SpartanNash Healthy Athlete of the Year is Jason Gieschen!

SpartanNash’s 2016 Nebraska Healthy Athlete of the Year, Jason Gieschen, will be visiting SpartanNash stores to sign autographs, talk with media and meet customers.

The “SpartanNash Healthy Athlete of the Year” exemplifies a healthy lifestyle and the Special Olympics Oath—“Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”

These athletes must strive for wellness, a balance of the mind, body and spirit. They should eat a well-balanced diet and dedicate time to exercise outside Special Olympics training and competitions. Athletes from around the state were nominated.

The 2016 SpartanNash Nebraska Healthy Athlete is Jason Gieschen. He will be featured on the packaging of bottles of Our Family® brand water, which will appear on store shelves throughout over 40 states.
