Jilbert Dairy & NFL Team Up to Bring You Fuel UP Play 60 at the Superior Dome!

Written by on May 17, 2014

MARQUETTE, MI – 5/17/2014 There’s nothing like going to the Superior Dome in Marquette, MI.  With celebrities, kids, & fans alike attending the Fuel UP Play 60 sponsored by Jilbert Dairy it was no coincidence that Major Discount was on the scene.   The event centered around teaching kids how to live a healthy lifestyle.  What to eat, how to fuel your body properly, and (most importantly) how to be active.

Former NFL players were in attendance such as Tony Fisher, former Green Bay Packer & Mr. Football – Ohio, along with Luther Ellis, a former defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions.  Some local celebrities were there too, like Winter Olympian Snowboarder Nick Baumgartner and reigning Dairy Queen Chelsie Kronemeyer of Pickford!  Others like Jean Moize came all the way from Dallas, TX to assist with the organization of the event, as did Denise Malhoney of West Iron County, a big advocate of the program.

The event was organized by Gordon Mielke, who said he was “very proud” of all the work that went into the day.  He was very excited to have such an array of high profile people come out to support this great cause.  With healthy snacks, drinks (MILK!), and activities, it truly was a great way to spend a Saturday in the Marquette.

We’d like to thank all of our fellow sponsors for this event:  UDIM, Tadych’s Econo Foods, Honor Credit Union, SIR Federal Credit Union, The Screened Image, Care Clinic of Marquette, and of course Jilbert Dairy!
