Park City, UT – 8/9/2013– RAMP Sports has proudly partnered with SheJumps, a non-profit dedicated to getting girls outside in a fun and educational manner, to provide outdoor experiences in supportive scenarios and encouraging girls to get out and get more involved

As a result of the partnership between RAMP Sports and SheJumps, 14 members of the Boys & Girls Club of Salt Lake City went for a day of standup paddleboarding at Jordanelle State Park, learning team building tactics and outdoor skills. Afterwards, they were guided through the RAMP ski and snowboard factory in Park City, Utah, to see how outdoor products can be made in an eco-friendly way and to see how entrepreneurs can build reality out of a dream, encouraging them to take risks and work hard to achieve their goals.

“We really love helping get kids outside and being part of our local community,” said Michael Kilchenstein, Founder and CESnow of RAMP Sports. “Along with that goes backing local causes, and SheJumps is one that we’re more than happy to support. Vanessa Pierce, our communications director is one of the founders of SheJumps, and we signed up as quickly as we could, knowing their group, their cause and methods.”

RAMP will team up with SheJumps again on Sunday, August 25, to offer a Get The Girls Out day, part of a national campaign offered by SheJumps, to unite women as they support, challenge, mentor, and inspire each other in the outdoor sports world.
