Golden, Colo. (May 31, 2018)—Adventure® Medical Kits, the leader in first aid kits and survival gear for outdoor adventures and wilderness medicine, has donated $2,583.96 to Big City Mountaineers (BCM). The gift marks Adventure Medical Kit’s third donation to BCM in three years, resulting in over $6,500 in support of BCM’s transformational wilderness experiences for under-resourced youth.

In addition to the in-kind donations, Adventure Medical Kit also provides BCM programs with a full range of first aid supplies based on a program’s region and the activities offered. “Adventure Medical Kits has been a great partner for the last several years,” says Doug Sandok, Corporate Relations Director at BCM. “The medical kits they’ve supplied on our expeditions are the highest quality and prepare instructors to take good care of our participants. We appreciate their investment in ensuring more youth get outside and have a positive first experience.”

“While everyone hopes they never have to use a medical kit on a trip, accidents can happen,” says Frank Meyer, Chief Marketing Officer at Adventure Medical Kits. “We hope these moments offer BCM participants the opportunity to collaborate, learn something new, and take care of one another.”

Adventure Medical Kits will also support Big City Mountaineers’ new initiative, National Summit Day, on August 4, 2018. In conjunction with Backpacker Magazine, BCM encourages people to identify an outdoor adventure that feels meaningful and celebrate the outdoors by spending time outside on August 4th.
