XANGO’s (http://www.xango.com) continued involvement in the Tour of Utah adds to its sports sponsorship portfolio and aligns with the company’s focus on wellness and healthy lifestyles. Avid cyclists themselves, XANGO Founder, Chairman and CEO Aaron Garrity and Founder and Board Member Joe Morton have led a company cycling team which, for the past several years, has participated in The Ultimate Challenge century ride. This 96-mile non-competitive ride on August 6 follows the same route that the pros will ride on August 14 from Park City to Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort. It comes as no surprise, then, that Morton earned the title Utah’s fittest executive under 50 years of age by Utah Business Magazine in 2008. Morton’s completed seven Ironman triathlons within the past decade.
“XANGO is a wellness company first and foremost in every sense of the word, whether it be financial, health or a caring commitment to give back and champion worthy causes at home and throughout the world,” said Morton. “Our participation in the Tour of Utah is an embodiment of this philosophy and enables us to support this world-class event in our own community while at the same time advocating the benefits of active, healthy living and exercise at every age.”
The 7th edition of the Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah will consist of an opening prologue and five stages. The Prologue presented by KJZZ-TV and 1320 KFAN will be hosted at Utah Olympic Park in Park City on Tuesday, August 9. Stage races will be hosted the next two days by Ogden and Provo, respectively, Stage One presented by Miller Lite and Stage Two presented by Adobe.
