Pittsburgh, PA – July 6, 2012 – RAW Health International, the innovators of the only 100% natural pain relieving topical analgesic products in the world, announced today that they will be hosting several events in Pittsburgh, PA to benefit USA Judo Olympian Nick Delpopolo.

Delpopolo will personally instruct an all-ages Judo seminar at Kim’s Martial Arts & Fitness on Thursday, July 12 and will attend a benefit dinner/silent auction on Friday, July 13 at St. Louise de Marillac Parish in Pittsburgh.
The U.S. government is one of the few governments in the world which does not continuously fund Olympic teams and their athletes. That being said, the United States Olympic Committee and U.S. Olympic athletes, like Delpopolo, rely heavily on donations from the general public and corporate organizations like RAW Health International to support their Olympic endeavors.
According to RAW Health International CEO Ross Marino, “At RAW Health International we take great pride in supporting world-class athletes like Nick. We have an entire team of elite athletes that we refer to as the ‘RAW Dream Team’. We supply our athletes with RAW health products and help support their endeavors through various efforts.”
Marino went on to say, “We are very proud to be a part of Nick’s Olympic journey. 100% of the proceeds from the Judo seminar and benefit dinner, which will also include a silent auction, will go to directly to Nick to help cover travel and other costs related to his Olympic training. Several marquee MMA fighters have provided autographed items for the silent auction, from MMA Legend Frank shamrock to UFC Lightweight Champion Benson Henderson. The support Nick has received from the MMA community, as well as the general public, has been tremendous.”
Delpopolo’s journey from an orphanage in Montenegro to becoming the last American man to secure a spot on the U.S. Olympic judo team, has inspired many to support Nick on his journey to Olympic gold. He has a very solid support team, from fans across the world and organizations like RAW Health, to fellow athletes in the martial arts community, including MMA Legend Frank Shamrock.
Fans and athletes of all ages can train with USA Judo Olympian Nick Delpopolo on Thursday, July 12 at Kim’s Martial Arts & Fitness. The seminar will run from 6:30-9:30pm. Tickets are $30 per person. Each participant will receive a group training session with Nick Delpopolo, a Poster, and a meet & greet autograph/photo session with Nick.
The benefit dinner and silent auction hosted by RAW Health International will take place at 5:00pm on Friday, July 13 at the St. Louise de Marillac Parish in Pittsburgh. “Dinner with an Olympian” tickets are $15 per person.
