It’s a nutrient-packed fitness drink that can play an important role in their workout recovery routines. We are proud to support high school athletes in Maryland.”
"Our partnership with the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association will not only provide the MPSSAA with resources to enhance education-based athletic initiatives to thousands of high school students throughout Maryland but also increased focus on the role of proper nutrition in training and conditioning ," said Andy Warner, Executive Director for the MPSSAA. In addition to the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association’s contribution to the MPSSAA, the partnership will provide opportunities for participants and spectators at various state championship events to receive nutritional information and samples of low-fat chocolate milk to spread the word about this tasty option in aiding the body’s recovery from fitness activities.
