 HEART AND SOLE CLASSIC, OCT. 31
 FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- ASICS TIGER Corp. has joined forces with the American Heart Association as the official footwear and apparel sponsor of the 12th Annual Heart and Sole Classic.
 The non-competitive event, which includes a 5K walk/run, 10K run and 25K bike ride, will be held at Jamboree Center in Irvine, on Saturday, Oct. 31. The event's festivities will begin at 7:30 a.m., with registration open at 6:30 a.m.
 As the official footwear and apparel sponsor of the fundraiser, ASICS(R) will support the event with a monetary donation, along with a substantial product contribution. The product sponsorship will include ASICS product for the American Heart Association's steering committee, racing singlets for participants in the President's Mile, as well as silent auction packages for the corporate dinner tonight (Oct. 30) and ASICS grand prize packages for the winners of each category of the day's events. The emcees for the event, Ed Arnold of KTLA television, Heidi Miller of Heidi's Frozen Yogurt and Olympian Dwight Stones, will also sport ASICS footwear and apparel at the event.
 "The Heart and Sole Classic provides ASICS with the unique opportunity to promote the business of good health, while giving something back to the local community," says Nancy Larsen, ASICS supervisor of public relations.
 This year, more than 5,000 participants from 200 companies are expected to participate in the Heart and Sole Classic run/walk/bike ride to help raise money to combat heart disease and stroke. Heart disease and stroke kill as many Americans every year as all other causes of death combined. The Heart and Sole Classic is one of the largest and most popular annual corporate and community events in Orange County.
