PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- Runners: On your mark, get set, go! BMO Harris Bank announces their presenting sponsorship of The Phoenix Marathon. The March 2 marathon is a qualifying event for the Boston Marathon, and is one of the reasons the full marathon has already sold out. The race has registrants from 12 countries and 49 states. To give back to the community, a portion of the runners' entry fees will support Arizona Brainfood, a Mesa nonprofit that discreetly provides backpacks of food to needy school children.
"The Phoenix Marathon is very pleased about its newly formed relationship with BMO Harris Bank. We feel both organizations share the same core principles and are closely aligned in their commitment to our community. BMO will help the marathon continue its goal to bring the world to the Phoenix area in support of our community and Arizona Brainfood," commented Kim Arnett, Phoenix Marathon Founder.
BMO Harris Bank employees will show their support of the presenting sponsorship by volunteering and cheering on the runners as well as assisting at aid stations.
The scenic Usery Mountains are the backdrop for the 26-mile race. Runners and their supporters will enjoy the views from Usury Mountain Park. There are race choices available for runners of all levels. In addition to the full marathon, there is a half marathon, 10k and a free 1k fun run for kids. The shorter races will traverse through parts of historic Mesa, finishing at Riverview Shopping Center.
It's no wonder that running is one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Numerous studies have shown the health and emotional benefits of hitting the pavement.
"BMO is very supportive of encouraging a healthy body and mind," added Johnson. "Being associated with an event that provides an opportunity for physical exercise is a demonstration of that commitment."
Nearly a dozen elected officials, including several mayors, various city council members and a state senator, have already registered to participate. "Biggest Loser" Season 12 winner, John Rhodes, is also slated to run.
"One of the elements that attracted us to the event was the support it provides in supporting hungry children," said Steve Johnson, BMO Harris Bank Arizona President. "BMO Harris Bank has a rich history of supporting the community, and feeding children is a clear priority."

Wearable technology was dominant at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) , and MWC was no exception to this trend. New versions of favorites, such as the Samsung Gear (three new products were released: the Gear 2, the Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit), shared the limelight with new wearables like Pebble Time Steel (the new premium version of the company’s previously released smartwatch) and the LG Watch Urbane. The most dramatic difference at MWC was an emphasis on presenting we...

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
