Chaco is pleased to announce that their Flip-Out fundraiser, a Chaco flip sale where all proceeds were donated to the Conservation Alliance, was a huge success, raising over $14,000 at the recent Outdoor Retailer trade show. Each show, a selection of industry manufacturers sell outdoor products to benefit the Conservation Alliance, whose mission is to fund community-based campaigns protecting threatened wild habitats and areas where outdoor enthusiasts recreate. Chaco was the top fundraiser for the Bend, Oregon-based organization, selling over 1,000 limited edition sandals over the course of the four-day show.

“Since becoming a member, almost 15 years ago, Chaco has been a important supporter of our organization,” according to Serena Bishop Gordon, Conservation Alliance program associate. “For the second 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 provides a pure connection to a lifetime of adventure. What started as a sandal for river guides has evolved into sandal, shoe and boot designs offering Chaco accessibility to every day adventures for all types of people. All Chaco footwear features the LUVSEATâ„¢, a contoured platform that ensures a supported, properly aligned and comfortable stride for any activity. 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. Chaco is a part of Wolverine Worldwide's Outdoor Group that also includes Merrell and Patagonia Footwear. Chaco, 9341 Courtland Drive NE, Rockford, Mich. 49351.
