St. Louis, Mo. (Vocus) August 16, 2008
Reliv International, Inc. today held its second annual "Walk for the Mission" to raise funds for the company's charitable arm, the Reliv Kalogris Foundation. More than 3,400 Reliv independent distributors from nine countries participated as part of Reliv's 20th anniversary international conference.
The event took place in downtown St. Louis this morning and included a 1-mile walk and a 5K run. It raised $68,000 for the Reliv Foundation.
The Reliv Foundation provides free nutritional supplements to more than 42,000 people, mostly children, in the United States and nine other countries. The majority of the recipients are malnourished children in countries outside of the U.S. who receive the supplements in more than 270 feeding programs.
The Reliv Foundation used the funds to construct a feeding center and classroom in the Philippines and a new schoolhouse and feeding center in Haiti. The new buildings replaced dilapidated structures in both countries.
Since its founding in 1995, the Reliv Foundation has distributed more than $15.5 million in nutritional support throughout the world.
Reliv International, Inc., based in suburban St. Louis, Mo., is a developer, manufacturer and marketer of a proprietary line of nutritional supplements.
