Phix logoSeptember 1, 2011 – Grassroot Soccer (GRS) today announces a sponsorship agreement between Phix, a natural energy drink supplement, and INSPI(RED) SOCCER, a fundraising and awareness initiative between GRS and (RED) that engages thousands of students nationwide in 3v3 soccer tournaments that save lives.

As a sponsor, Phix will support INSPI(RED) SOCCER 3v3 Tournaments hosted on college campuses around the country. “I’m excited to team up with INSPI(RED) SOCCER. Phix is a perfect fit for college students in need of a natural, quick pick-me-up that won’t cause spikes, jitters, or crashes,” said Doug Brown, president of Phix, Inc. “Consumption of unhealthy energy drinks on college campuses is at an all-time high. Phix is designed to provide an all-natural energy boost that will keep the average person feeling both physically and mentally revitalized without ever sacrificing their health.”

INSPI(RED) SOCCER tournaments are already well under way for the 2011-2012 academic year. The goals for this fall are to reach 5,000 students through 50 volunteer-run tournaments, and to raise $50,000 to help GRS equip young people in Africa with the knowledge, skills and support they need to stay HIV- free and live healthy lifestyles.

About INSPI(RED) SOCCER

Grassroot Soccer (GRS) and (RED), leaders in the fight against HIV, created INSPI(RED) SOCCER to engage thousands of students nationwide in 3v3 soccer tournaments that save lives. It’s soccer with a purpose. It’s youth around the world fighting for an AIDS Free Generation, where the spread of HIV ends and every child has a chance for a healthy future. It’s the global soccer community coming together to solve one of the world’s most pressing health crises. All funds raised through INSPI(RED) SOCCER benefit Grassroot Soccer (GRS), an international nonprofit that uses the power of soccer to prevent the spread of AIDS and save lives among those with the highest rates of new infections—youth in Africa.
