Did you know gorillas secretly loved guacamole? We didn’t either until recently when we decided to participate in a Gorilla Run!
5k marathons are healthy, fun, and exciting, but running in gorilla suits while chasing bananas is even better! Each Gorilla Run helps raise awareness for a great cause, The Save A Mountain Gorilla Conservation Fund.
This organization is dedicated to the conservation and protection of highly endangered gorillas in Africa. Twenty-eight years ago, there were only 248 mountain gorillas living in the wild, because of the conservation fund, there are now 880 living in the wild- WOW!
This was our first gorilla event and the turnout was bananas! Adults and children of all ages participated in the run, each giving their own personal touches to their outfits, from pirates to safari gorillas even Finding Waldo gorillas! After the run, everyone refueled by chowing down on our chips and Yucatan guacamole. It was a blast and we can’t wait to attend the next one.
Today’s kids are constantly on the go with little to no time to think about healthy eating and snacking. That’s why Yucatan Guacamole launched Growing Healthy Kids Through Sports.
To show how easy, and delicious, it is to snack healthy, we’re taking our message on the road, visiting local little league tournaments. First stop – the Kyle Lewis Memorial Tournament, in Dallas, Texas.
It was truly an honor to be a tournament sponsor for this great event. Set up in our Yucatan Guacamole tent, we spent the day giving out free guacamole, airplanes, team mom bags and Yucatan Swag!!
The response was overwhelming. Attendees loved our Yucatan Guacamole snack packs, commenting on their great flavor, convenient size and many, many uses!! Parents and kids alike were digging into the guacamole, and the kids loved the airplanes and sombreros.
Next stop… Florida! We cannot wait to sponsor our next tournament, turning the attention of little baseball players and their moms to a new healthy snack. Yucatan Guacamole.
Yucatan sends a special thanks to the Kyle Lewis Memorial Tournament and the MYBA for allowing us to be a part of this special tournament. This annual tournament raises money for the Kyle Lewis Amoeba Awareness Foundation. For more information, visit http://www.kylelewisamoebaawareness.org.
