Pazoo, Inc.'s Celebrity Chef & 5x Cancer Survivor Eric LeVine Announces Million Dollar Marathon Challenge on Fox Business Network

WHIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 14, 2014) - Pazoo, Inc. (OTCQB: PZOO) (German WKN#: A1J3DK) is pleased to announce their partnership with Chef Eric LeVine and his efforts to raise $1 million running the NYC Marathon. LeVine is a Food Network Chopped winner and Pazoo Culinary Expert. He will appear on the Fox Business Network program The Willis Report on Friday August 15th at 5:30pm EST.

Chef Eric has fought back cancer 5 times since July 2000 when he was just 29 years old and a father of two young children. His determination to make every moment of his life count has resulted in opening numerous restaurants, a national catering company, a culinary consultation firm and two cookbooks about his favorite genre -- small bites. His most recent passion is inspiring readers to live healthier lives as a Cooking Expert for Pazoo, Inc.

"When I told Pazoo I was running the marathon to raise money for charity, they jumped right in. That's what we're all about! Making a difference with what we have. For me, I have my health and will think about what a gift that is every step of the race," says Chef Eric.

Pazoo.com is supporting Chef Eric's efforts by featuring his "Journey to Fitness" online now through Marathon Day on November 2nd 2014. The website is encouraging its audience to track the progress of his training online and to donate to causes he is passionate about: food and cancer. 100% of all donations and corporate sponsorships of the Million Dollar Marathon Challenge will go to these three charities:

  • No Kid Hungry - Shockingly, one in five children in America struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength's "No Kid Hungry" campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. www.nokidhungry.org

  • Team Continuum - Dedicated to helping cancer patients & their families minimize the burdens of everyday life by providing vital assistance for non-medical essentials like rent and utility bills so they can focus on getting better. www.teamcontinuum.net

  • Community FoodBank - Committed to fighting hunger and poverty in New Jersey by assisting those in need and finding long-term solutions filled with FOOD, HELP and HOPE. www.cfbnj.org

As one of the most decorated chefs in America, Chef Eric's accolades include Chef of the Year honors from the Restaurant Guild of America, Pairsine and International Caterers Association and both Creative Caterer of the Year & Chef of the Year by L'association Internationales de Chefs de Cuisine - the only American chef to ever receive that distinction.
