The California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), the creator of GOT MILK? and TOMA LECHE are hosing a free, family fun-filled event on Saturday, Jun. 9, 2012 in Wilmington to promote positivity and a healthy lifestyle. Walkathon Positivois a 5K community event designed to raise awareness about the importance of exercise as a family unit and proper nutrition with milk.
“We want to sponsor an event that truly embodies our mission: to walk the walk when it comes to promoting fitness and nutrition,” says Steve James, executive director of the CMPB. “A healthy family is one that exercises together and takes in nutrient-rich foods like milk for strong bones, teeth, muscles, hair and nails.”
At the end of the walk, attendees will not only be treated to ice cold low fat chocolate milk to help replenish the muscles post-workout. Aside from receiving their very own Walkathon Positivo t-shirts, families will also have a chance to win prizes, enjoy hosted entertainment by Radio Disney AM 1110 including a meet and greet with Bella Thorne and Zendaya, stars of Disney Channel’s hit series “Shake It Up.” The program will end with a community dance promoting positivity, which event goers can now start learning at home by logging on to www.walkathonpositivo.com.
“We are excited to host Walkathon Positivo in Wilmington,” says Los Angeles City Council Member Joe Buscaino. “It will be a day to celebrate positivity and our families in our great city.”
