Jack LaLanne, “The Godfather of Fitness,” would have turned 98 years old on September 26 and even though Jack is no longer with us, his enthusiasm for health and wellness lives on in the health products he developed and the programs he was passionate about. Swanson Health Products President, Lee Swanson, was a close and personal friend to Jack and together, they joined forces to bring quality, affordable health products such as Swanson Ultra® Vita-Lanne Instant Meal Shakes (available in Honey Vanilla and Chocolate flavors).
In addition to developing amazing health products, Swanson Health Products continues to honor Jack’s legacy by sponsoring events such as the Jack LaLanne Celebrity “Golfreation” in Pasadena, California. All proceeds of the event go to The First Tee, a nonprofit youth development organization which provides boys and girls on the Central Coast and Pasadena the opportunity to participate in various First Tee Programs. These programs focus on providing character education, health and fitness through golf and the nine healthy habits; honesty, integrity, respect, sportsmanship, confidence, responsibility, perseverance, courtesy and judgment.
