We are proud to announce that Vasque is the latest to donate to our 2015 top hiker prize package. Vasque’s legacy goes back a half century to the tradition of handmade mountain boots inspired by the Alps.
Today, Vasque is a a leader in performance footwear for trail running, backpacking, and hiking in any season.
Free boots from Vasque – you choose your style and size!
Vasque has generously donated a gift card good for any pair of boots or shoes that Vasque makes. That’s right – the lucky winner will be able to pick out a brand new pair of Vasque boots or shoes in his or her own style and size!
If you want a testament to the quality of Vasque boots, look no further than the record-setting Appalachian Trail thruhike in 2013 by Neva “Chipmunk” Warren.
At age 15, she became the youngest solo thru-hiker of the AT, wearing Vasque boots every step of the way.
In fact, the boots in which she finished her hike are encased in glass and proudly displayed by HIKE for Mental Health at Trail Days, the Gathering, and all our public events.
We are honored by Vasque’s participation in our top hiker prize package, a $1,100 collection of top-quality hiking and backpacking gear from leading brands that will be awarded to our top fundraising hiker in 2015.
