Posted September 29, 2015 by Bruce

BRECKENRIDGE, CO – (August 3, 2015) – Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC), is pleased to announce that it has received a large donation of quality outdoor clothing and gear from renowned outdoor products manufacturer Marmot Mountain LLC. The clothing and gear, valued at over $20,000, will be issued to BOEC students and staff, and for use at BOEC events.

“We are extremely pleased and honored to be recognized by Marmot. Many of our students with disabilities come to our courses under-prepared and providing use of quality rain and snow wear, gloves, warm clothing, etc. is critical to their enjoyment and success on course. In addition, providing quality outdoor wear to our staff is a huge benefit for their hard work,” says Bruce Fitch, Executive Director of BOEC.

Marmot Mountain LLC, based in Rohnert Park, CA, is world-renowned for their high quality outdoor wear and equipment and has long been a strong supporter of non-profit causes. “Marmot is pleased to offer this support to BOEC. We are honored to provide our products to an often under-recognized outdoor enthusiast—those with disabilities and special needs, including wounded warriors and their families,” says Tom Fritz, VP of Marketing for Marmot. “Marmot has been supporting wounded warrior programs for many years since the Iran conflict took one of our own staff into the National Guard and away from home for close to two years. We are all pleased to continue to make a difference,” adds Laura Miera, VP of Technical Product Development for Marmot. See more on their website, www.marmot.com.
