National search for “Summit Samplers”


Arizona's high point Humphreys Peak, 12,633'

Hi Hikers, Did you know that, in addition to their primitive-by-modern-standards climbing gear, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay carried Grape-Nuts cereal with them on their May 29, 1953 summit of Mt. Everest? It’s true---this iconic breakfast staple has seen the top of the world.
In celebration of the 60th anniversary of this historical achievement, the folks at Post Grape-Nuts Fit have asked me to invite YOU to apply to be part of a commemorative, nationwide event to be held on or around May 29, 2013.  Up to 60 hikers will be selected as “Summit Samplers”.  Each participant will be provided with a packet of goodies and Grape-Nuts samples to hand out while hiking up a local peak (big or small) of their choice.  In addition, “samplers” who complete their journey and send in photos documenting their climb will receive $500!  How’s that for doing what you’d probably do anyway? What have you got to loose---log on to this website to apply.  But hurry, entries are only being accepted through FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013.
