Date:8/19/2009

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Reliv International, Inc. held its third annual "Walk for the Mission" on Aug. 15 to raise funds for the company's charitable arm, the Reliv Kalogris Foundation.

Approximately 2,400 Reliv independent distributors from 10 countries participated in the walk as part of Reliv's international conference, which took place here from Aug. 13-15.

The Reliv Foundation provides free nutritional supplements daily to more than 42,000 people in the United States and nine other countries. The majority of the recipients are malnourished children who live outside of the U.S. who receive the supplements in more than 270 feeding programs.

This year's event, like past events, took place in downtown St. Louis and included a 1-mile walk and a 5K run. The 2009 Walk for the Mission raised nearly $50,000 for the Reliv Foundation.

Using funds raised in previous years, the Reliv Foundation has built four combination feeding centers and classrooms: two in the Philippines and two in Haiti.

Including this year's event, the Walk for the Mission has attracted more than 9,000 participants, all of whom were Reliv distributors, family members or Reliv employees. In total, the three events have generated more than $290,000 for the foundation.

Since its founding in 1995, the Reliv Foundation has distributed more than $17 million in nutritional support throughout the world.
