Sunrider Supports Rex Lee Run for a Cure
On March 7, 2015, Sunrider was proud to support the “Rex Lee Run for a Cure,” an annual 5K/10K fundraising event held at Brigham Young University (BYU). Now in its 20th consecutive year, the Run provides not only an opportunity to recognize people battling cancer, but also an opportunity to support cancer research and raise public awareness.


Money raised through this event (more than $400,000 to date) has helped fund BYU students conducting research mentored by faculty members. Their research has been published in top scientific journals and has benefited the fight against cancer in numerous ways. A monetary donation from Sunrider will help fund three of these student researchers in this all-important work.


In addition to being the title corporate donor, a “Sunrider Team” composed of staff and friends (including IBO Margie Mettenet and her family) were actively involved. Manning a Sunrider booth, they shared information about the Sunrider business opportunity and handed out samples of SunBar®, Fortune Delight®, and Oi-Lin® Sunmilk Sunscreen SPF 25 to race participants, who numbered over 2,000.


In appreciation of Sunrider’s sponsorship and support, BYU representatives presented Eric Chen, Operations Director of Sunrider Manufacturing, with a special award on stage.
