Chaco® footwear successfully hosted its fourth annual flip sale to benefit the Conservation Alliance atthe Outdoor Retailer Summer Market tradeshow. The event raised over $7,000. The donation went directly to the non-profit, which funds community-based campaigns protecting North America’s threatened wild habitats and areas where outdoor enthusiasts adventure.
“The Conservation Alliance is honored to have partnered with Chaco for the fourth annual Chaco Flip Sale at the Outdoor Retailer tradeshow this August,” said Conservation Alliance program associate Serena Bishop Gordon. “These events have raised more than $40,000 over the last four years, and we are grateful for this generous contribution to the Alliance’s work.”
Born on the river in 1989, Chaco builds premium footwear and accessories for outdoor-minded people. What started as sandals for river guides has evolved into an array of footwear: sandals, shoes and boots that all deliver Chaco’s uncompromised support and comfort, no matter where you roam. Every Chaco shoe features the LUVSEAT™, a uniquely contoured platform that properly aligns and supports your foot and body – supporting a lifetime of adventure through healthy alignment. Recognizing this health benefit, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) awarded its Seal of Acceptance to all Chaco footwear styles; The intention of the APMA Seal is to raise awareness by recognizing exceptional-quality products manufactured with comfort, health, and safety in mind. Combining these lifelong health values with a passion for the outdoors, Chaco is, simply, “Fit for Adventure”™.
