Carlsbad, CA (PressExposure) May 19, 2009 -- Red, itchy eyes? Runny nose? Incessant sneezing? Morefocus group, Inc. in Carlsbad, CA is looking for the person with the worst seasonal allergy symptoms, and is ready to reward the video that best illustrates how allergies affect their life on a daily basis.
"Allergy sufferers were really starting to vocalize about their symptoms as the days were getting warmer," said Matt Brown, Vice President of Marketing at morefocus. "We thought this contest was a fun way to ease their pain and also spread the word about some of the allergy resources we have to offer at Learn-About-Allergies.com ( http://learn-about-allergies.com )."
The contest is a part of morefocus's ongoing efforts to promote awareness about the link between seasonal allergies and aging. The company has partnered with Real Age to offer consumers information and resources to help them cope with seasonal allergies while living a healthier, happier lifestyle overall.
RealAge, Inc. is a consumer-health media company and provider of personalized health information and management tools. Their site, RealAge.com ( [http://www.realage.com] ), features the patented Real Age test which provides medically valid metrics that compare biological age to calendar age based upon answers to a variety of health and wellness questions. The site also offers Real Age Assessments and the Real Age Smart Search which provide tips and information to keep users healthy and informed.
"Obviously, we are interested in seeing what participants will submit in their videos for this contest. More than anything, however, we want to ensure that allergy sufferers have the information they need to cope with their allergies now, and for the rest of their lives," said Colin Lucas-Mudd, CEO of morefocus.
Seasonal allergy sufferers are encouraged to submit the most creative exhibition of how their seasonal allergy symptoms get in the way of their day. Do you end up wearing two different colored socks because you can't see in the morning? Does the sight of a bouquet of flowers send you running? The person whose allergy symptoms cause them the most ruckus will be awarded $200 for their creative video submission!
