CORTEZ, CO (BRAIN)—Osprey Packs will be holding a fundraiser for the nonprofit 88Bikes at the Interbike OutDoor Demo in Las Vegas next month.
On September 20 and 21, Osprey will be offering their cycling-specific Raptor hydration packs in exchange for donations to 88Bikes. Interbike attendees can receive a Raptor 6 pack in exchange for a $20 donation and a Raptor 14 pack in exchange for a $30 donation (while supplies last).
All proceeds from this fundraiser will go to 88Bikes in support of Villages, their fifth and biggest project to date. From June through November 2010, 88Bikes is reaching out to children in Africa, Mongolia, Latin America and the United States, focusing on small rural locations where their bikes can have a major impact. The funds raised through the Osprey event will specifically support 88Bikes efforts to bring bikes to kids in the Navajo Nation.
“We are thrilled to be supporting 88Bikes and their mission to give bikes to kids around the world, including children in our own backyard,” said Gareth Martins, marketing director of Osprey. “With Osprey’s corporate headquarters bordering the Navajo Nation and many of the original team members being Navajo, we feel a very strong connection with this project.”
