The Running Road Trip and BOCO Gear Announce Partnership

The Running Road Trip (RRT), a nationwide effort to raise money for Alzheimer’s disease research, announced its tenth sponsor, BOCO Gear. The leader in technical performance headwear, BOCO Gear is now the Exclusive Headwear sponsor of the Running Road Trip and will be providing RRT runners with custom hats to wear during their trip around the United States.

“We’re extremely excited to partner with BOCO Gear,” said RRT Partnership Director Bailee Mulholland. “We really are building this thing from the ground up, and having local brands like BOCO Gear there to support us has given us the base we need to expand our reach nationally. With the help of partners like BOCO Gear and the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund, we expect to continue building on our current momentum to positively impact a lot of people’s lives.”

On June 14, the members of the Boulder-based RRT will pile into a car and begin their epic effort to run in every state in the U.S. to raise money and build awareness for Alzheimer’s disease research. The route, which is already published and available on the RRT website, will take the team around the whole country in 55 days, during which time they will drive over 15,000 miles while completing more than 1,500 miles on foot.

Currently, the RRT is in fundraising mode and could use your help. Check out the RRT’s GoFundMe, which already has more than $1,800 of donations from donors as far away as Australia and England, to contribute to the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.
