RecoFit donating portion of Armcoolers sales to velodrome

BOULDER, CO (BRAIN) — RecoFit Compression Gear is donating $3 from the online sales of its Armcoolers sleeves to help with the completion of the Boulder Valley Velodrome in Erie, Colorado.

The outdoor wooden velodrome was due to open later this month. However it was heavily damaged by a wind storm on Saturday. Its opening has now been pushed back indefinitely.

“We are part of a huge cycling community that feels badly about what happened to a facility that is going to be well used and supported by local cyclists,” said RecoFit owner Susan Eastman Walton.  “The sales of our Armcoolers can help support the funding effort that is going to be needed to get the velodrome back on schedule quickly.” 

The Armcoolers retail for $34.95 on recofit.co.  The fundraising campaign will run through August 23.
