Healthy U Chosen as Exclusive Concessions Provider for McHenry's 1st Annual Kicks 4 Kids Youth Charity Soccer Tournament,

Local Company Goes Beyond Providing Healthy Vending to Schools and Businesses to Bring Fresh, Locally Sourced, All-Natural Snacks and Beverages to Kicks 4 Kids Community Event

McHenry, IL (Vocus) June 17, 2010 -- Premier Wellness Chiropractic in association with Skills First Soccer and the McHenry Area Soccer Federation have partnered with McHenry’s Healthy U to be the exclusive provider of healthy sandwiches, snacks and beverages at the 1st annual Kicks 4 Kids soccer tournament on June 26th and 27th at McHenry Middle School. All proceeds from the 2010 tournament will be dedicated to the Options for Advocacy organization which has a mission to enhance and protect the lives of children and adults with disabilities.

“With childhood obesity rates tripling in less than 30 years, we know getting our kids excited about wellness, physical activity and healthy eating has to be a top priority,” said Dr. Anthony J. Ebel, a pediatric and wellness-certified chiropractor at Premier Wellness Chiropractic. “The Kicks for Kids event not only promotes wellness for our community, but brings the whole community together to support a worthy cause.”

“In looking for a concession’s partner, we were searching for one with like-minded goals,” said Dr. Ebel. “With a mission to bring healthy, all-natural snacks and beverages to Chicagoland’s schools, businesses and community events, choosing Healthy U for the first Kicks for Kids youth soccer tournament was a no brainer.”

McHenry, IL-based Healthy U, started as a healthy, all-natural vending company, was founded in the spring of 2009 and is the brainchild of pharmaceutical industry veteran T Hephner.

“I started Healthy U in response to an unmet need I saw with my own kids,” said Hephner. “Unless we packed healthy snacks for them ‘to go,’ they didn’t have many choices at school or during extracurricular activities that weren’t full of sugar or processed ingredients. We are thrilled to be expanding our business beyond healthy vending to providing all-natural, healthy snacks and beverages at community events like the Kicks for Kids soccer tournament.”

The Kicks for Kids youth soccer tournament will be co-ed for children ages 6-14. There will be 7-12 players per team (no travel players please). The tournament will take place at McHenry Middle School, 2120 West Lincoln Road, McHenry, IL 60051, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more information about the youth soccer tournament or how to become a sponsor visit Kicks for Kids, contact Dr. Derek Kasten at drderek(at)premierwellnesschiro(dot)com or call (815) 455-8213.
