Rockford, Mich. (August 8, 2012) – Chaco is pleased to announce that their Flip-Out fundraiser, a Chaco flip sandal sale to benefit the Conservation Alliance, was a huge success. Chaco raised over $10,000 at the recent Outdoor Retailer trade show. The donation supports the Conservation Alliance whose mission is to fund community-based campaigns protecting threatened wild habitats and areas where outdoor enthusiasts adventure.

“Since becoming a member, almost 16 years ago, Chaco has been a important supporter of our organization,” according to Serena Bishop Gordon, Conservation Alliance program associate. “For the third year in a row, Chaco has hosted a fundraising event on our behalf at the Summer Outdoor Retailer Show, raising meaningful funds to support the mission of The Conservation Alliance; protecting North America's last wild places; the places where we all love to recreate.”

Born on the river in 1989, Chaco is authentic outdoor footwear that inspires a lifetime of adventure. What started as a sandal for river guides has evolved into sandal, shoe, and boot designs that offer Chaco's uncompromised support no matter where you roam. All Chaco footwear features the LUVSEATâ„¢, a uniquely contoured platform that properly aligns and supports your foot and body to enable a lifetime of adventure. As a result, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) has awarded the Seal of Acceptance to many Chaco footwear styles. The APMA Seal is intended to raise awareness by identifying products of exceptional quality that are manufactured with comfort, health, and safety in mind. Simply put, Chaco is fit for adventure.
