GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Nov. 10, 2011 – Pactimo, a leading provider of premium technical athletic apparel, is excited to announce its new partnership with the Bahati Foundation. Pactimo will be the official clothing supplier for the Bahati Foundation Pro Cycling Team for 2012.
The Bahati Foundation was created by Rahsaan Bahati, a pro cyclist since 2001, to inspire and empower underprivileged inner-city youth to rise above their circumstances through the sport of cycling.
“As a world-class cyclist and a champion of youth, Rahsaan is a perfect match with Pactimo’s commitment to support programs that positively affect children in need and provide life changing opportunities,” said Frank Kim, CEO of Pactimo.
Bahati will be the honored guest at the 2011 El Tour de Tucson, America’s largest cycling event with an estimated 9,000 participants. Bahati Foundation team apparel will be introduced at the event, and Bahati himself is scheduled to personally autograph jerseys. Bahati apparel will be available for purchase at www.pactimo.com in the For A Cause gallery, and $20 of each garment sold will be donated to the foundation.
“Rahsaan Bahati has been very involved in the design process personally, and we are excited about the results,” said Karl Heidgen, Pactimo’s VP of Sales.
