Viking Coca-Cola Bottling Company is directing a portion of its sales of the products Powerade and Powerade Zero back to participating area high schools under a program called “Powerade 4 Schools.”

Money will be collected on all Powerade and Powerade Zero products sold throughout the Viking Coca-Cola Bottling Co. territory and then divided to high schools based on a percentage of purchased beverages.

The program’s goal is to encourage active lifestyles through the support of school athletic programs, within the Viking Coca-Cola Bottling Co. franchise territory.

Participating area high-schools include: Rush City High School, North Branch Area High School,  Mora High School, Chisago Lakes High School, Pine City High School, Cambridge-Isanti High School, and Ogilvie High School.
