New Campaign Spotlighting Recovery Benefits of Chocolate Milk!
Lowfat Chocolate Milk – Official Refuel Beverage of Rock ‘n’ Roll races to Los Angeles to remind athletes about the importance of “their After”
The REFUEL | “got chocolate milk?™” campaign is headed to Los Angeles to show athletes that what they do after strenuous exercise can make a dramatic difference in how they feel and perform during their next race or workout. The new campaign “got chocolate milk?” – backed by USA Basketball Men’s National Team member Carmelo Anthony, twelve-time swimming medalist Dara Torres, five other 2012 USA Swim Team medalists, plus 2010 Ironman® World Champion Mirinda Carfrae – shows how refueling with chocolate milk can play an important role during an athlete’s after-workout ritual. Lowfat chocolate milk is simple, effective and scientifically shown to help the body recover after a hard workout so athletes can perform at their best during the next bout of exercise.
Participants can also visit the REFUEL booth at the Health & Fitnessexpo to learn about the scientific benefits of post-race recovery. Dr. Wendy Bazilian, registered dietician, food enthusiast and award-winning journalist will be available for interviews regarding tips for proper nutrition, her favorite super foods and how to prepare for and recover from marathons. Dr. Wendy has been a guest on NBC’s Today Show, Regis & Kelly and ABC’s Good Morning America Health and has written for Martha Stewart Living, USA Today, Allure and more!

- $500 in sponsorship money
- Top notch training gear
- Paid trip to race in Europe
- Chance to star in a national “got chocolate milk?”™ ad
