Publicist Runs 90 Miles on 90th Birthday For 390 Friends

Hollywood Publicist July Myers Is Inviting 390 of His Friends To Celebrate Running 90 miles for his 90th Birthday, Saluting AmigoDay ™

Legendary Entertainment Publicist Julian Myers, once representing Marilyn Monroe, Gregory Peck, Dennis Weaver, Robert Wagner, and countless movie producers, directors and movies, turned 90 on Washington’s birthday (“We were good buddies…”) February 22. On that day he began a 90-mile run from San Diego to Los Angeles, where he will finish as a competitor in the L.A. Marathon’s 5K race, on Sunday, March 2. So far he has competed in 25 marathons, many of them to publicize AmigoDay.
March 2, too, Julian and his wife, co-founders of AmigoDay, will host 390 friends for dinner at a downtown L.A. restaurant to celebrate the AmigoDay spirit. AmigoDay: Just greet anyone anywhere, your way, any month’s first Sunday.
Julian, who has trademarked AmigoDay, will be interrupting his 90-miler for a few hours to work at and/or attend The Oscars February 24. He has been a member of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for 59 years, currently as president of Julian Myers Public Relations.

America and AmigoDay were both derived from the Latin word for friend, amicus,” Julian points out, “and variations of it are already used in 37 languages. I believe the word amigo has such warmth that it will be adopted by almost all the popular languages. I will visit as many media as possible during my 90-mile jaunt to tell about AmigoDay.”
Julian says, “Running is the best medicine. I estimate that if many of the almost three hundred million people in the U.S. would run a few times a week we would annually save $200,000,000,000 in medical expenses. And think of how many new friends of both sexes – in their running togs – we would all be meeting… AmigoDay is right!”
