Mountainsmith has committed to be the official 2013 trekking pole sponsor for Paradox Sports. Paradox Sports provides inspiration, opportunities and adaptive equipment to the disabled community, empowering their pursuit of a life of excellence through human-powered outdoor sports. The poles will specifically be used for the three Camp Paradox events that will take place this coming summer where families with one or more disabled members are encouraged to spend a weekend hiking, camping, playing and enjoying the great outdoors together. The partnership is a natural for both companies as they are neighbors in the foothills of Golden, Colorado each with a passion for the outdoors and all that it has to offer.
â€œMountainsmith is pleased to announce our partnership with Paradox Sports as the official 2013 trekking pole sponsor,â€ commented Jay Getzel, sales and marketing manager for Mountainsmith. â€œWe are inspired by the passion of their team and the athletes they support. We appreciate the intimate connection they have with the outdoors and the inspirational stories of overcoming adversity and challenges through recreation.â€
â€œMountainsmith and Paradox Sports are both born from the wilds and wonders of the Colorado Rocky Mountains,â€ added Tim O’Neill, executive director for Paradox Sports. â€œThe Paradox Sports programming and mission align perfectly with Mountainsmith’s desire to bring people outside to both recreate and to become stewards of the wild places we love. We both foster a community that provides care for those in need built around opportunities to explore our place in the world.â€
