Beijing, June 16, 2008 - FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, today announced the May Grand Prize winner of its China marketing campaign Live to Win. Ms. Zheng Bei, from Zhenjiang city, Jiangsu Province, became the lucky one to have a dinner with the famous China badminton champion, Cai Yun, who also comes from Jiangsu Province in East China.
FedEx China and the China National Badminton Team jointly launched the Live to Win campaign in January 2008. Each month, 300 winners and one grand prize winner are chosen through lucky draw. Winners receive a limited edition set of “Lucky Q Wah Dolls” designed in the likeness of Mr. Li Yongbo, chief coach of China National Badminton Team and the star players. The grand prize winner of “Who Joins The Dinner” gains an opportunity to dine with the featured badminton champion of that month under FedEx’s arrangement.
“I’m a faithful fan of China National Badminton Team,” said Zheng Bei, the May grand prize winner from Jiangsu Province. “Thank you FedEx for this great campaign, which provides me with an opportunity to dine and chat with Cai Yun. It is really a coincidence that we are both from Jiangsu Province. I sincerely hope Cai Yun and the China National Badminton Team can continue to achieve great results in 2008.”
