Team Beef Spotlights
“I think it’s a great opportunity. By no means do I classify as a runner. I like to run when I can. That’s why Team BEEF is such a great thing. You have all types of runners."
“I think there are a lot of misconceptions about beef and I think that Team Beef helps to educate people and correct those misconceptions."
“Team Beef members are a great resource to the beef industry because we promote the industry every time we wear our jersey, whether we’re running in a big city or a small rural community. Just wearing the jersey or even mentioning the term ‘Team Beef’ really seems to spark interest in the general public, especially at races."
