(Shanghai, September 28, 2013) – Lasted for five months, the recent popular TV talent show, "2013 Stride Super Boy", wrapped up last night. Stride, as the exclusive title sponsor of the show, offered an advertising contract of RMB one million to Hua Chenyu, the champion of the competition, to further promote the brand story.

Holly Yuan, Marketing Director (Confectionary) of Mondelez China (the former Kraft Foods China), said: "One year after its official launch in China, Stride has created impressive sales numbers and its slogan 'Can’t Stop At All' has also become one of the commonly used catchphrases among the young people. This year, to get Stride even closer to young adults and encourage them to keep challenging themselves, Stride sponsored an entertainment show for the first time globally. Our cooperation with Hunan Satellite TV demonstrates the synergies of two strong players. '2013 Stride Super Boy' attracted more than 300,000 young people to sign up, and during the airing of the show, Stride's sales increased significantly and its brand awareness and reputation were also greatly enhanced."
