SIGVARIS SPORTS is proud to announce that when the female winner, Whitney Simmons, crossed the finish line at the “Race for Rescue” event, she was wearing the SIGVARIS PERFORMANCE SLEEVES.
“I wear SIGVARIS PERFORMANCE SLEEVES on long runs because I feel more supported and less fatigued. Also, my recovery time seems to be noticeably shortened,” Simmons says.
The “Run for Rescue” event supports the West Valley Search and Rescue (West Valley SAR), a non-profit, all volunteer search and rescue team dedicated to saving lives by providing search and rescue operations and wilderness safety education to the citizens of San Bernardino County in California. The race is the primary fundraiser each year for West Valley SAR.
The SIGVARIS PERFORMANCE SLEEVES accompanied Simmons every step of the race, helping to improve her circulation during the event as well as post-race to speed up her recovery time. SIGVARIS PERFORMANCE SLEEVES provide 20-30mmHg of medical-grade, graduated compression. By wearing SIGVARIS, Simmons was able to focus on the race and not tired legs.
“Participating in the event was important to me because our good friend is a volunteer for the West Valley SAR Team, and I know how hard he and his team work and how much they give of themselves to provide their services and education,” Simmons says.
The event included a 10-K run, a 5-K run and a kid’s dash. More information can be found at: westvalleysar.org. To learn more about SIGVARIS SPORTS, visit: sigvarisusa.com.
