Earth Water and Mike Forest... 2 Local Success Stories Partner to Provide Aid to World Refugees

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - A dynamic partnership between Champ Car driver Mike Forest and local company Earth Water is on display this week at the Grand Prix of Edmonton. The media is invited to join Forest and the team from Earth Water for photo opportunities throughout the weekend at the track.

Forest, touted as a rookie of the year hopeful of the Champ Car circuit, has donated space on his car to his official water supplier, Earth Water, to help bring attention to the plight of refugees worldwide. In the second year of the partnership, both parties couldn't be happier: "it's important to stay grounded, and to make sure that you do what you can - and for me, that meant supporting Earth Water" says Forest, while Earth Water CEO, Kori Chilibeck thanks Mike "he's has been a great help - by bringing Earth Water and our message into communities all over North America".

Chilibeck and his team represent a new and powerful breed of socially conscious entrepreneurs. They have managed to break into, and find success in the very competitive international bottled water market, while staying true to the promise they made to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). In fact, it was a promise to pass on 100% of their net profits that convinced the UNHCR to give the company exclusive worldwide rights to use the UNHCR logo, a badge that Earth Water wears proudly.

Forest is an Edmonton native that has, over the last couple of years, left his mark on the Champ Car circuit racing with PR1 Motorsports out of Fresno, California. A graduate of the University of Alberta, Forest has set his sights on the Champ Car World Series, and with times and placements reminiscent of past champions, he's well on his way.
