SUPPORTING LIKE-MINDED MISSIONS
We are very excited to announce that Terracea has partnered with the Share Winter Foundation to help support the winter sports participants of the future! Share Winter is a grantmaking organization that provides grants and resources to non-profit organizations by providing access to ski and ride programs across the U.S. They work closely with carefully selected grantees to build efficient, effective, sustainable winter sports programs and pipelines to ongoing winter sports participation. Share Winter currently funds youth learn-to nordic and alpine ski, and snowboard programs. In 2019, Share Winter distributed over $1M USD in grants and resources, funding over 45,000 youth on skis and snowboards across 21 states. Through nationwide partnerships, they strive to make winter sports accessible to a broader, more diverse community, and share winter with 100,000 youth by 2028.
Many youth lack the opportunities that we had to explore the outdoors due to a variety of social and economic circumstances. We feel that everyone deserves those chances and that young people, especially, can benefit from a greater understanding of and appreciation for the outdoors. Because the Appalachian Mountain Club's Youth Opportunities Program (YOP) has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to helping youth learn about and enjoy the outdoors, we continue to support the YOP through jacket donations and other means.
We were fortunate to be chosen as the official jacket sponsor for Spartan Race staff and officiants for the 2018 Iceland Ultra Championship n Reykjavik. Spartan Race chose our Men’s and Women’s insulated jackets due to their durability, comfort and overall ability to withstand the cold Icelandic winds and frigid overnight temperatures during the 24-hour outdoor race. Spartan staff members were impressed by how warm our insulated jackets were, and several of the race staff officiants praised the light weight and lack of dampness thanks to our advanced synthetic insulation. As a true test of character in the face of harsh winter elements, we are proud to report that our jackets stood up to the challenge.
