Staff Update - Chris
Sunday October 14th ACK's Chris, and his wife Kara, took part in the Livestrong Challenge, which for him consisted of a 40 mile bicycle ride and her as a nurse at the rest stations. Chris is an avid cyclist and was very happy to be able to raise money for such a good cause as well as honor the memories of friends and family missed over the years.
You can support the Livestrong Foundation at our stores if you have Yakima roof rack by purchasing Livestrong Endcaps for your roof rack. All proceeds go directly to Livestrong, helping people live with, through, and beyond cancer. It's like a little yellow bracelet for your car.
