Why Is It Called "Battle Of The Boards?"
ALRI is promoting this contest through partner websites and online message boards. The message board that produces the winner will also be recognized... and its members will get deep discounts on ALRI products. (It also doesn't hurt to have a little semi-friendly rivalry) Contestants can post their results and progress on the boards where you can comment and read feedback. (You can also give some of your own opinions, of course)
The clock is ticking, what are you waiting for? Check out our partners and get started today!

Okay, Now For the Really Important Part... Helping The Kids!
The Easter Seals organization helps over one million children and adults with disabilities through more than 450 service locations across the nation. Author L. Rea and ALRI supports the Easter Seals and will donate $1 for every ALRI product sold during the ALRI Battle of the Boards promotion!
No joke, they really need our help. Easter Seals has had their budget cut by $40 Million in recent government budget cuts and is closing help facilities due to a lack of funds. Recent media hype has put a very bad rep on athletes and the supplement industry everywhere. Here is our chance to show what we are really about; Stepping up to challenges others only talk about from arm chairs and couches.
For more information on the Easter Seals, go to http://www.easterseals.com.

Don't want to use ALRI products? So what! Go make a donation yourself and help the kids!
