Foot Locker Announces ‘Five Borough Challenge’ Team In Support Of 18th Consecutive Year As A Sponsor Of The TCS New York City Marathon

Team Showcases Five New Yorkers Who Have Overcome Personal Challenges Through Running

NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Foot Locker, Inc. (NYSE: FL), the New York-based specialty athletic retailer, announced the roster of its annual "Foot Locker Five Borough Challenge" team today. Comprised of five runners – one from each borough of New York City – who have each overcome significant challenges, Foot Locker will unite these five inspiring individuals on Sunday, Nov.5 for a unique race-within-a-race to honor their motivational stories and achievements.  The team will run the first 13 miles of the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon together, before continuing on to finish the remainder of the race at their own pace. The runner who crosses the finish line first will win a Tiffany plate as well as city-wide bragging rights.

In support of its official TCS New York City Marathon sponsorship, Foot Locker celebrates the five athletes who have used running to overcome personal trials and tribulations.

"Each member of this year's Five Borough Challenge team exudes determination and perseverance," said Andy Gray, vice president and general manager for Foot Locker U.S. "Running has played an integral role in coping with their hardships, and Foot Locker is proud to provide these amazing athletes with a platform to showcase their physical and mental strength."

Inspired by their stories of conquering adversity, Foot Locker is proud to introduce its "Five Borough" Challenge runners:

  • Bronx: Katie Zottola
  • Brooklyn: Peter O'Rourke
  • Manhattan: Dorothy Carlow
  • Queens: Roger Mendoza
  • Staten Island: Chre Genao

Katie Zottola, Bronx
Bronx native, Katie Zottola, has always been fit. A casual runner since high school, her passion for the sport grew during her time as a collegiate athlete. After graduating from college in 2008 and beginning a career as a registered nurse in a neonatal ICU, she continued running with two of her childhood friends as a way to relieve stress. In December of 2011, one of those friends, Margaret, tragically passed away unexpectedly. "We had always dreamed of running the NYC marathon together. After her passing, my passion for running intensified and had a deeper meaning. It became a time for me to reflect on the valuable memories we shared, and a way to keep Margaret's memory alive," said Zottola, who is set to run her second marathon.

Peter O'Rourke, Brooklyn
As a young kid growing up in Bay Ridge, Peter O'Rourke struggled with childhood obesity. By the time O'Rourke entered high school, the scale read more than 300 pounds, and he decided to do something about it. "I dealt with a high school bully who made me hate myself and ruined my self-esteem," said O'Rourke, who is preparing for his 27th marathon. "I started running as a means to lose weight. Within a year, I lost 140 pounds, and was able to rebuild my self-esteem." Peter's passion for his new-found healthy lifestyle led him to a career where he could impact others. He's currently a New York City physical education teacher, hoping to inspire and help his students who are struggling with their health and/or dealing with the stresses of bullying.

Dorothy Carlow, Manhattan
Manhattan resident, Dorothy Carlow, was 17 years old when her father was convicted of a felony, and sent to prison. Carlow's family lost everything, leaving them with the burden of picking up the pieces that were left behind. Soon after his conviction, she began running habitually. "I ran from the feelings of sadness, shame and anger, but then started running into those feelings, and eventually through them," said Carlow. "I learned to get comfortable with the uncomfortable." Carlow equates running to life, "There is pain, there is doubt, there is fear, but we fight to come out victorious, smiling and high-fiving!" Carlow's father will be at this year's TCS New York City Marathon cheering her on, as she runs her fourth marathon.

Roger Mendoza, Queens
In 2007, Roger shattered his foot after falling two stories while practicing parkour. Doctors told him it was one of the worst breaks they'd ever seen, and that he would never run again, let alone walk without a limp. Mendoza, however, was determined to prove them wrong. The day his uncle passed away, after a long struggle with Diabetes, he took his first steps without crutches. "Life can be taken away in an instant. He gave me the strength to will myself forward and take those steps without crutches," said Mendoza. After eight years of painful therapy, Mendoza ran his first marathon in 2015. In addition to the physical challenges he has overcome, he's also battled with depression that caused him to contemplate taking his life in 2016. He attributes his relationship with his nephew as the driving force to continue on. "I saw my nephew's face, and didn't want him to be left with his uncle's suicide as the story he'd have to tell," said Mendoza. "Running has helped me prevail over both physical and mental challenges." This will be Mendoza's fourth marathon.

