Why Attend Convention? Dressing Up as a Superhero

Not counting today, we’ve got exactly two weeks until Convention! In anticipation of our biggest celebration ever, I’m counting down my top five reasons why you can’t miss our 20th Anniversary International Convention. Make sure to check back next week for reason No. 1. Read reasons No. 3, No. 4 and  No. 5.

Reason No. 2: How often do you get to dress up as a superhero?

Are you ready to be a hero? It’s time to jump a building in a single bound, run faster than a speeding bullet, and be more powerful than a locomotive. Or … you could just join me for the Champions for Change 5K run/walk at Convention this year.

The Saturday morning run has long been an important part of the International Convention experience. It’s a time when we can all come together and show our support for helping make people healthier all over the planet. This year I am excited for our first USANA Champions for Change 5K, where your registration fee and all of the money we raise will be donated to the USANA True Health Foundation.

I am so proud of the USANA True Health Foundation and all that we are going to accomplish. We established the foundation to make it easier for USANA’s worldwide family to make a real difference in the world with their charitable donations.

The best part is, you can choose the work your donation will support. Through the foundation, you can donate to our long-time partner in the fight against childhood hunger, Children’s Hunger Fund, or you may donate to the General Fund, which includes partnerships with groups that share our vision, including HealthCorps and the disaster response partner we will be revealing at Convention. In addition, a new fund will be added that is very near and dear to the USANA family.

What’s great about the USANA True Health Foundation is that in addition to the work we’ll be doing, we’ve made it so that anyone can donate. Anyone of any age, living anywhere in the world, can donate to the incredible cause of helping people live happier and healthier lives. But the real power comes from a lot of people giving a little each month. Just $10 on Autoships from thousands of people will save countless lives.

To make our first Champions for Change 5K memorable, our team at USANA came up with a great idea to really reflect what we hope to be doing. It’s all about being a superhero! Bring a cape, grab a superhero mask, and run as the superhero you are! So, what are you going to wear?

    Only a few more days! Can’t wait to see everyone’s superhero costumes. If you’re running, take a photo and share it on our Facebook page or tweet it using the #USANA12 hash tag.
