Metamucil Two Week Challenge Supports HBCUs and The Divine Nine

Metamucil is teaming up with Sheryl Underwood to support HBCUs and The Divine Nine and share benefits of fiber on health and wellbeing

2 week challenge

We love to share posts about how our brands understand a consumer need and work to show up for our people and communities.

Statistics show that African Ancestry consumers are far more likely than other ethnicities to suffer from high cholesterol and diabetes, and Metamucil believes the best way to beat these odds and not become a statistic is to stay healthy from the start.

One way to take care of your health is by taking Metamucil daily.

The Metamucil team has partnered with Sheryl Underwood to step up as a force for good to support HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and The Divine Nine (historically AA fraternities and sororities). Metamucil is on a mission to share the life-changing benefits of psyllium fiber with students and alumni of these organizations.

Take the Metamucil Two Week Challenge and win up to $10,000 in scholarships for your HBCU or Divine Nine Organization!

Together with Sheryl Underwood’s PackRat Foundation for Education and P&G’s Personal Health Care Walmart Team, Metamucil will be donating $65,000 in scholarships to these worthy organizations via the Metamucil Two-Week Challenge.

Through the HBCU and Divine 9 Challenge, Metamucil will donate up to $10,000 in scholarship funds to the schools and Greek organizations with the most sign ups.
