Pharmacy, Therafirm sponsor Kenyan runner
AUBURN, Maine, and HAMLET, N.C. – Bedard Pharmacy and Medical Supplies and Therafirm are sponsoring Moninda Marube on his quest to run 3,700 miles across county to raise awareness of human trafficking. His four-month journey started in Auburn, Maine, and includes an approximately 30-mile run six days a week. Along the way, Marube will speak at Police Athletic/Activities League centers to spread the word on his Moninda Movement. Once he reaches Santa Barbara, Calif., he will compete in the Santa Barbara International Marathon. The co-sponsorship includes a cargo van that his crew will use, Therafirm-brand compression socks and sleeves, and athletic apparel. In addition, Bedard and Therafirm will donate a significant portion of proceeds from the retail sales of CoreSport, CoreSpun and Therafirm’s new sports compression line, launching Sept. 1, 2015, to the Moninda Movement. Sales through Bedard’s store and website, bedarddirect.com, between July 27, 2015, and March 31, 2016, will also benefit the movement.
