Rugged Ridge Awards Grant To Support Recreational Access
POCATELLO, ID (November 19, 2013) -- Omix-ADA/Rugged Ridge, a world-wide aftermarket manufacturer of Jeep parts has awarded a generous grant of $5000 to the BlueRibbon Coalition in support of responsible off-road related public land management practices and programs. The Rugged Ridge Trail Access Grant Program will help support the BRC mission to protect trail access on public lands nationwide.
Rugged Ridge, a division of Omix-ADA, the market-leader for aftermarket accessories for Jeeps, has created a new off-road grant program to promote and protect responsible OHV recreation on public lands. "We are happy to help organizations like BRC leverage this grant money into projects that will improve our trail access now and into the future," said Al Azadi, President/Owner of Omix-ADA.
"BRC will ensure this grant goes towards a legacy of trail access that will stand well into the future as we work on several issues of critical importance to full-size 4WD rigs," said Del Albright, Interim Director of Operations. "Without the involvement of BRC and help from businesses like Omix-ADA, our access to 4WD trails would drop off the table, and we're not going to let that happen," Albright concluded.
John Parrinello, President, BRC added: "The support from this new grant program will ensure our ability to actively participate in these important issues. Rugged Ridge and Omix-ADA are to be commended for their fiscal commitment to land use issues."
