5-hour ENERGY® Introduces Limited Edition Cherry Flavor Benefiting Special Operations Warrior Foundation

Friday, May 16, 2014
In 1999, Congress declared the month of May to be National Military Appreciation Month so that the nation could publicly demonstrate their appreciation to our service members. We're proud to support our service members throughout the year with programs like Operation Gratitude and Veteran Tickets Foundation, but this year we're taking our efforts to the next level.

Earlier this month we introduced our new limited edition flavor, 5-hour ENERGY® Cherry. From May 1 through July 31, 2014, the makers of 5-hour ENERGY® shots will donate five cents from the sale of every specially marked red, white and blue bottle of Cherry flavored 5-hour ENERGY® to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF). SOWF is a top-rated nonprofit organization that supports the military's special operations forces and their families though college scholarships, family services and financial stipends.

In addition to a minimum guaranteed donation of $75,000, we're showing our SOWF support in other ways! We were proud to sponsor the inaugural night race at Kansas on May 10, the 5-hour ENERGY® 400 benefiting Special Operations Warrior Foundation!

Some of the 5-hour ENERGY® athletes are also showing their support for SOWF. Clint Bowyer's #15 Toyota Camry was decked out in a Cherry/SOWF paint scheme for the 5-hour ENERGY® 400, and will have the special scheme for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway. In addition, Jim Furyk will be wearing a Cherry/SOWF hat in an upcoming tournament, The Memorial.

We're honored to support our special ops heroes and their families. To learn more about SOWF, watch some of the families of our fallen heroes talk about what the organization means to them or visit the SOWF website.

Stay Fit While Traveling

Thursday, May 1, 2014
Are you on the road a lot? Or maybe you have an upcoming vacation? Either way, your health is something that is often overlooked while traveling. The combination of lounging poolside and indulging in calorie-packed meals can be dangerous. So the next time you’re heading out of town, keep these tips in mind to stay fit and active when you’re traveling.

Explore the City You're In
Going to a new place is exciting, so take the time to go see the local attractions and get some daily activity in. Take a jog around town, rent a bike or walk instead of drive. Exploring the city you're in has numerous benefits, ranging from health perks and entertainment to making memories and cultural gains.

Healthy Menu
Eating healthy is a big challenge when you're traveling since you end up eating out for most meals. Choose your meals wisely when you're eating out; opt for lighter meals instead of fatty, greasy options. Another thing to be aware of when you’re on the road is your snacking habits. Skip vending machine snacks and make a trip to the grocery store for healthier food options like fruit and veggies.

Use Your Amenities
Many hotels have gyms or fitness centers that are free for guests to use. If sticking to your exercise plan while you're traveling is important, look for this amenity when you're searching for a hotel to book. A swimming pool is another amenity that many hotels offer, so start or end your day by going for a dip!

Pack a Workout DVD
Do you have a series of DVDs you use to work out? Bring them with you on your next trip! Many hotel rooms have DVD players and plenty of space for you to exercise. Besides being in a different environment, the best part about bringing your DVDs with you is that it allows you to stick to the fitness routine you’re used to!

Take the Stairs
No matter where you travel there are bound to be stairs, so this is an activity you can do almost anywhere you go. Did you have a long day of sitting in meetings? Stretch out your legs and take the stairs. Did you spend a lazy day lounging by the beach? Sneak in a little physical activity by taking the stairs back to your hotel room. It's as easy at that!

If you stick to an exercise routine and healthy eating plan while you're at home, that’s great! Don't blow all of your hard work by skipping your workouts and cheating with unhealthy meals!
