Slate Valley Trail Runners Refuel with Stewart’s Shops Chocolate Milk!

Runners drinking chocolate milk refresher

Did you know that chocolate milk is an excellent post-exercise recovery drink? Stewart’s chocolate milk contains high-quality protein and key electrolytes that help you refuel after a good workout. Recently, we were able to donate our delicious Super Rich Whole Chocolate Milk to Slate Valley Trails, Inc. for the very first Slate Valley Scramble.

Slate Valley Trails, Inc. builds and maintains a beautiful trail system throughout Southwestern Vermont, which are free for the community to use! Proceeds from the Slate Valley Scramble will help them grow and maintain these trails, which run for over 40 miles. For the event, runners participated in either an 8K or a half marathon, and then refueled with some delicious Chocolate Milk and Sweet & Salty Car Cups provided by Stewart’s Shops!

While it is a great post-workout drink, our chocolate milk is delicious at any time. In fact, it is so good that Stewart’s Shops chocolate milk was recently named the Best Chocolate Milk in New York State! We were presented this award for both our regular and chocolate milk by Cornell University’s Department of Food Science. At Stewart’s Shops, we pride ourselves on providing fresh, quality milk sourced from local farms, and we are incredibly proud to have received this honor.

Stewart’s Shops is proud to support this event and many others. This past week alone we were able to donate $27,657 to 58 organizations. Check out the listing below:
