ISIS AWARDS ANNUAL GODDESS FUND SCHOLARSHIP
Fund Rewards Inspirational Women with Mindful Outdoor Retreats

BURLINGTON, Vermont ( July 17, 2007) –ISIS, known for its commitment to design, innovation, fit and performance in apparel for active women, announces that Dawn Wood from Kalamazoo, Michigan is the winner of its second annual Goddess Fund Scholarship. The Isis Goddess Fund offers one woman each year, the opportunity to participate in a transformational retreat at the Chipeta Sun Lodge hosted by Mind Over Mountains of Ridgway, Colorado. Ms. Wood was selected from for her love of outdoors as well as her extensive community involvement including creating and running a non-profit organization dedicated to providing wilderness right of passage programs for teen girls. The ISIS Goddess Fund acknowledges inspirational women of all ages and all walks of life for their often unrecognized deeds, commitment to their communities or mentorship to a younger generation of women.

“In the process of running ISIS, we have been inspired by women who have found ways to sidestep the conventional. They go out of their way to help their communities, break through challenges, climb peaks and touch the lives of others. These women have the sprit and the passion that we believe in and that drives ISIS products and our company mission,” said Carolyn Cooke, co-founder of ISIS. “Dawn is the perfect example of a woman who exhibits incredible strength, grace and determination to their work, families, friends and themselves.”

As a winner of the 2007 Goddess Fund Scholarship, Ms. Woods will attend Mind of Mountain's “Power of the Present” retreat which takes place this summer in Ridgway, Colorado at the Chipeta Sun Lodge. The retreat thoughtfully combines physical, mental and spiritual experiences to offer participants a new perspective on their personal growth.
