BURNABY, BC (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
Vega, creator of award-winning, premium plant-based natural health and performance nutrition products, fuels the leukemia research fundraising efforts of cycling team Fireflies West. With a goal of raising $120,000 for the City of Hope Hospital in Southern California, the 55-cyclist Fireflies West team departs from San Francisco, biking 550 miles to Los Angeles, from September 14 to 19. Vega Sport products will provide the entire team 6 full days of riding fuel to help them reach their distance and fundraising goals.
Brendan Brazier, professional Ironman tri-athlete and bestselling author on performance nutrition, formulated Vega Sport to help athletes challenging themselves prepare, sustain and recover with exceptional plant-based nutrition. Fueled by his passion for the powerful role that nutrition can play in sports performance, Brendan Brazier developed Vega Sport based on three key principles of sport nutrition: nutrient density, nutrition timing and speed of recovery.
“Achieving optimum, life-long health and peak performance through alkaline-forming, plant-based nutrition has always been my personal priority–sharing this natural route to wellness is my main motivation for creating the Vega line,” says Brendan. “I hope this inspiring group of cyclists will remain energized, strong and in great health throughout their fundraising journey.”
