CRUNCH PAK® TO SUPPORT YOUTH SUMMER MOUNTAIN BIKE PROGRAM
Company forms three-year education partnership with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance
CASHMERE, Wash. (June 24, 2019) — Crunch Pak®, the sliced apple and pear specialist, formed a three-year education partnership with Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance Central to support its summer mountain bike youth camp program.
Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance Central Chapter offers five-day mountain bike youth camps at Squilchuck State Park throughout the summer to kids ages 6-12.
Evergreen Central’s mountain bike youth camps teach the basics of mountain biking and provide an opportunity for youth to experience the joy and fun of mountain biking in a positive and safe learning environment, said Travis Hornby, president, Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance Central Chapter.
Megan Wade, product development and marketing manager, Crunch Pak, said, “The goals of Evergreen’s education program include empowering kids to stay active and healthy through recreation, helping them build confidence by learning new skills and encouraging them to become stewards and advocates for natural outdoor spaces by connecting them with their local forest and trails. That aligns with our mission at Crunch Pak to provide fresh, nutritious food as part of a healthy life style.”
As a three-year partner of the program, Crunch Pak joins other local businesses in purchasing bicycles and helmets for the mountain bike youth camps as well as underwriting camp fees.
Evergreen Central will be working with the Wenatchee and East Wenatchee School Districts and the local YMCA to identify more than 40 kids to attend mountain bike youth camps this summer.
