VAIL, CO -- (Marketwire) -- 07/31/12 -- The PGA TOUR, whose Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation golf tournament launched earlier this year with a special focus on helping Americans live healthier lives, will extend its commitment to health this fall by supporting Living at Your Peak in Vail. Scheduled for September 13-15, Living at Your Peak is the nation's only gathering designed to help health-conscious individuals and influencers discover how to live longer, better and impact the well-being of their world.

"When the PGA TOUR launched the Humana Challenge, we were thrilled to see such a prominent organization use its platform to help Americans live healthier lives," said Jamie Stone, Living at Your Peak event champion and a board member of the Vail Symposium, a non-profit organization responsible for Living at Your Peak. "We are proud to partner with this organization to extend its commitment to health to the Vail valley."

The Humana Challenge, a collaboration among the PGA TOUR, Clinton Foundation and Humana, uses its stature and visibility as a PGA TOUR tournament to challenge individuals to better understand their role in their own well-being and to take steps to improve and maintain their health. In addition to public education initiatives throughout the week, the tournament features healthy concession options and on-course well-being activities for tournament spectators. The second annual Humana Challenge will be held January 14-20, 2013.

"As a strong adjunct to our own health initiatives, Living at Your Peak closely aligns with the Humana Challenge's mission and will help us achieve our goal to motivate people to live healthier lives," said Tim Finchem, commissioner of the PGA TOUR. "The PGA TOUR is strongly committed to supporting initiatives that promote health and well-being, which is why we are proud to sponsor this event."
