Examiner.com – Featuring Osprey’s Support of Minneapolis Panjshir Tour – September 1st, 2011

September 18, 2011

From my own involvement with the Minneapolis Panjshir Tour coming up October 8th, I’m seeing first-hand that companies do in fact have a conscience and their generosity goes epic distances. Osprey, LIN socks, Vasque, Overland Equipment, Aircraft Demolition, Polar Bottle and Timbuk2 all believe enough in a cause to sponsor a bike ride that benefits women and children in Afghanistan (if you ride a bike, your muscles and sweat equity are both needed and appreciated!).

So to companies like, Osprey LIN socks, Vasque, Overland Equipment, Aircraft Demolition, Polar Bottle and Timbuk2, I thank you again for coming on board to support the inaugural Minneapolis Panjshir Tour. To Sierra Designs, Terramar, Clif Bar, Manzella, Sierra Trading Post, Outdoor Research, Sole, Chaco, Merrell, and FRS, I thank you, and countless others thank you, for always keeping your radars open and on.
