Pelotonia


One Goal. End Cancer.

Pelotonia


One Goal. End Cancer.

 

Pelotonia is a grass roots organization founded in 2008 with one goal: End Cancer. The weekend of cycling brings more than 10 thousand riders to Central Ohio. The model of the 3-day event is simple: Pelotonia’s operating expenses are covered by generous funding partners so that 100% of every dollar raised by riders, virtual riders, and volunteers goes directly to fund cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center—Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. 

Zest Juice Co. is proud to sponsor the fundraising event each summer!

While our bikers raise funds for the race, Zest Juice Co. launches a limited edition smoothie, The Ride. The Ride is a delicious smoothie packed with phytochemicals and rich in carotenoids, flavonoids and polyphenols. $1 of every The Ride Smoothie purchase will go directly to Pelotonia. 

One of the things Zest loves about being a Columbus based company is the support Central Ohioans have for local businesses and organizations. Zest thrives on keeping our fundraising support local as well, to build a happier, healthier community.

Nationwide Children's Hospital


Nationwide Children's Hospital


 

Zest Juice Co. is a proud sponsor of Nationwide Children’s Hospital, On Our Sleeves movement.

Mental health is a crisis in America and especially for children, teens and young adults. And because these groups cannot always speak for themselves, we need to give them a voice. We believe mental health is equally important as physical health, and we are doing our part to make a difference.

 During the month of May, Zest will be donating $1 from every Smoothie of the Month sold. Together, we will take a stand for the 1 in 5 kids in our community living with mental illness. We ask that you stand with us. Learn more about how you can make a difference by joining On Our Sleeves, the movement to transform pediatric mental health.

CBJ Foundation


CBJ Foundation


 

The Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the health and wellness of children in Central Ohio. The  Foundation focuses its time, resources, and financial support to helping kids get healthy and stay active. The CBJ Foundation supports organizations around Columbus that are making a difference in the areas of pediatric cancer, reading, fitness through play, and the growth and development of amateur hockey. 

Established in March 2000 by team founder John H. McConnell, the vision was to create a philanthropic arm of the NHL franchise to give the Blue Jackets players, coaches and staff a chance to give back to the community they represent. 

Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded nearly $3 million dollars in monetary grants and donated more than $50,000 in autographed merchandise to local non-profits for fundraising efforts. 

The Foundation is committed to securing partnerships with local organizations dedicated to raising public awareness and financial support for the health and wellness of the children in Central Ohio. These efforts have proven to have a measurable impact on children’s physical fitness, nutrition, education, and safety. In addition, the Foundation partners with the CBJ to bring attention to the ice and make hockey more affordable for local families. 

Earlier this year, Zest Juice Co. was a proud sponsor of the CannonBall fundraiser event. Zest donated cold pressed juice for a specialty cocktail. The CannonBall is a community building event which helps benefit the Blue Jacket's Foundation's ongoing support of youth health and wellness in Central Ohio.

Thirst Relief International


Thirst Relief International


 

Did you know nearly 2 billion people lack access to sanitary drinking water? Every year nearly one million children die due to water related illnesses. 

Thirst Relief International is committed to providing access to clean water for these deserving communities. The clean water methods vary depending on the location, community and amount of people who need access. The nonprofit organization operates with funds by generous donors to provide humanitarian and disaster relief to those in need. 

Zest Juice Co. is passionate about the life-saving mission of Thirst Relief International, so we are donating $1 of EVERY ACTIVATED CHARCOAL LEMONADE you purchase directly to the organization. $10 gives a person clean water for 25 years!

Thank you for supporting the organizations we help. It’s pretty cool to think you could be helping give someone clean drinking water by just drinking one of our Activated Charcoal Lemonades. For more information about Thirst Relief International click here:
