Advanced Beauty Systems sponsors Iron Girl event series

DALLAS Advanced Beauty Systems has announced that it is a presenting sponsor of the Aflac Iron Girl national women's event series for its Bodycology and Dr. Teal's brands.

"Our company is like-minded to the mission of Iron Girl, we too embrace the importance of empowering women to live a healthy lifestyle. This event series brings women of all ages together, and the spotlight on women athletes represents an additional target demographic for our brands," stated Chris McClain, president of Advanced Beauty Systems.

Launched in 2004 with just two events, the Iron Girl brand has grown to include 12 events nationwide, varying in distance from 5K to duathlon and triathlon. Iron Girl's mission is to empower women toward a healthy lifestyle. The nationwide events kicked off in April in Clearwater, Fla., and will wrap up on Nov. 14 in Tempe, Ariz.

In addition to the event sponsorship, Advanced Beauty Systems will be providing free samples of Bodycology body mists, Dr. Teal's foot soak, backpacks and tank tops to all race participants and Expo attendees at each of the 12 races. In addition, the top finisher in each event bracket will receive a year's supply of Dr. Teal's peppermint foot soak, along with a soaking basin.
