Tri-California Events & Champion System
Custom technical apparel company Champion System has created the Athletic Celebrity Team to promote healthy lifestyles and bring greater attention to endurance sports.
A.C.T. Powered by Champion System is a collection of personalities from the big and small screens who will participate in various endurance events in 2012. They will participate in events including the Revolution3 28-hour Adventure Race as well as other Rev3 triathlons, L’Etape du California at the Amgen Tour of California, and the Wildflower Triathlon.
The mission of the team is twofold. For event organizers, having members of A.C.T. Powered by Champion System appear at a race will generate buzz. Not only will spectators be able to meet some of their favorite celebrities, but participants will be able to compete alongside them. Opportunities will also be available where A.C.T. members can team up with participants in relay events.
The celebrity power will also help spotlight the many charitable initiatives tied to endurance events as well as help motivate people to lead healthier lifestyles.
The A.C.T. powered by Champion System squad comprises TV and film actors featured in, among others, “Franklin and Bash,” “My Name is Earl,” “The Brothers McMullen,” and “Saved by the Bell”; news anchors and a host of reality programs including “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race.”
Sarah Leshner, who appeared on “The Amazing Race,” was a Division I cross-country runner and track-and-field athlete at the University of Pennsylvania. “Teaming up with Champion System to participate on the Athletic Celebrity Team is the perfect way to collaborate with my fellow reality TV alumni and other celebrities to promote a love of athletics, competition and healthy living,” Leshner said.
Champion System specializes in high-quality custom technical apparel for endurance sports such as triathlon, running, rowing and cycling. The company currently works with more than 10,000 teams and clubs in the U.S. By allowing teams, retailers, clubs and individuals to order a full line of custom uniforms with unlimited colors and low minimums, Champion System is setting a new standard in the custom technical apparel business.
