Events on June 7th Value Conservation Through Recreation and Stewardship
For the fourth consecutive year, Adventure Medical Kits, a brand of Tender Corporation, is a top tier sponsor for the American Hiking Society and supporter of National Trails Day. National Trails Day takes place on June 7th, and is the nation’s largest annual celebration of America’s outstanding trails and outdoor recreation. In support of the 2014 National Trails Day events across the country, Adventure Medical Kits donated over 20,000 samples of Natrapel 8-hour and Ben’s tick and insect repellents, and Easy Access Bandages. They additionally donated over three hundred medical kits and nine hundred bottles of insect repellent and tubes of After Bite to local National Trail’s Day events nationwide.
“Like Adventure Medical Kits, the American Hiking Society values the hiking experience and keeping hikers safe while on the trail,” commented Frank Meyer, Chief Marketing Officer at Tender Corporation. “Our partnership with the American Hiking Society and support of National Trails Day is a further way to promote and protect foot trails and their surrounding natural areas. It is our way of giving back to the great outdoors that allows us to explore.”
“With the support of visionary sponsors like Adventure Medical Kits, National Trails Day continues to grow and engage more Americans of all walks of life to value conservation through recreation and become active citizens through stewardship and volunteerism,” said Gregory Miller, President of American Hiking Society.
