AXA Running America

Mission Product

When ultra-endurance athlete Charlie Engle came to us to talk about running across the Sahara Desert, it was clear that he was the definition of an athlete on a MISSION.

After 111 consecutive days in the most grueling terrain on the planet his plea was simple: “In my 30 plus years of training and competing, there has never been a skin care product that has met my needs.” Charlie needed products that could keep up with him, and we quickly discovered that he wasn’t alone.

We began to hear similar stories from athletes across all sports, men, and women, young and old. From amateur walkers and runners to world-class professionals, athletes all faced the same problems; sunscreens that wouldn’t stay on and would sting their eyes, moisturizers that left them feeling greasy and anti-friction products that needed constant reapplication.

Finally, after decades of pain, suffering and inadequate skin care products, MISSION Product took action.Teaming up with scientists and skin care industry veterans, we’ve established an entirely new category-high-performance, athlete-engineered skincare. Engineered in MISSION Labs, the entire MISSION Product line is designed, and has been proven, to meet the specific needs of athletes and sports enthusiasts across all sports. By providing vital nutrients and antioxidants, MISSION Product is the best equipment for your skin, so athletes can focus on their sport and maximize their performance.

MISSION Product also makes an impact off the field by proudly supporting the charities of its athletes.

Since its acquisition by Foot Locker, Inc. almost 20 years ago, Champs Sports has developed into the Company’s second largest division and one of the leading mall-based athletic footwear and apparel retailers in North America. With 576 stores at year-end 2007, 539 in the United States and 37 in Canada, and which average 5,400 gross square feet, Champs Sports targets the 12-to-25-year-old suburban consumer who is interested in team sports and favours wearing fashion-forward merchandize.

In 2006, Champs Sports continued to distinguish itself from its competition by offering fashion-right products and superior customer service in a clean, consumer friendly environment. After several years of consolidating and remodeling its existing business, Champs Sports increased its store base during 2006 by 20 stores. The Company expects to continue to seek opportunities to open additional Champs Sports stores in North America over the next few years.