Chre Genao, Staten Island
Chre Genao, will be running her fourth TCS New York City Marathon. Running regularly has helped Genao overcome the losses she's experienced throughout her life. In 2004, soon after her marriage and while she was pregnant with her first child, her mother was diagnosed with metastatic uterine cancer, and shortly after succumbed to the disease. In the years that followed, Genao's marriage fell apart, and her father was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2012, sadly losing his battle in 2014. "I was grateful that he got the opportunity to see so many of my races and accomplishments, but nothing compares to the hardship of being a single mother to three children, and losing my parents," said Genao. "I run to prove to myself and my children that I'm stronger than anything life throws at me."

Foot Locker is dedicated to inspiring and supporting all runners, whether they are beginners, weekend warriors, ultra-marathoners or anything in between. In addition to its official TCS New York City Marathon sponsorship, Foot Locker has supported running for the past 40 years through partnerships, campaigns and Foot Locker Cross Country Championships. This year's TCS New York City Marathon and Foot Locker Cross Country Championships are sponsored by New Balance.

Hyundai Tackles Another NFL Season By Driving The 2017 Kickoff

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The wait is almost over, the first kickoff of the 2017 NFL season is just two days away and Hyundai has suited up to give fans an even better experience. Entering its third season as an official sponsor of the National Football League (NFL) and the presenting sponsor of the 2017 Kickoff, Hyundai will tackle the first game with immersive fan interaction and creative content. The Kickoff activities will be the opening drive of Hyundai's season-long campaign to help NFL fans have a better experience with the game they love.

"There is nothing quite like the experience of watching your favorite team play on Sunday. Hyundai aims to make the NFL experience even better by connecting with these fans through a shared passion for NFL football," said Dean Evans, chief marketing officer, Hyundai Motor America. "Our Kickoff initiatives are a way to give the 188+ million NFL fans a better and more meaningful way to kick the season off by providing opportunities to celebrate the game and their teams, while showcasing the Hyundai vehicle lineup."

2017 NFL Kickoff Driven By Hyundai
Hyundai will be the presenting sponsor of the 2017 NFL Kickoff at Gillette Stadium in New England. At its activation space at the stadium, Hyundai will host NFL Legends for autograph sessions, provide fans a fun photo opportunity to share on social media, and offer giveaways including a $10 NFLshop.com gift card. The on-site activation will also display four of Hyundai's vehicles – the new Ioniq, Elantra GT, Tucson and Santa Fe. Prior to the game, fans can celebrate at the Christopher Columbus Park in downtown Boston. There will be appearances by Patriots' icons and a free live performance at the Kickoff concert, sponsored by Hyundai, from a surprise artist. As a part of the sponsorship, there will be Hyundai LED signage flanking the stage. The Kickoff activation is managed by Advantage.

Random Acts of Kickoff
Leading up to the 2017 NFL season, the NFL provided fans with Random Acts of Kickoff. These experiences range from surprise player and celebrity appearances to free merchandise and game tickets. One of Hyundai's Acts of Kickoff gave six football super fans a test drive of a lifetime when they were surprised with a guest passenger, NFL Legend Spice Adams. After arriving at the "stadium" in the 2018 Sonata, they played "What's in The Trunk?" where each fan was challenged with a series of trivia questions that were related to their favorite team. After completing each challenge, they moved closer towards the end zone. Once the touchdown was scored (car in the end zone), the fan was be able to see "What's In The Trunk" where they won a trip to the week 1 game of their favorite team. This fan experience was captured in a digital content series currently running on NFL.com/randomacts.

Safeties First
In the "Safeties First" videos running on Hyundai's YouTube channel, Rodney Harrison learns that he has a lot in common with Hyundai; they both believe that safety/safeties should come first. The videos will have contextually relevant online media banners running on NFL.com with pre-roll that will be directing to Hyundai.com to view all the videos.

Hyundai vehicles include safety technology like Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection that helps drivers avoid hits. Currently five Hyundai models are deemed IIHS Top Safety Picks where vehicles are tested to determine crashworthiness — how well a vehicle protects its occupants in a crash. It also rates vehicles for front crash prevention, systems that warn the driver or brake automatically to avoid or mitigate a frontal collision.

Hyundai's NFL Creative
During the Kickoff show, Hyundai will air its popular Sonata spot, "Duet" with the "Official Sponsor of The NFL" designation at the end. The new ad features Hyundai's fully redesigned 2018 Sonata in a familiar situation that football fans experience on game day, traffic. A delighted Sonata driver sings along to Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond while stuck in a massive traffic jam, and unites with another happy Sonata owner among several angst-ridden drivers on the road. The ad features the new Sonata 2.0T and showcases its captivating new design and demonstrates safety technology features like Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), which is now standard equipment on all trim levels.

