Tukwila, WA – In its ongoing efforts to support adventures that make a difference, ExOfficio is providing Proper Walk participants with adventure travel apparel for their August 2008 walk.

Proper Walk 2008 is the fourth biannual walkathon created by Michael Farley. Each of its ten participants agrees to raise a minimum of $10,000 to assist AIDS orphans of Makindu, Kenya and to help to raise AIDS awareness for the AIDS pandemic. The Walk will take place August 11 – 21 in the Rift Valley in Kenya's northern frontier.

“The Proper Walks have raised over $180,000 for AIDS orphans” said Karen Sain, ExOfficio Brand Manager. “ExOfficio is very proud to be working with such a devoted and enthusiastic group.”
