LONG BEACH, CA- Santa Barbara’s healthy frozen yogurt company, ProYo, is proud to announce the success of their booth at the Special Olympic Games June 13th and 14th at California State University in Long Beach. Committed to providing healthy, delicious snacks to kids of all ages, ProYo has been working toward sponsoring the Special Olympics for several years, and was finally able to participate, along with the hundreds of athletes, family members, and supporters in attendance.
ProYo is a healthy frozen yogurt treat that is high in protein, low in calories, packed with probiotics and prebiotics, and free of GMO and gluten, making it the perfect source for athletes pre- and post-work out. The company’s founder, Nathan Carey, has always made giving back a part of ProYo’s mission, and thanks to their recent growth and success, were able to be a part of this cause, which is particularly close to Carey, whose Uncle Steve is a longtime Special Olympics athlete.
In addition to helping the competing athletes cool down on the hot afternoon, while adhering to constraints of many of their strict, varied diets. “Many of the athletes have very restricted diets due to a variety of reasons,” Carey said. “ProYo is nutritious and delicious, so almost all of the athletes could enjoy some, regardless of most of their diet restrictions. This is just one of the many reasons why we knew this would be such a fantastic fit.”
The booth was swamped by happy families, and everyone was touched and moved by the strength and dedication shown by the athletes who have overcome so much. ProYo expects to continue it’s partnership with the Special Olympics World Summer Games of Los Angeles throughout 2015 and in years to come.
