Leading sports marketing agency, Stillwater Sports has welcomed Vital Health Foods as a partner to eleven major sporting events in 2019.
“We are proud to partner with South Africa’s leading vitamin and health supplement brand,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports. “Catering for entrants of various ages, our events focus on a healthy lifestyle while encouraging people to enjoy the outdoors. With Vital as a partner in 2019 we look forward to growing this trend and welcoming more participants to all eleven of our events which include: the PUMA School of Speed (of which there are five), Totalsports Women’s Race (Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town) and the ABSA Run Your City Series (ABSA Cape Town 12 ONERUN, ABSA Joburg 10K CITYRUN and ABSA Durban 10K CITYSURFRUN).
“As a health company, Vital Health Foods has taken care of the health and wellness of South Africans for over 70 years,” says Vanessa Sew Chung Hong, Marketing Executive at Vital Health Foods. “The Vital portfolio includes vitamins, minerals, health supplements and foods. Partnering with Stillwater Sports will offer us the opportunity to reach a broad consumer group who don’t just compete in sporting events to win, but those who strive towards healthy and active lifestyles. Stillwater Sports’ events are hosted across South Africa and are enjoyed by athletes from all walks of life.”
“There are misconceptions around taking vitamins and supplements,” continues Sew Chung Hong. “By partnering with Stillwater Sports and being present at the events, we hope to educate consumers about their health needs and requirements to support busy and demanding lifestyles. We also hope that participants and their families will be better equipped to take care of their health.”
