Pactimo Supports Rebuilding in Haiti Via HOPE Worldwide

December 19, 2011

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – DEC 19, 2011 – Pactimo, a leading provider of premium technical athletic apparel, is partnering with HOPE worldwide to support the continuing rebuilding of Haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. The seismic event and its many aftershocks destroyed large swaths of the capitol, killed thousands, and left up to one million homeless. HOPE worldwide was an immediate presence in the relief effort and has now transitioned into long-term rebuilding programs including a children’s center, school and housing for homeless families.

“In this holiday season, Pactimo is happy to serve as a catalyst in the provision of care to the people of Haiti,” said Frank Kim, Pactimo Chief Executive Officer. “In order to maximize participation, we’ve deeply discounted our Ascent line of shorts so that as many as possible can be involved in the excellent work of HOPE worldwide.”

“HOPE worldwide is very grateful for Pactimo’s generous support of earthquake victims in Haiti in great need, as well as the company’s commitment to improving this world by helping our neighbor,” said David Blenko, VP of Development for HOPE worldwide.

From December 19-21, customers can purchase cycling shorts, and for each pair Pactimo will make a $10 donation to HOPE worldwide’s Haiti programs. The company plans similar efforts in 2012 as well.

In 2018, Dirty Kanza organizers added a more extreme option to the event: the 350-mile DKXL. This feat of endurance pits riders against rough roads and weather that can swing from oppressive heat to hailstorms and headwinds. Participants ride through an entire day and night with no support other than what they can carry or find at stores along the route.
