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.

17th Battlefield to Vermont - B2VT
17th Battlefield to Vermont - B2VT

April 17, 2017

June 10, 2017 will be the 17th annual edition of the B2VT ride (formerly known as the B2B). In 2014 the course was altered to accommodate the new start and finish points but still contained most of the original B2B course (but was even more hilly!). The 2017 B2VT Ride will continue to be one of the most challenging single day rides in New England. By design, it is not for everyone.  This ride is for cyclists who are physically and mentally tough, don’t whine, excel in the face of challenges, know the rules of the road and can ride 130+ miles to the finish safely and without their hands being held. While it is an epic ride, it is not for novice riders nor the faint of heart…

A Smart Investment In Women and Water

March 22, 2017

Together with Water.org, we have helped empower smart women like Aisyah through access to safe water. 

Aisyah is a wife, a mother, and a farmer. Most critical to all of her roles is time. Asiyah explained, “Time to work my rice fields means more money I can make for my family; our life is better.” As a smart business woman growing one of Indonesia’s most desired crops, Aisyah recognized lack of access to water at home as the main obstacle keeping her from having the time needed to farm.
