The Walking Company Sponsors Walkathon
Environment for the Americas welcomes The Walking Company as a national sponsor of Walk on the Wild Side. The Walking Company is a perfect match for a conservation fundraiser, because they are all about walking in comfort -- from brands such as ECCO, ABEO and Dansko.
To help Walk on the Wild Side, The Walking Company is contributing the event t-shirts to all of our 2012 conservation fundraisers. This means that Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory, Magee Marsh, and other host sites will receive shirts to give their walkers, raise more funds, and promote their events.
We have enough shirts to invite another organization to join. Ready to host your first Walk on the Wild Side? Contact Eve at email@example.com.Why host a Walk on the Wild Side?