Hyundai will also continue to run its highly successful ads that focus on how the brand celebrates the fan passion for and loyalty to their teams throughout NFL season. Ads include "D-Gate", "Fishing Trip", and "Choices". Hyundai's "D-Gate" spot is a fun take on some passionate Arizona Cardinals fans and their effort to create the ultimate symbol of support for their team. The Hyundai Tucson showcases Hands-free Smart Liftgate with additional cargo space that is ideal for NFL fans, whether they are tailgating in the stadium parking lot or packing up for a game day gathering. The "Fishing Trip" 30-second spot features a diehard Miami Dolphins fan whose Sunday improves because of their Hyundai Elantra's innovative technology. Lastly, "Choices" features a Pittsburgh Steelers fan seamlessly caring for his infant and never missing a minute of the Steelers game due to the Hyundai Santa Fe's 8-inch Touch Screen with SiriusXM Recording Feature. These ads organically demonstrate the connection between the brand and loyal NFL fans. Hyundai's NFL creative was developed by INNOCEAN USA.

Throughout the season, Hyundai will also be utilizing NFL creative in one of the most highly visited areas, its Time Square digital billboard and will be distributing NFL-themed social posts and interacting with fans on its social media platforms.

Social Sports Betting Platform SportKenya Aims to Conquer Africa

LONDON, September 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Social betting technology developer Oddslife has entered the African market by taking its B2B social betting platform into Kenya with one of the continent's largest sports betting affiliates.

     (Photo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/552105/SportKenya_Africa_Betting.jpg )

Launched in partnership with WinDrawWin.com and PredictZ.com and sponsored by local operator Betin.co.ke, http://www.SportKenya.co.ke will be launched in Kenya before moving into countries such as Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania and Uganda to create a unified African competition in time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

This new venture, available for preview at http://www.SportKenya.co.ke will focus on establishing a traffic network to connect with affiliates, media and traffic websites in Africa who are looking for new ways to both retain and monetise their traffic.

Mathew Symmonds, Founder of Web Analysis Solutions Limited, which operates both WinDrawWin.com and PredictZ.com, commented: "We have organically grown a lot of loyal African traffic over the past 14 years on our websites, but it has grown exponentially over the last 3-4 years in countries like Kenya and Nigeria."

"Combined with our Kenyan traffic, we are confident that SportKenya will gain strong momentum and become a recognised and trusted brand. We receive around 800,000 unique visitors from Kenya each week across WinDrawWin.com and PredictZ.com - that's a lot of traffic to push to this new platform in a country that has a population of 48 million people."

Symmonds, who is available for meetings and demos at next week's Betting on Sports conference (Stand B7), continued: "We will be using the SportKenya concept as a 'gentle in-road' into betting in countries where conversion and retention can be challenging. As a free-to-play site, there's no problem with players dropping off after registration because they cannot or will not  deposit - SportKenya is free-to-play so we do not have to rely on registration to depositor conversion rates.

"We will also enhance player retention through our platform which is designed around rewarding free-to-play players for their virtual betting activity and loyalty.  Building a loyal customer base, and understanding those customers' needs is invaluable in any market an affiliate or operator works in, and that's what we will achieve with SportKenya."

"To our knowledge, no-one is doing anything like this, or at least on this scale with the ready-made volume of traffic we can push at it, in Kenya or anywhere in Africa. Our platform and affiliate network will further enable affiliates and media companies across Africa to offer their players features such as ad hoc competitions with virtual currency stakes, World Cup based competitions, as well as conversion optimisation to monetise their traffic and remarketing to inactive players."

Rasmus Sojmark, Oddslife Founder and CEO, added: "We are extremely excited to enter the African space in partnership with WinDrawWin.com, PredictZ.com and main sponsor Betin.co.ke, a leading bookmaker in Kenya. Ventures such as SportKenya are the future of affiliation, as operators place as much emphasis, if not more, on retention and re-marketing to players over pure acquisition. Our platform will cater to that specific need!"

To arrange a meeting to discuss opportunities around Africa and SportKenya at the Betting on Sports conference, please contact Mathew Symmonds (mathew@webanalysissolutions.com), or Alexandru Teodorescu, Chief Product Officer of Oddslife (act@oddslife.com).
