DALLAS, July 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Le-Vel Brands, LLC, the world leader in human nutritional innovation, presented the Hoyt Foundation with a $240,000 donation from the proceeds of its limited-edition Hoyt Derma Fusion Technology (DFTs), of which $5 from every purchase in June was earmarked for the Hoyt Foundation. Founded by athletes Dick and Rick Hoyt of teamhoyt.com, the Hoyt Foundation strives to build the individual character, confidence and self-esteem of America's disabled and physically challenged young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life.
"I want to thank Le-Vel and all of their representatives for working so hard during the month of June to raise awareness and funds for the Hoyt Foundation through the sale of Hoyt DFTs," said Dick Hoyt. "This wonderful contribution from Le-Vel will enable the Hoyt Foundation Inc. to support more local organizations and, in turn, help enhance the lives of countless individuals who live with disabilities."
Established in 2012, Le-Vel is a cloud-based virtual direct selling company, the first of its kind in the direct sales industry. Company Founders Jason Camper and Paul Gravette built their company on a platform that would enable maximum investment in superior ingredients. Their mission was to help people throughout the world not just survive, but thrive with simple yet highly effective products that would boost their energy, enable them to feel better and meet the demands of daily life head on. Four years later, this $500 million company enjoys a global following of independent Brand Promoters and customers who have grown the brand organically through powerful product testimonials. Quite simply, they're feeling better and doing more than they ever thought possible.
Le-Vel's Derma Fusion Technology, or DFT, is part of a simple three-step regimen called THRIVE, designed to help people of all ages live healthier, more active and vital lives. The first of its kind, the DFT time-released delivery system infuses the skin, or derma, with Le-Vel's unique THRIVE Lifestyle Formula. Consumers experience benefits including increased mental performance and appetite management. Used in tandem with THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Shake and THRIVE Premium Lifestyle Capsules, THRIVE helps people recapture their well-being and reach peak physical and mental levels through weight management, digestive support, healthy joint function and lean muscle support, among other benefits. The limited-edition Hoyt DFT features the "Yes You Can" call to action of the Hoyt Foundation, along with the organization's logo.
The legendary Dick Hoyt was the surprise headline speaker during Le-Vel's convention, held April 29-30 in Grapevine, Texas. The moving story he shared of his son's perseverance was incredibly inspiring to the more than 20,000 Le-Vel independent Brand Promoters in the audience. Dick, a retired Lt. Colonel, travels the country educating the public about disability awareness and promoting the motto, "Yes, You Can." His son, Rick was born in 1962 as a quadriplegic with cerebral palsy and without the ability to speak. But his family remained undeterred by those challenges and fiercely supported his quest for independence and participation in community, sports, education and the workplace. With Dick by his side, Rick has competed in more than 1,100 athletic events in the last 37 years, including 32 Boston Marathons and six Ironman competitions. This father-son pair, known as Team Hoyt, are continually pushing the limits of what was previously thought possible for people living with disabilities.
"The Hoyts are proof that, with perseverance, belief and a strong support system, we can achieve incredible things. On behalf of our employees, independent Brand Promoters and their customers, we're honored to support Team Hoyt and the Hoyt Foundation in their tireless efforts to help the disabled and physically challenged live their lives to the fullest," said Paul Gravette, Co-CEO, Co-Owner and Co-Founder of Le-Vel.
Adds fellow Co-Founder, Co-Owner and Co-CEO Jason Camper: "Team Hoyt's message of 'Yes, you can' is something we should all take to heart, as it inspires each one of us to rise to the occasion, no matter the obstacles. As a company, we share their mission to help people who face some of the toughest hurdles to push beyond their barriers and achieve excellence in their lives, while inspiring others do the same. We're thrilled that we were able to lend a hand to help Team Hoyt as they continue to create more opportunities for people living with disabilities."
