In less than 65 days, thousands of people from around the world are going to gather in Salt Lake City for the 2012 USANA International Convention. They’ll be celebrating USANA’s 20th anniversary, and you’d better believe that everyone at the home office is hard at work to finalize all of the last-minute details!

One of the most exciting — and perhaps the most rewarding — events is the 9th annual 5K walk/run.

It may be the 9th year we’ve held the event, but this year it will be a little different.

The 2012 5K will be hosted by the USANA True Health Foundationa non-profit organization dedicated to helping humanity by providing the most critical human necessities to those who are suffering or in need.

Even more, it will will feature a heroic theme.

That’s right. This year we are encouraging all participants to dress up as someone you consider a hero while you walk, run, or even leap tall buildings in a single bound as you make your way to the finish line.

Whether you look up to a member of your family, Captain America, or Flash himself, we want you to let the world know by dressing the part! It’s even been rumored that members of our management team will be dressed in disguise!

Get the Deets!

Here are the details for the 2012 USANA Champions for Change 5K Run/Walk:

  • Date: Saturday, August 18, 2012
  • Time: On-site registration begins at 6 a.m. The race starts at 7 a.m
  • Location: Energy Solutions Arena, 301 West South Temple, Salt Lake City

All proceeds from the 5K will be donated to the USANA True Health Foundation.

Prizes!

And as if helping others by running for a good cause isn’t enough of an incentive for you, if you are the first runner to cross the finish line*, you might just take home one of our amazing gift baskets filled with items from sponsors like;

Donate With Pizza?!

Last, but totally not least, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles eat pizza before they better their community, so why don’t you?

Print off this flyer (PDF) and make your way down to the California Pizza Kitchen, conveniently located behind the Energy Solutions Arena, for some great food and to help raise money!

You heard right: Present this to your waiter Thursday or Friday during the week of Convention and CPK will donate 20% of your bill to the Foundation!

*Prizes will be presented to the fastest woman, man, runner 60 and older, runner 12 and younger, and the participant who best represents what a hero looks like!

    Hello Shauna and Shay,
    This year we will have something called a “sponsor form” that you can fill out. However, we are working on getting that form up on the usanafoundation.org website within the next couple of days. Please stay tuned for some communications announcing when that form is up and ready for people to download! Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you both at convention and the 5K.
