Many of my readers will recall the introduction to Nu Skin earlier this year, especially the wide scope of their humanitarian efforts, such as the wonderful Become A Fan, Feed A Child program they hosted on Facebook in January! Kudos to both Nu Skin and my caring readers who did a phenomenal job of sharing the program!
With spring thaw upon us (can you believe Michigan will see tropical mid 80's Sunday?) and as thoughts turn to getting outdoors for health and fitness, I encourage you to consider joining Nu Skin in running for a cause:
Run for Malawi Challenge
Although Nike offers a full line of Nike+ options, you can pick up the basic sensor directly from Nike for only $19.00. What a fantastic and easy way to make a difference, while running for your health.Demonstrate your Vitality and your Difference by running for a cause this year!
In 2011 Nu Skin Distributors and employees will team up to be a Force for Good for the Mtalimanja Village in Malawi.
From January 13, 2011 until June 30, 2011, every mile you run will count towards raising money for the Malawi Build a Village Project. The more miles all participants run in total, the more Nu Skin will contribute. Every 1000 miles that you and Nu Skin total, will equal one secondary education scholarship for a child in Malawi.
Only 25-percent of the Malawian population is able to attend secondary school so your efforts will profoundly affect the life of a young person who has the ambition to continue their education, but lacks the funds to do so.
How does it work?
The Nike+ system consists of a small sensor attached to your shoe, which records the distance of your runs. It communicates with the Nike+ Sportband, the Nike+ Sportkit with iPod nano, or directly with a second or third Generation iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS, or iPhone 4.
Once the Nike+ device is connected to your computer, it uploads your workout data onto the Nike+ website where we have a Run for Malawi challenge page. After you have joined the challenge, every mile you run will count towards scholarship donations!
Participating in the challenge is easy!
1. Get your Nike+ device
2. Create an account at Nikeplus.com
3. Join the "Run for Malawi Challenge" on the Nikeplus.com
4. Demonstrate your Vitality – start running!
5. Upload your miles to the Run for Malawi Challenge
Please share this opportunity to join in Nu Skin's Force for Good with friends and family!
