ADVENTURE MEDICAL KITS RIDE AND WRENCH WITH US!
Adventure Medical Kits has been taking care of Trips for Kids youth participant, volunteer and staff boo boos and scrapes since the company began their journey with us back in 2002. They are part of Tender Corporation, whose mission is to provide innovative, high quality first aid and preparedness products for work, home, and your next adventure. The company is celebrating their 30th Anniversary this year! They have a simple tagline that reads, “Be Safe”, which is what having their kits nearby really means.
“We truly appreciate having Adventure Medical Kits on our rides and at our Earn-A-Bike Workshops and Mobile Clinics. It allows everyone some peace of mind,” states Trips for Kids Executive Director, Robert Alan Ping.
When asked why the company decided to partner with Trips for Kids, Jenny Hastings, Marketing Associate for Adventure Medical Kits stated, “We believe in the transformative power of the outdoors and are proud to support Trips for Kids in its mission to enable every child from every community to experience that power safely. We know the confidence that comes with knowing your prepared with the necessary medical supplies, giving kids the assurance they need to adventure bravely.”
For close to two decades, Adventure Medical Kits has believed in our mission and donated both funding and products. Our founder, Marilyn Price, remembers when she first met the company at an industry event, "When I spoke with them for the first time and told them what we did, they just believed in what we were doing and offered to help."
Currently, each of our developing chapters receive both a large and small kit to get them started, while other active chapters can receive refillable kits each year. Trips for Kids Calgary chapter director, Laura Istead shared, “Sometimes our kits remain unopened for the duration of the trip but we love having them along because they have everything we need, just in case!”
As Adventure Medical Kits mentions on their website, having a kit along can be the difference between having an adventure fulfilled or a trip cut short.
“We’d love to tell you that no one ever falls down or gets a scrape while being active, but it happens, which is why these kits are so valuable - they help kids and adults get right back into the fun stuff, “ shared Robert.
