Denver Mattress Company Partners with ReST at IRONMAN Coeur d’Alene

DENVER, Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Denver Mattress Company ("Denver Mattress") and sleep technology innovator, Responsive Surface Technology, LLC ("ReST"), will partner at IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene from August 24 – 26. 

"At Denver Mattress, we know that people trust us to help them find ways to sleep healthier," says Brenden Maves, National Sales Manager.  "The best way we can support triathletes is by ensuring they get restorative sleep.  So, we are joining ReST at IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene to demo the ReST Bed™ because it was designed as a mattress to help athletes sleep better and recover faster."

Touted by engadget as the "smartest smart bed," the ReST Bed™ promotes better circulation, which increases the amount of oxygen muscles can receive. The sleeper can customize pressure-relieving adjustments to the parts of the body that need them most that night.

Additionally, the ReST Bed's™ patented fabric senses the sleeper's unique shape and pressure profile – and then uses that data to ensure that the surface automatically responds to improve spinal alignment and head-to-toe back support.

"After seeing the success of our partnership at IRONMAN Boulder in June, Brenden and I agreed that Denver Mattress and ReST should come to IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene so that even more triathletes would have the opportunity to experience why the ReST Bed™ has – in less than two years – become the leading mattress for endurance athletes."

About ReST
ReST's mission is to perfect the sleep experience.  ReST is the only company with an integrated solution that not only tracks sleep data but automatically responds to that data to help people sleep better.

Our main product is the ReST Bed™: the only truly smart bed. The ReST Bed™ incorporates our patented smart fabric, which senses changes in pressure and interacts with the mattress in order to automatically respond to the sleeper's comfort and support needs throughout the night.  In addition, a ReST Bed™ provides useful information and data about consumers' sleep patterns.  Above all, ReST Beds™ – like all of our products – help people sleep better so that they can live healthier and more productive lives.  www.restperformance.com

Visit Seattle Sets Sail in the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race

Nikki Henderson, 24-Year-Old from Guildford, England to Skipper the Visit Seattle Yacht, Leading 60 Amateur Crew Members Around the World, Including Two from Seattle Who Will Sail the Full Race

SEATTLE, Aug. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Once around the world was not enough. The 70-foot racing yacht Visit Seattle -namesake of Seattle's official destination marketing organization and second-time race sponsor – is setting sail again to compete against 11 teams in the 2017-18 Clipper Round the World Yacht Race that leaves Liverpool August 20. The race spans 40,000 nautical miles and includes visits to 13 international ports over the next 11 months.

Following an exciting showing in the 2015-16 race, Visit Seattle is thrilled to once again promote the Emerald City as a sought-after international tourist destination and business hub while cheering on Nicola "Nikki" Henderson, the youngest captain in Clipper Round the World history. Nikki's crew of amateur sailors includes five from Seattle, including Shannon Dean, a 54-year-old nurse, and Marek Omilian, a 53-year-old consultant, who will sail eight legs over the next 11 months.

Visit Seattle's sail and hull display Seattle's destination brand colors and logos from co-sponsor the Seattle Sports Commission, as well as host port partner the Port of Seattle's Bell Harbor Marina and hotel partner the Seattle Marriott Waterfront.

"The ongoing partnership between Visit Seattle and Clipper Round the World shines a global spotlight on Seattle as a world-class visitor destination and center of business innovation," said Tom Norwalk, President & CEO of Visit Seattle. "Each port of call presents an opportunity to connect and engage with potential visitors and business partners. And, as the drama of the race unfolds on the world stage, the Visit Seattle brand flies full sail while our intrepid crew embraces the spirit of adventure."

"Participating as a sponsor of the Clipper Race is about so much more than logos on a yacht," said Ralph Morton, Executive Director, Seattle Sports Commission. "It is an authentic platform for our city with its own distinct maritime history to extend a "Visit Seattle" invitation around the globe during this once-in-a-lifetime adventure."

In April 2018, Seattle will welcome all Clipper Round the World yachts, including Visit Seattle, as they enter the Puget Sound and the Port of Seattle's Bell Harbor Marina from Qingdao, China before heading to Panama.

"The Seattle stopover certainly made its mark on our international race crew, friends, family and business partners during the last race and I am pleased that we will return to the Emerald City once again," said Clipper Race Founder and Chairman Sir Robin Knox-Johnston. "Like our race crews, the people of Seattle have a strong sense of adventure and the support received from the city and its residents as the fleet raced around the world was fantastic. The welcome and hospitality provided by locals and businesses during the race's visit to Seattle was first-class and has put the city firmly on the map as a popular race destination to visit and do business with and we hope to build on the relationships created."

