Stonyfield to Sponsor Boston Marathon

By Community | January 29, 2014

Leading organic yogurt maker Stonyfield has become an official sponsor of the 118th Boston Marathon.

As part of its sponsorship, the New England company is forming Team Stonyfield, allowing qualified runners who missed the entry cutoff for the historic race to participate. 

Through Race Weekend, Stonyfield ambassadors will appear around the course – from the Athletes’ Village in Hopkinton to the Family Meeting Area in Boston – handing out samples of Stonyfield Greek Yogurt, a favorite among runners looking for the very best source of protein to fuel their workouts that’s also organic and made without the use of toxic persistent pesticides and GMOs.

“We’re New Englanders with deep roots here. We promote healthy eating and living and even have an employee running team that competes in races across the region – Stonyfield and the Boston Marathon are made for each other,” said Gary Hirshberg, co-founder of Stonyfield. “We want to be out there fueling all of the participating runners with our healthy yogurts and lending our spirit to the fans watching from Boston – and everywhere. This year especially, we want to be part of making this the best Marathon yet.”
