Osprey Packs, Inc. has announced a support effort for the Breast Cancer Fund, a national non-profit dedicated to identifying and eliminating the environmental causes of breast cancer. Osprey has produced a special, limited-edition version of their popular women's multisport hydration pack, the Verve 10. Four dollars ($4) of the purchase price of each pack will be donated to the Breast Cancer Fund, with a minimum of $5000 guaranteed by Osprey. The pack is currently available at select U.S. Osprey dealers and at www.ospreypacks.com.
The special edition Verve 10 is amethyst colored with a front pocket screen of the iconic Breast Cancer Fund prayer flags that carry messages of love and healing and help to support breast cancer prevention. As with all Osprey packs, the Verve 10 is free of BPA, PVC/pthalates and triclosan.
"We are committed to the Breast Cancer Fund and their vital work in making the world a healthier and safer place for everyone," said Gareth Martins, marketing director of Osprey. "This season, we are proud to show our continued support of this important organization through these special edition packs designed specifically for women."
Osprey has been a supporter of the Breast Cancer Fund for several years. Since 2005, they have been a corporate sponsor of Climb Against the Odds, the organization's annual mountaineering expedition that has raised over $5 million to support the organization's work to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer. Last year's ascent of California's Mount Shasta was especially personal for Osprey, as the team included Osprey ProDeal & Program Pack Manager Sarah Harper Burke. This year, Osprey is supporting Osprey Rocky Mountain territory sales representative, Leta Sharpe, in the Breast Cancer Fund's Climb Against the Odds that will be taking place on Mount Shasta in June.
The women-specific Verve 10 is ideal for gals on the go, be it mountain biking, trail running or day hiking. In addition to Osprey's signature Hydraulics features – the BPA- and PVC-free HydraForm reservoir and HydraLock System, which holds the water load securely, compressing as it empties, thus minimizing water slosh and bounce – the Verve 10 is equipped with:
Breast Cancer Fund Special Edition Verve 10- MSRP: $84
