Herbalife (NYSE:HLF) , a leading global nutrition company, has announced that it will once again be the Official Nutrition Sponsor of the 2014 YMCA Stair Climb for Los Angeles. This is the 21st year of the event, which will see thousands of people climb the 1,664 stairs to the top of the US Bank Tower in Downtown Los Angeles – the tallest building west of the Mississippi – to raise vital funds in support of critical programs for children and families in the community.

As Official Nutrition Sponsor, Herbalife will enter a number of teams of employees and have a range of nutrition products available for sampling during the block party that takes place throughout the day of the event.

“It is an honor to once again be the official nutrition sponsor of this year’s YMCA Stair Climb,” said Frank Lamberti, senior vice president of worldwide finance and strategy, Herbalife, and Stuart M. Ketchum Downtown YMCA board member. “We often seek to align our activities with organizations that share our values, and the LA YMCA is a natural fit. Sponsoring this year’s stair climb supports our vision to change people’s lives through living a healthy, active lifestyle.”

The event takes place on Friday, September 19, 2014. For more information, visit YMCA Stair Climb.

This agreement is part of Herbalife’s broader sponsorship program aimed at promoting good nutrition as part of a healthy, active lifestyle. The sponsorship further highlights Herbalife’s commitment to playing an active role in the Los Angeles community-an area known for its large Latino community and served by the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles. Herbalife is currently the main shirt sponsor of LA’s MLS Cup champions, LA Galaxy and the presenting sponsor of the Herbalife Triathlon Los Angeles. Herbalife also works with the Red Cross Los Angeles to provide disaster relief, and supports a number of local charities and organizations, such as ‘A Place Called Home’, the Children’s Institute Inc., and the Union Rescue Mission to help provide nutrition support to vulnerable children and families in the L.A. area.
