DENVER — Skins(TM), the global leader in the development and manufacturing of advanced, gradient compression equipment, and the Colorado Youth Corps Association (CYCA), a statewide coalition of youth conservation corps, announced today the formation of an Official Supplier agreement.
Skins(TM) will donate compression apparel for youth corps members statewide to wear outside while creating bike paths, restoring trails and protecting important wildlife habitats. This donation is only the beginning of a long-term partnership that will include educational-program sponsorship, participation in environmentally conscious events and much more. By collaborating in cross-promotional activities and capitalizing on joint resources, CYCA and Skins(TM) are able to improve the physical performance and health of youth corps members spending weeks in the field year-round while executing demanding physical tasks.
CYCA and Skins(TM) share a common belief that business practices should occur within the focus of environmental sustainability — both organizations have adopted a mentality that puts the environment, and our communities, first. This partnership highlights both Skins(TM)’ mission to improve the health, well-being and athletic performance of people across the globe, along with CYCA’s commitment to ensuring Colorado’s natural resources and pristine environment are maintained and enhanced for years to come.
Headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, Skins(TM) combines athletics and medical science to create performance-enhancing apparel that is unparalleled in the industry. Their BioAcceleration compression garments are independently proven to enhance muscle power, increase endurance and speed recovery, and are worn by professional athletes and active consumers worldwide.
The Colorado Youth Corps Association supports a coalition of 11 youth conservation corps that enroll 1,200 young people annually across the state. Teams work to complete projects that ultimately provide safe and inspiring outdoor recreational opportunities for Colorado residents.
