In just a few days, around 2000 people signed the petition requesting that 'The Great Run Company' end its partnership with 'Herbalife.'
Perhaps it's just a coincidence, but since the article (below) was posted this morning, 'Herbalife's' sponsorship deal with 'The Great Run Company' has been cancelled and 'Herbalife's' logo has already vanished from 'The Great Run Company's' Website.
Having taken into account feedback, we have decided not to proceed with a partnership with Herbalife.
More than half a century of quantifiable evidence, proves beyond all reasonable doubt that:
- what has become popularly-known as 'Multi-Level Marketing' is nothing more than an absurd, cultic, economic pseudo-science.
- the impressive-sounding made-up term 'MLM,' is, therefore, part of an extensive, thought-stopping, non-traditional jargon which has been developed, and constantly-repeated, by the instigators, and associates, of various, copy-cat, major, and minor, ongoing organised crime groups (hiding behind labyrinths of legally-registered corporate structures) to shut-down the critical, and evaluative, faculties of victims, and of casual observers, in order to perpetrate, and dissimulate, a series of blame-the-victim closed-market swindles or pyramid scams (dressed up as 'legitimate direct selling income opportunites'), and related advance-fee frauds (dressed up as 'legitimate training and motivation, self-betterment, programs, recruitment leads, lead generation systems,' etc.).
- the latest attempts by the bosses of the 'MLM' front-company known as 'Herbalife' to infiltrate traditional culture in the UK (via sponsorship of 'The Great Run Company') forms part of an overall pattern of ongoing major racketeering activity (as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisations Act, 1970).
The Great North Run was created in 1981 when popular European and Commonwealth middle-distance running champion, Brendan Foster, organised a half marathon in his native North-East England. Since then, the Great North Run has developed into the world’s most-celebrated half marathon and the UK’s most-popular running event with almost 60,000 participants.
In March 2015 Nova International became The Great Run Company.
