SONC Teams Up with BODYARMOR for Summer Promotion


Special Olympics Northern California (SONC) has partnered with BODYARMOR, Raley’s and Sacramento Republic FC for a campaign that will encourage athlete health while raising funds and awareness for local programs.

With every purchase of BODYARMOR Sports DrinkLYTE, and SportWater at Raley'sBel Air and Nob Hill Foods in July and August, BODYARMOR will donate 5 cents to SONC up to $10,000. 

“At BODYARMOR, we are focused on transforming sports hydration and bringing better-for-you products to consumers in the community,” said Drew Moench, commercial manager for BODYARMOR. “We felt that this was the perfect opportunity to partner with Special Olympics to give back through the support of our local retail partner, Raley’s. BODYARMOR LYTE is a low-calorie sports drink alternative that is naturally sweetened, naturally flavored and has no added sugar. So this partnership really aligns across the SONC Healthy Athletes Program.”

Along with the in-store giveback campaign, BODYARMOR and the Sacramento Republic FC have teamed with an online SWEEPSTAKES that awards one weekly winner a $100 Raley’s gift card plus a month’s supply of BODYARMOR for their family. For info and rules, please visit:

The BODYARMOR giveback will run through the end of August at all Northern California Raley’s, Bel Air and Nob Hill locations. More information is available at
