Pittsburgh Marathon 2012: Photos, Video, and Big Thanks

This was our fourth year proudly participating in the Pittsburgh Marathon. We want to congratulate everyone who joined our teams and finished the race. You are all Runners of Steel! Thank you to everyone who helped with the event and donated money for the Children’s Alopecia Project (CAP). So far we have raised $2,615, and you can still make donations until the end of May.

This year we had the biggest running team yet. Team NuGo had 35 people running! David Levine, NuGo President, ran the full marathon. Alyssa Nard, NuGo Marketing Director, ran the half marathon.

We received some great emails about the NuGo Pace Team. Here are some of our favorite quotes.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to be a part of the NUGO pace team in the Pittsburgh Marathon. Needless to say, it was a wonderful opportunity and time! I want to thank you for your company’s sponsorship of the pacing team. I received many hugs and thank you’s as we crossed the finish line yesterday. Your support of the running community is truly appreciated.” – Sean

I just wanted to say that I was so super proud once again to be a part of this very special Pittsburgh NuGO Pace team, with the fabulous group of pacers that we had this year.” – Marie

Look at this video we made of the kids marathon on Saturday, May 4.

A Very Special Photo: NuGo Goes to Hollywood Studios

We received this photo from Michele, who has been with NuGo since our first product was manufactured. Michele’s daughter, Alexi, was diagnosed with Alopecia at age 5 and lost her hair at age 6. Alexi and her family are very special to NuGo and the reason why a generous portion of NuGo sales are donated to the Children’s Alopecia Project (CAP). We are proud to see in this photo that Alexi has grown into a beautiful and confident young adult. It looks like the whole family is having a great time at Hollywood Studios and enjoying their NuGo snack.

CAP Kids Video

We are proud supporters of the Children’s Alopecia Project (CAP). Their logo appears on the wrapper of all of our bars because we donate a portion of sales to them.

We love this new video featuring photos of CAP kids. CAP is certainly succeeding in their mission of building self-esteem in children with alopecia. For more information and alopecia resources, please visit the CAP website.

We at NuGo have long considered ourselves a family, be it a family of products or developing products for the entire family.  And we pride ourselves on being a family friendly work environment.

Alopecia Areata is a disease that causes partial to total hair loss in children and adults, there is not a known cause or a cure for this disease. It is not life threatening but it is life altering and that is why the “Children’s Alopecia Project” or “CAP“, was incorporated as the only non-profit devoted specifically to children with this disease. Our goal is to generate awareness of the disease, build self-esteem via support group participation for children and provide support to the CAP Kids and their friends and family.  For more information about the Children’s Alopecia Project go to www.childrensalopeciaproject.org/ .
