When news broke last week that Lance Armstrong had given up his fight against the United States Anti-Doping Agency, which subsequently stripped him of his seven Tour de France titles and banned him from professional cycling, several companies were quick to show their support of Armstrong and his Livestrong foundation. Johnson Health Tech (JHT), Cottage Grove, WI, was one of those companies.
In a statement released last Friday, JHT, which produces Livestrong-branded cycles, reaffirmed its support of Armstrong and the foundation.
"JHT fully supports the great work they do helping families throughout the world overcome cancer's financial, practical and emotional challenges," the company said in a statement. "With each purchase from our Livestrong line of fitness equipment, a donation is made toward their cause. We look forward to continuing our support of Armstrong and the foundation as they work tirelessly to support people and families affected by cancer, especially those in underserved communities."
According to the company, JHT has two Livestrong-branded commercial indoor cycles that it distributes globally and more than 12 Livestrong-branded consumer products in the United States. JHT did not disclose a percentage of total business comprised by Livestrong products to Club Industry.
