Boulder, CO — Polar Bottle® is excited to announce that the company collected more than $800 at the Cyclists for Jamestown flood relief fundraiser Saturday, October 19th. The Polar Bottle® events team sold custom water bottles at the one-day event, with 100% of the proceeds donated back to the Colorado volunteer group.
“Jamestown is such an important hub for Boulder County cyclists,” said Polar Bottle® Sales Manager Phil Bash. “We’ve been part of the Boulder cycling industry for close to 20 years so we really appreciated the opportunity to participate in this event.”
Jamestown, located just north of the city of Boulder, is a popular local cycling destination and one of the areas hit hardest by the recent Colorado flooding. The Cyclists for Jamestown group was formed post-flood to organize volunteers and help raise money to assist in relief efforts.
“It is awesome to see the cycling community come together to help out this community,” Bash said. “On Saturday, we had people donating two to three times more than we were selling the bottles for.”
Along with the more than $800 sent to the Jamestown group today, Polar Bottle has helped raise more than $500 for general flood relief efforts thanks to an online promotion rewarding customers who donate to relief efforts with a free Colorado flag water bottle (a $14.99 value).
