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.

Fill Your Stein and Slip on Your Lederhosen: Samuel Adams OctoberFest Returns This Fall with Biggest Stein Hoisting Competition Yet

Sports Illustrated to Help Crown "America's Stein Hoisters of the Year"

BOSTON, Sept. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Craft beer fans will break out their lederhosen and dirndl, as Samuel Adams' highly anticipated OctoberFest beer is back on shelves for the fall beer season. With the return of the beloved, malty märzen-style lager comes the return of something else that not even a paleo diet, flipping tractor tires, or goat yoga can prepare drinkers for: the ultimate "everyman" athletic competition, OctoberFest Stein Hoisting.

Coming to beer halls, bars, tailgates and Oktoberfest tents across the country, the Sam Adams Stein Hoisting Competitions bring together sport and beer in a way that only OctoberFest can. Feats of strength and agility are a common sight at the home of Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany - and since 2011 Sam Adams has been bringing this time-honored test of strength to the U.S., with over 200,000 steins hoisted across the country.

This year, Samuel Adams has partnered with Sports Illustrated on the quest to find the top Stein Hoisters in America. Competitors across the country must hold a one-liter stein of OctoberFest straight out in front without bending their elbow or spilling any of the beer. The top five male and five female Stein Hoisters across the nation will each win a trip for two to compete in the finals in Boston on October 27.  This final hoist will determine the winners -- one male and one female -- who will reign as "America's Stein Hoisters of the Year" and win the Grand Prize of a trip for two to Sports Illustrated's annual Sportsperson of the Year Gala, where they will rub elbows (and tired arms) with fellow athletes and celebrities.

In addition to local events across the country, Sam Adams is bringing Stein Hoisting to special popup celebrations in five cities this fall - where craft beer and music fans alike can celebrate everyone's favorite season with delicious beer, live music, lawn games and even a hop slide. Festival goers that think they have what it takes can join walk-up competitions, or kick back and enjoy brews and food while listening to artists such as The Strumbellas, The Wallflowers, 311 and Mighty Mighty Bosstones.

About Samuel Adams and The Boston Beer Company
The Boston Beer Company began in 1984 with a generations-old family recipe that Founder and Brewer Jim Koch uncovered in his father's attic. Inspired and unafraid to challenge conventional thinking about beer, Jim brought the recipe to life in his kitchen. Pleased with the results of his work, Jim decided to sample his beer with bars in Boston in the hopes that drinkers would appreciate the complex, full-flavored beer he brewed fresh in America. That beer was aptly named Samuel Adams Boston Lager, in recognition of one of our nation's great founding fathers, a man of independent mind and spirit. Little did Jim know at the time, Samuel Adams Boston Lager would soon become a catalyst of the American craft beer revolution.

Today, The Boston Beer Company brews more than 60 styles of beer. It relentlessly pursues the development of new styles and the perfection of classic beers by searching the world for the finest ingredients. Using the traditional four vessel brewing process, the Company often takes extra steps like dry-hopping, barrel-aging and a secondary fermentation known as krausening. The Company has also pioneered another revolution, the 'extreme beer' movement, where it seeks to challenge drinker's perceptions of what beer can be. The Boston Beer Company has been committed to elevating the image of American craft beer by entering festivals and competitions around the globe, and is one of world's most awarded breweries at international beer competitions. As an independent company, brewing quality beer remains its primary focus. Although Samuel Adams beer is America's leading craft beer, it accounts for only one percent of the U.S. beer market. The Boston Beer Company will continue its independently-minded quest to brew great beer and to advocate for the growth of craft beer across America.
