DIET COKE KICKS IT OLD SCHOOL TO “CAPTURE THE FLAG”

AND HELP RAISE AWARENESS FOR HEART HEALTH IN ATLANTA!

WHAT: A fun “Capture the Flag” game to raise awareness and funds for heart health!

Clark Atlanta University will have four teams of six students competing in games of "Capture the Flag" and the finalists will play for DeKalb Medical and West End Medical Center. The winning team will receive $10,000 and even the losing group will walk away with $5,000. Diet Coke® will present both health organizations with checks at the end of the game. V-103's Elle Duncan will be Master of Ceremonies and local celebrities will be Honorary Team Captains.

The Heart Truth®, a national awareness campaign sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), is embraced by millions of people who share the goal of better heart health for all women. For the fourth year in a row, Diet Coke is supporting the campaign to raise awareness and funding for heart health programs across the country. Join us by visiting DietCoke.com/HeartTruth where you can capture flags, triggering donations. The more people play, the more money is raised.

WHEN: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Finals game starts near 2:00 pm with check presentation and award ceremony near 2:30 pm.

WHERE: Clark Atlanta University’s Vivian Henderson Gym, 650 Fair St., Atlanta, GA 30314 – The Game will take place, rain or shine as it will be played on the basketball court!

WHY: Heart disease is the number one killer of American women, but a healthy lifestyle can reduce the risk of heart disease by as much as 82 percent. While women’s awareness of the risk of heart disease is increasing, one third of women still underestimate their personal risk of heart disease. The Heart Truth® is embraced by millions of people who share the goal of better heart health for women. For the fourth year in a row, Diet Coke is using its cans and bottles, advertising and digital assets to motivate people to join the cause and help raise money for heart health programs across the country.
