It didn't take long for Patrick Peterson to announce his arrival to the NFL. Early in the fourth quarter of his first pro game, the Arizona Cardinal rookie took an 89-yard punt return all the way to the house to pull ahead of the opposing Carolina Panthers.
Off the field, Peterson is working to spread a broader message, one that he hopes will hit home to millions of Americans.
The cornerback/return man has partnered with Wat-Aah, a brand of bottled energy water aimed at kids, to spread the message of healthy hydration and to promote awareness about childhood obesity.
"When I heard the news that this generation of kids could be the first to live shorter lives than their parents due to obesity, I knew I had to make a difference," says Peterson, who also recently participated in the NFL's "Play 60" initiative. "I know it's going to be difficult, because kids today think water is boring, but we need them to change their minds."
We can say that drinking water has never been more enjoyable. The 16.9-ounce bottles of Wat-aah are labeled with lively colors and available in several different varieties:
- Defense: Ultra-Pure Water + Zinc
- Energy: Ultra-Pure Water + Oxygen
- Power: Ultra-Pure Water + Magnesium
- Brain: Ultra-Pure Water + Electrolytes
- Body: Pure Spring Water
Best of all, the drinks contain no sugar.