Port of Seattle Commissioner Fred Felleman welcomes the race's return saying: "The Port of Seattle is a proud sponsor and host of the Clipper Race at our Bell Harbor Marina in April 2018. The Port's involvement in this unique international maritime competition is to highlight the Port's contribution to putting Seattle on the world stage - providing global connections by air and sea. Seattle is a world-class destination for the adventure-seeking sailor due to its stunning waterways and cultural richness that has created an ecologically-minded and entrepreneurial community."

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race is the only event of its kind for amateur sailors. Approximately 40 percent of the crewmembers are novices and have never sailed prior to completing their comprehensive training program ahead of their adventure. Following the success of the Clipper Race partnership, 14 crew members from Washington State, including five from Seattle, have signed up to participate in the 2017-2018 race edition.

The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, which has UNICEF as the official Charity Partner, is the world's greatest ocean adventure and regarded as one of the toughest endurance challenges on the planet. The race spans 40,000 nautical miles, beginning in August 2017, takes almost a year to complete and consists of 12 teams competing against each other on the world's largest matched fleet of ocean-racing yachts.

Acura Reveals Striking ARX-05 Prototype Race Car in Monterey; Debut Set for Daytona

- Acura to take on top WeatherTech SportsCar Championship category with renowned Team Penske running pair of Acura ARX-05s in 2018- ARX-05 will be displayed this week at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering; Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion; and Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Concept Lawn

MONTEREY, Calif., Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Acura today unveiled the new Acura ARX-05 prototype race car at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering. Acura Motorsports will join forces with the legendary Team Penske organization to field a pair of the new Daytona Prototype International (DPi) entries in the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.

The Acura ARX-05 (Acura Racing eXperimental, generation 5) is the latest in a line of endurance prototypes to be fielded by the brand dating to 1991, just five years after the 1986 launch of the Acura marque. Based on the very successful ORECA 07 chassis, the new ARX-05 prototype showcases Acura-specific bodywork and design features, including Acura's signature Jewel Eye™ headlights, and utilizes the race-proven AR35TT twin-turbocharged engine, based on the production 3.5-liter V-6 that powers the Acura MDX, RDX, TLX and RLX models.  

"At Acura, Precision Crafted Performance is at the heart of everything we do," said Jon Ikeda, Acura vice-president and general manager. "Whether it is our production cars or a prototype race car, if you want to be a performance brand you need to perform."

The multi-year DPi program will be administered by Honda Performance Development (HPD), the racing arm for both Acura Motorsports and Honda Racing in North America. The competition debut of the Team Penske Acura prototypes will take place at the season-opening Rolex 24 in January, 2018. One of the team's two ARX-05 entries will be piloted by the legendary Juan Pablo Montoya along with sports car champion Dane Cameron. The second driver pairing will be announced at a later date.

"Right from the start, Acura has raced – and done so successfully," said Art St. Cyr, President of HPD and Acura Motorsports. "We've won with the Acura Integra Type R, the RSX, the first-generation NSX and with the Le Mans prototypes. Most recently, we've won with the new Acura NSX GT3. The ARX-05 is our fifth-generation prototype, and we expect great things from our partnership with Team Penske."

DPi rules require manufacturers to use one of four approved prototype chassis, fitted with IMSA-homologated, manufacturer-designed and branded bodywork and engines. In the case of the ARX-05, the bodywork was developed by a team led by Acura Global Creative Director Dave Marek.

 "We created a variety of initial sketches, then pared those down a handful of potential designs. Next came aero and wind tunnel model testing, and time for the engineers to have their say," Marek recounted. "The design continued to be refined throughout the testing and evaluation process, until we came up with a final treatment that met our performance goals while maintaining Acura styling cues. It's been an exciting process."

The Acura ARX-05 will add to a rich legacy of Acura sports car racing successes, including the 1991-93 IMSA Camel Lights manufacturer and driver championships; 50 IMSA and American Le Mans Series class or overall race victories (through Watkins Glen 2017); and the 2009 American Le Mans Series manufacturer, driver and team championships, in both the LMP1 and LMP2 classes.

