Certified Hereford Beef® was the official protein sponsor for the 2019 Hospital Hill Run in Kansas City, partnering with the Missouri Beef Council to donate more than 2,000 all-beef hot dogs for marathon participants to enjoy at the conclusion of the race.
As the runners experience the ‘Thrill of the Hill,’ they were happy to enjoy the all beef hotdogs,” says Lisa Drake, Hospital Hill race director. “Many participants commented that the hot dogs were really good, and we were very grateful for the donation.”
The Hospital Hill run is an iconic marathon in Kansas City where participants race around the downtown area. The race, in its 46th year, brings nearly 9,000 people to downtown Kansas City each year.
“The Hospital Hill Run event was a great way to promote consumer awareness of the Certified Hereford Beef brand here in Kansas City,” says Amari Seiferman, Certified Hereford Beef president and CEO. “We were happy to work with one of our valued partners to provide a delicious eating experience to participants at the conclusion of the race.”
