Wellington, FL - Back on Track® has been a consistent supporter of the Challenge of the Americas over the past several years, and the company is again lending their support for the 2015 edition of the event. Set for March 20 at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, Florida, the Challenge will be a exciting evening of equestrian entertainment. The Challenge brings together elite international dressage and show jumping riders for a competition that assists The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) through their partner Play for P.I.N.K. (Prevention, Immediate Diagnosis, New Technology, Knowledge). The event provides much-needed funding for lifesaving research.
  
Bo Lofvander, owner of Back on Track®, is proud to continue his backing of an event that raises funds for such an important cause.
 
"I've personally seen the effects of this disease," he said. "Any kind of cancer is terrible, but I've had two friends who have died of breast cancer, and it can happen to anybody in any family. It's a very good cause to support."
 
He added that attending the Challenge each year is always a highlight, and he loves each part of the event, from the exhibitions and quadrille competition to the Challenge Gala.
 
"They put together a great show," Lofvander said. "We have a lot of fun there. I enjoy seeing the riders; I enjoy the dinner and party after. All the people involved are unbelievable, and I like meeting them all."
 
Back on Track® combines modern textile technology and traditional Chinese medicine supported by scientific studies to create products that help people, horses and dogs achieve a more active and comfortable life. When their products are heated, ceramic particles fused into the fibers produce long-wave heat radiation to help increase blood circulation and reduce inflammation.
 
While Lofvander appreciates the exposure his company receives from sponsoring the event, he emphasized that the most compelling reason behind his sponsorship is the satisfaction of helping to make a difference.
 
"If you can afford helping out with fundraisers like this, I definitely think it's worth it," he said. "That's the best benefit we get."