Based on the "J35" family of engines found in Acura MDX, RDX, TLX and RLX production vehicles, the Acura AR35TT engine has powered class winners at the 12 Hours of Sebring (2011-13); the 24 Hours of Le Mans and LMP2 World Endurance Championship (2012).  The engine also powered entries to American Le Mans Series LMP2 titles in 2012-13; and the overall winners at the Rolex 24, 12 Hours of Sebring and Petit Le Mans in 2016.

Acura Motorsports currently campaigns the Acura NSX GT3 in the IMSA GTD category with Michael Shank Racing – where it has already won at Detroit and Watkins Glen this season – as well as with Real Time Racing in the Pirelli World Challenge GT division.

Following today's official unveiling, the Acura ARX-05 will also be on display at the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (August 19) and on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance (August 20).

Chicago Man Runs to Bring Hope and Awareness to Others Facing Dementia

CHICAGO, Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A diagnosis of frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), an incurable degenerative brain disease, can be overwhelming. This Saturday, as runners converge for the Super Run 5K in Elk Grove, Illinois, one couple will be there to bring hope, awareness and determination to others, despite such challenges.  

When Chicago's Frank Callea was diagnosed with the primary progressive aphasia form of FTD at age 54, the multi-decade Chicago Tribune technology executive vowed to make a difference, even as he stepped away from his professional life.

Frank and his wife, Amy Bouschart-Callea, have since participated in FTD research with Northwestern Medicine, building on a long history volunteering at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

On Saturday, more than 40 people – including the couple's friends and family members, as well as other volunteers and staff representing the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD) – will join the Super Run to raise FTD awareness. Frank and Amy will bring individual strengths: "Amy's got the words, and I've got the feet," he says. 

While there currently is no cure, Frank adds, "it would be an improvement if there was more awareness, more knowledge and some advancements with treatment."

The couple have already raised more than $3,400 for AFTD's mission – helping those facing FTD today, and advancing research efforts to bring hope for the future. AFTD is an official charity partner of the Chicago Super Run. 

"Frank and Amy's tireless work to raise awareness is crucial to helping the public, professionals and researchers to understand the impact that FTD has on their lives, the struggle to obtain necessary services, and the lack of available treatment options," said Darby J. Morhardt, Research Associate Professor at the Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer's Disease Center (CNADC) at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

An adept pianist, Frank now has time to teach lessons to neighbors, and keeps engaged in sports he enjoys. A speaker and coach, Amy focuses on creating empowering meaning in the midst of a disease most do not understand. Her philosophy: "Let's keep moving forward today to make a difference," she says.

Another goal for Frank this Saturday? To beat a time of 30 minutes.

About FTD: FTD is the leading cause of dementia for people under 60. Unlike Alzheimer's, FTD does not primarily impact memory; instead it affects behavior, movement, personality and communication.

HESCO Sponsor Zombie Invitational Shooting Competition

ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, Aug. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hesco announces their newest sponsorship; The 2017 HESCO Zombie Invitational, a two day Recon-style precision rifle, pistol and shotgun competition open only to qualified, respected, and experienced military, law enforcement, and security professionals.

The Zombie Invitational begins with the premise of an outbreak of the Zomboxococcus Bacteria. The competitors are positioned as "grass-roots contingent" created to try to control the outbreak and stop it from rapidly spreading out of control. 

Jeremy Gray, Zombie Invitational co-organizer, explains the competition:

"This event requires that competitors must leave their vehicle with everything they want for the whole event. There will be no re-supply. The incorporation of the Zombie theme adds time elements to the stages, intricate and unique shooting solutions, and head shots. Every stage is cleared only if the targets get a head shot. In most competitions shooters are scored for center mass strikes, therefore current and former Law Enforcement, Military and those civilians with previous competitive experience will find this event incredibly challenging."

The announcement of Hesco becoming the lead sponsor comes soon after the defensive barriers and body armor company announced being awarded Superior Supplier Status by Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).

Stephanie Victory, CEO Hesco Armor:

"We pride ourselves on our sponsorship; forming partnerships that offer unique ways we can reach our brand ambassadors, and Hesco is such a great fit for this event. Operated by Military and Law Enforcement veterans, it provides every participant with an extreme challenge not readily found in general competitions. And as a company that manufactures products that ensure the protection of our military and law enforcement we also want to ensure they are prepared for the Zombie Apocalypse!"

Over one weekend, participants can cover up to thirty miles of challenging terrain and are able to shoot on one range in a full 360º with live ammunition. Winners of the competition will receive HESCO Body Armor. Register now at www.zombieinvitational.com
