Medalist Tim Morehouse and Fencing World Champion Miles Chamley-Watson. The
sweepstakes will run from September 30 – October 31, 2013 and can be entered

"As an Olympic athlete, I have always powered my days with delicious and
healthy food. Sabra hummus has been a favorite part of my training for years,
and I am so excited to partner with them to bring my sport to kids across the
country," said Tim Morehouse. "Most people have seen fencing on TV during the
summer Olympics, but may not realize how easily accessible it is, or the
profound impact it can have on a child's physical and mental development.
Fencing changed my entire life, and I want every child in the country to have
the opportunity to try the sport. With Sabra's help, we hope to bring fencing
to one million children in the next ten years."
The winning school will receive 30 sets of KIDS KIT Fencing Equipment from
Absolute Fencing Gear, professional fencing instructor training from the FITS
staff, a special demonstration by Olympic Silver Medalist Tim Morehouse and
World Champion Miles Chamley-Watson, and a Sabra Hummus Healthy Snacks Prize
The ease of access is one of fencing's main draws. Unlike many sports, fencing
does not require specialized fields or courts and can be played in any open
space fromcafeterias to classrooms, making it perfect for urban areas with
limited space for physical education.
"Be it cooking, traveling, or even fencing, we want to give everyone the
opportunity to pursue the things they are passionate about and dip life to the
fullest," said Greg Greene, Sabra Marketing Director. "We are so inspired by
Olympic athletes who give back and are proud to team with Morehouse to bring
fencing to schools."
Sabra is the maker of the country's best selling hummus, as well as more than
a dozen varieties of delicious dips and spreads, including fresh refrigerated
salsa, all natural guacamole and Greek yogurt vegetable dip. For more
