Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
The MS Run the US 2014 Relay, which kicked off last month in Los Angeles, CA, announces its 2014 partnership with Activz Whole-Food Nutrition. As part of the partnership, Activz will provide monetary and product support for the MS Run the US Relay athletes as they make the 3000+ mile relay journey across the United States.
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, MS affects approximately 400,000 Americans. Worldwide, that figure rises to nearly 2.1 million people. A recent study conducted by pharmacy benefit manager Prime Therapeutics has found that the specialty drug treatment cost for the disease is projected to exceed $50,000 per person annually by 2016. Currently such costs already account for more than two-thirds of the total cost of care.
“We are excited to partner with Activz Whole-Food Nutrition Simplified in support of the fight against Multiple Sclerosis,” said Ashley Kumlien, founder of MS Run the US. “Activz has generously donated funds and is providing 2014 athletes with their revolutionary new line of produce powders and supplements during the Relay. We are happy to have them be a part of this year’s MS Run the US Relay.”
Activz‘s revolutionary new line of produce powders can help individuals quickly increase the nutritional value of any meal. This easy-to-use, preservative-free whole-food powder line – available in a variety of organic fruit, vegetable and grasses options from organic kale, beet and carrot to organic mango, strawberry, blueberry and more – retains all the nutrition of fresh produce thanks to the Activz patented dehydration process, a method which gently evaporates only the water molecules while leaving vital nutrients intact.
