Go-Pak™ by Alka Pure Rolls Out Pure Hydration sponsorship at YSC Tour de Pink South
Cyclists Use Sugar-free Electrolyte / Alkaline Concentrate Over 3 Days
COVINA, Calif., May 2, 2017 — Go-Pak™ by Alka Pure (http://alka-pure.com) the sugar-free electrolyte/alkaline concentrate, was pleased to participate in the YSC Tour de Pink South cycling event April 21 – 23 as the Go-Pak™ Pure Hydration supplier.
During April 21-23 the second annual Tour de Pink South, rolled in Florida and over 100 riders raised a total of $236,000 as riders raised funds and awareness for young women affected by breast cancer. The ride was to support the mission of Young Survival Coalition (YSC®), the premier nonprofit organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC works with survivors, caregivers and medical, research, advocacy and legislative communities to increase the quality and quantity of life for women ages 40 and under who are diagnosed with breast cancer. The money raised in Tour de Pink rides helps educate, empower, and connect more than 250,000 women living in the U.S. today who were diagnosed with breast cancer. In events over the past seven years, Tour de Pink riders have raised more than $8-million dollars for YSC.
Many of the cyclists who ride these events are breast cancer survivors; in some cases, they’re just months or weeks since receiving treatment.
“We are honored and delighted to support such a worthy cause and help spread the word about health-conscious alternatives for staying hydrated, both during physical activities like cycling and also in daily life,” said founder August Santana of Alka Pure, Inc. “The Go-Pak™ by Alka Pure is a unique liquid rehydration formula that can be added to water or any drink. The 10 mL tubes are easy to carry for workouts and can be added to water, coffee or any drink to provide key hydration electrolyte minerals in a purified alkaline concentrate, without any added sugars, sweeteners, food colors, flavors or other additives. We are pleased that it was received so well with Tour de Pink riders.”
Mary Ajango, a Tour de Pink rider and ambassador said this about the Go-Pak™, “The riding conditions were hot and windy and Alka-Pure was a great addition to my water bottle to really help me rehydrate and keep pedaling.”
“We are so thankful for our partnership with Go Pak by Alka Pure,” said YSC Events Associate Danielle Armour.“ We look for products and companies that align not only with our mission but that is beneficial for our riders and their health, Go Pak by Alka Pure was perfect for the long days in the Florida heat.
Go-Pak™ provided Tour de Pink South riders with water and Go Pak tubes (with sugar-free electrolytes for rehydration) and looks forward to the opportunities in working with Tour de Pink for the rest of the event calendar for 2017.
“GoPak is honored to participate with YSC and the Tour de Pink,” said Michelle Tull, Go-Pak™ by Alka Pure Ambassador. “The survivors and supporters who ride, like all women battling breast cancer, are an inspiration. We’re proud to be a part of this incredible community.”
