When it comes to the outdoors a place we all love to call home some brands within the industry truly care about our well being. And more importantly the continued growth of outdoor participants, sustainability and ethical practices across the board.
Recently one of our advertisers Pjur Active makers of the legendary 2 Skin Anti Chafing Gel were in Germany for the tour de magellan. We are proud to announce that the Pjur brand ambasdadrs raised over 20,000 euros by simply riding their bicycles around Cologne, Germany. How cool is that.
Annually the magellan netzwerke GmbH donates 1 euro per kilometer per participant. Over 147,000 euros have been raised for charitable causes since the start of these charitable racing events, supporting projects like the Kinderhilfe Organtransplantation e.V. (KiO), the giving back fund, and much more.
This year saw some two hundred cyclists ready to tackle the 110-kilometer (68 mile) ride around Cologne.
Talk about an amazing way to donate to charity while getting one heck of a workout.

I recently returned from a trip down to El Salvador and was honored to be able to take some donations down from a few North American based outdoor brands. It’s easy to forget “how to other half lives” especially while we live and recreate in the ski town bubble.
Before heading down to El Salvador this year I contacted a friend to see what I could bring, his reply “used swim trunks”, wow talk about humbling. Another one of my friends down in El Salvador named Manuel Pereira has been collection donations for the children of La Libertad, this is what inspired me to give back. Thanks Mani!!
Huge thanks go out to my friends at TGR, Treehouse Communications, Spy and VonZipper and the wonderful loving people of EL Salvador. Your donations will continue to go a long way!
