Sunrider Supports Teletón USA Foundation with Fundraising Event
On November 21, 2013, Sunrider International partnered with the Hispanic business community, El Clasificado, and EC Hispanic Media to organize a social fundraising event to benefit the Teletón USA Foundation. All proceeds raised during the event go directly to Teletón USA’s efforts to construct a children’s rehabilitation center in Texas, the Foundation’s first in the U.S. The center will provide disabled children and their families with access to physical rehabilitation, neurotherapy, and other important clinical resources.


Thankful for the outpouring of support for the organization, Ms. Liliana Macías, Fundraising Director for Teletón USA in California, thanked the attendees and sponsors for their interest in this special project: “Thanks to donations like these and people like you, we will be able to open the first Teletón Children Rehabilitation Center in San Antonio, Texas.” Many of the new center’s patients will be children who suffer from brain injuries or congenital spinal disabilities.


Jonathan Beutler, representing Sunrider International, said that Sunrider was honored to host an event looking to help children with physical disabilities. “We feel honored to support the Teletón USA Foundation. For years we have committed to improve the lives of everyone all over the world. Sunrider has been working hand in hand with the various organizations to support less fortunate children in diverse areas worldwide. It is a privilege to have you here tonight.”


Affiliated with Univision and the extensive Teletón program throughout Latin America, the Teletón USA Foundation held its first U.S. fundraiser in 2012 with the goal of raising US$7 million dollars; however, they exceeded this goal by raising over US$15 million. On December 14–15, 2013, the Teletón USA Foundation will hold its second annual fundraiser telethon, which will be broadcast nationwide on the Spanish-language television network Univision. All funds raised will continue to help disabled children who are in need of access to high-quality physical rehabilitation.
