Bridge II Sports is thrilled to announce that our good friend and long-time supporter Lock Laces® have made an incredibly generous donation of $30,000 to fund a new truck ensuring BIIS programming can continue throughout the community for years to come.
“We continue to be impressed by the positive impact that Bridge ll Sports is having in the life of people with disabilities. We were excited to help with the funding of a new truck so that their mission can continue to expand. Given the nature of our product, we believe that Lock Laces® can add a helpful benefit to a person with a disability’s daily life”stated Frank Sutton, Lock Laces® CEO.
Lock Laces® are the original and #1 no-tie shoelaces. With Lock Laces®, you can easily slip your shoes on and off– no more tying! Lock Laces® have become a favorite of elite athletes, kids, seniors and people with disabilities because of their convenience and efficiency.
“We are grateful beyond words for this gift from Lock Laces®! They have always seen the vision of Bridge II Sports to change lives through adapted sports and also understand the important logistical needs to make that vision a reality in the lives of our athletes” Ashley Thomas, Founder and Executive Director of Bridge II Sports.
“We are proud to be aligned with a company that sees the needs of people with disability and has created a product that builds confidence and empowerment each and every day when people put their shoes on.”
Lock Laces® generously assisted with the purchase of our 20-person accessible bus in 2016 and have donated thousands of Lock Laces® to our athletes over the years.
Currently Bridge II Sports utilizes a 1998 Ford f-150 loving named Ol’ Blue to haul trailers of adapted equipment to sports programs, community awareness events, school initiatives and tournaments throughout the Triangle, state and beyond. With 250,000 miles this valued, and arguable most important, member of the Bridge II Sports is in desperate need of a replacement.
Lock Laces® has set the challenge for our Bridge II Sports faithful, family and friends to step up and join them in support by raising the additional funds needed to keep our NEW TRUCK running. As you know, it takes funds to keep a vehicle maintained, registered and fueled all year long. Your donation has a very real and tangible impact in making Bridge II Sports programs possible.
