Medicines Global, a non-profit organization dedicated to delivering medicines and humanitarian supplies to under-served regions of the world, has added Cascade Designs as a sustaining sponsor.
The sponsorship includes a yearly $5,000 donation and will aid in the expansion of Medicines Global into South America according to the organization's executive director, Janice Belson.
Carry Porter, Director of Sponsorship Management, for Cascade Designs, states, "As people, our highest calling is to make a positive contribution to the world around us - wherever we are. Because we and the outdoor industry as a whole make our living helping people explore the globe, supporting Medicines Global is a natural choice. Through them, we not only contribute to the many communities that embrace our outdoor athletes, we also enable adventure travelers to do the same."
The latest sponsorship announcement comes on the heels of Medicines Global's fourth successful mission to Nepal delivering $100,000 of medicines and supplies to hospitals in Kathmandu, and health posts and Tibetan refugee camps along the Annapurna Trail.
Sponsors for the November mission included RLX Polo Ralph Lauren, W.L. Gore, Vasque/Red Wing, Leki USA, Adventure Medical Kits, BodyGlide, The North Face, Helly Hansen, Whole Foods Market, Brunton, Thai Air, and ROI Recreation Outfitters of Canada.
