Industry members turned out Monday morning to put some miles under their running shoes, spend time with industry colleagues and raise funds in support of the Promotional Product Education Foundation (PPEF). SuccessFit, hosted by e-publication, was introduced at The PPAI Expo 2015 as an ongoing program that presents information on how fitness affects personal lives and business success.

PPAI Board Member Dale Denham MAS+ offered to donate $250 to PPEF should anyone beat incoming PPAI Chair Tom Goos, MAS, and PPAI Chairman and CEO, Paul Bellantone, CAE, agreed to match that challenge. Ultimately, Goos won but the event still raised more than $3,000 for PPEF, and donations are still coming in. Donations in any amount are welcomed and can be made directly to PPEF.

Participation in SuccessFit was free but those who made a $25 donation to PPEF will receive a collection of SuccessFit4Life! products provided by participating suppliers, including SnugZ USA, Pro Towels, Halls & Company, Prime Line, Ad-A-Day Company, Inc., Southern Plus, HTT Headwear, BIC Graphic and AdCapitol. AIA Corporation oversaw the administrative details of the program.

The SuccessFit4Life! Program was launched to encourage anyone at any age to be more active in their lives. Click here to visit the SuccessFit4Life! Facebook group for the industry.
