NORTH VANCOUVER, Canada, April 6, 2020
In late February of 2020, Arc’teryx LEAF teamed up with SOC-F to deliver an ice climbing experience to a group of Veterans from the US Special Operations community.
“For over 15 years, we have been making apparel and gear for the most demanding military and law enforcement end-users on the planet, it was time for us to find a way to give back”, said Stephen Church, LEAF Business Unit Director. “We were inspired by the exceptional work done by SOC-F who has been a driving force in getting help to families in need. We reached out and asked them what we could do together.”
This led to the creation of SOC-F/Arc’teryx LEAF Ice Climbing Experience. The event took place in Bozeman, Montana, where the group was hosted by the Station Foundation. Their purpose is to help navigate the complex terrain of reintegration into civilian life.
Arc’teryx LEAF is planning to expand upon this concept in different regions of the world, with organizations who support Veterans. The objective is to bring the outdoors to those who stand to benefit from it the most.
