The North Face contributes to Protect Our Winters “Hot Planet/Cool Athletes"


Big props to The North Face who continued their support of Protect Our Winters, with a generous contribution directed towards POW’s youth education platform, “Hot Planet/Cool Athletes”. The North Face has been the Presenting Partner of “Hot Planet/Cool Athletes” since it’s inception in 2011 and with POW have reached over 8,000 students in 19 high schools nationwide.
This past year, the in-school climate assembly program has provided athletes such as: Gretchen Bleiler, Saga Cattabriga-Alosa, Nick Martini, Dana Flahr, Jeremy Jones and Dylan Hood with a platform to communicate directly with high school students about climate change’s effects on our winter season and has inspired many to develop their own solutions-based ideas and to become future climate leaders.
The 2012 schedule kicks off at schools in the Aspen/Roaring Fork Valley during Winter X Games the week of January 23rd.
Thank you to The North Face for their continued and generous support of POW and for their commitment to environmental leadership.
