Launch of Third Edition of the Milk 2 Go Sport Ambassadors Program
RSEQ – Montreal, February 2, 2017 – The RSEQ (Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec) and Milk 2 Go Sport are proud to announce the launch of the third edition of the Milk 2 Go Sport Ambassadors Program. Thirteen RSEQ university student-athletes from seven universities will be representing the brand on their respective campuses.
This project aims to support the Ambassadors in their studies and sport through a financial contribution, while also raising awareness among all university student‑athletes about the product’s benefits. As an ultimate goal, two $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to the two student‑athletes — one male and one female — who have been the best Ambassadors and two $1,000 scholarships to two student-athletes – one male and one female – who were the second best Ambassadors, based on their academic performance, athletic performance and involvement in the program.
“This program demonstrates the will of a member of the corporate community to engage with student athletes in order to support them in their quest of academic success through sport”, says Stephane Boudreau, deputy director for RSEQ.
“We are truly pleased with the Ambassadors who have been selected. They are all outstanding student-athletes who perfectly represent the values of the RSEQ and Milk 2 Go Sport, and they will be excellent role models for Quebec youth. They all have very inspiring backgrounds and unique personalities,” says Melina Sagarrica, marketing manager for Milk 2 Go Sport.
