WiseChoice Foods is Working to Raise $40,000 for the Non-Profit and Build Community Engagement
Albuquerque, N.M. – March 15, 2022 – WiseChoice Foods LLC, the manufacturer of the frozen pizza brand WisePies Pizza and a certified minority-owned and female-led company based in Albuquerque, N.M., announced today that Albertsons Market has chosen to be the title sponsor of the 2022 WisePies Pizza Run to be held on May 15, 2022, in Albuquerque, NM in the bustling Mesa del Sol development. Albertsons Market has been a retail partner of WisePies Pizza carrying the frozen pizza product line for close to two years. It is operated by United Supermarkets with 95 stores in New Mexico and Texas with roots that go back to 1916. Albertsons Market joins other sponsors that include Netflix, Flyby Provisions, Sol Fitness and Solamente Holistic Health.
This year’s theme, Level Up, is a call to action for WiseChoice Foods to continue their growth, increase visibility for the state of New Mexico as well as to do more in the community. We reflect the theme within the event and t-shirt graphics based on a lighthearted, eighties-themed “Super Mario Brothers” illustration that is overly digitized and ties the visual of the “running pizza guy” jumping in the air to punch a brick scoring him a coveted Hatch green chile. The increased fundraising goal of $40,000 to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of New Mexico also reflects this year’s theme with an increased fundraising commitment.
“WiseChoice Foods has been working to make a positive impact in New Mexico for years,” stated Season Chavez, president of WiseChoice Foods. “Not only do we focus on producing all-natural food products, but we also encourage the community to make healthy lifestyle choices like walking with friends and family, enjoying the beautiful weather that New Mexico offers, participating in outdoor events and giving back to the community. The WisePies Pizza Run achieves all of these objectives offering a fun, family friendly day with a touch of competition with the 1-mile fun run/walk, 5K run and 10k challenge. And of course, you can’t beat the fresh, hot pizza, refreshments, music, and games you’ll find at the end of your event. This year’s attendees will have a blast!”
