B$Z: Craghoppers Announces Winner of “Adventure Awaits” Sweepstakes

Craghoppers USA is pleased to announce that they have chosen a winner for their 2015 “Adventure Awaits” Sweepstakes. Emily Meagher, of Eugene, Oregon, has won a 10-day, luxury National Geographic Adventure for two to the Galapagos Islands. In addition, Emily and her companion will be completely outfitted with Craghoppers apparel for the trip.

As the officially licensed apparel partner of the National Geographic Society, Craghoppers celebrated their relationship with an incredible giveaway. Expeditions choices included an 8-day Peruvian Adventure to explore the land of the Ancient Inca, an 8-day sea kayaking and hiking exploration of Alaska’s Inside Passage, and a 10-day journey to the Galapagos Islands.

“I was in disbelief when I received the email that said I won. I reread it several times and then had my best friend read it as well. What an amazing thing to win!” said winner Emily Meagher. “I cannot wait to travel to another country, to see wildlife I've only ever read about or seen on TV. I am looking forward to an adventure on the sea”.

“Craghoppers and the National Geographic Society could not be more pleased to give this trip away,” says Lindsey Hayes, CEO of Craghoppers North America. “The partnership is a significant vehicle for enabling our commitment to protecting the far corners of the earth and we hope that sending a lucky winner there will help drive visibility for the brand and awareness for the great work that the National Geographic Society does.”
