co.nz ) will inspire
disadvantaged children to achieve all their hopes and dreams, and raise $10,000
for the children's charity KidsCan
(http://www.777project.co.nz/index.php/kidscan ). Allsop regularly talks to
schools as part of his philanthropic efforts and says he gets his motivation
from his wife, Wendy, and their three children, Ethan, Maya, and Dylan.
"Mike embodies USANA's core values-we believe in true health, philanthropy
(http://www.usanafoundation.org ) and challenging ourselves and others to do
amazing things," said Dan Macuga, USANA chief communications officer. "He is
also a great role model and an inspiration to us all. USANA is proud to support
Mike's health and nutrition every step of the way, and we are excited he will
be joining us after his global challenge at our 20th anniversary International
Convention (http://convention.usana.com/2012.html ) in August."
Mike will be announcing when he has finished each leg of the marathon on
