EAGLE, Colo. — QuietKat Electric Bikes, the leader in off-road eBikes and a Vista Outdoor Inc. (NYSE: VSTO) brand, is proud to support the Walking Mountains Science Center 501(c)3 which allows people to explore nature, gain a scientific understanding, and learn about the wonders of our mountain environment through natural science and sustainability programs. Walking Mountains Science Center held their annual gala with a focus on inspiring environmental stewardship and sustainability. Studies show that people (and brands) with a strong sense of connectedness to nature are more likely to care about and take actions to protect both natural resources and the individual and social well-being of present and future generations.
Sustainability is built into the DNA of our brand. With a QuietKat eBike — as our name implies — backcountry exploration needn’t be loud nor burn fossil fuels. An eBike allows anyone who’s hunting, fishing, camping or merely taking a ride off-road to do so in an environmentally friendly way. At the corporate level, our parent company, Vista Outdoor Inc., was honored for its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) efforts.
The company ranked No. 39 on Investor's Business Daily's 2021 Best ESG Companies list, which recognizes the top 100 businesses with superior ESG ratings in addition to strong fundamentals and technical stock performance. Vista Outdoor believes that sustainable business practices, diversity, stakeholder engagement, and effective corporate governance are critical to the long-term success of its business.
QuietKat donated a Pioneer model electric-bike for the gala’s silent auction; a perfect tool for exploring nature and the great outdoors. We are extremely excited to announce the bike raised $6000 thanks to the generosity of a committed local family.
"We are thankful for the support from QuietKat at our annual fundraising gala. Their contribution of a Pioneer utility electric bike exceeded all expectations; it was one of our most popular items and the funds raised will help us continue to fulfill our mission to inspire environmental stewardship and sustainability through natural science education.” Paul Abling, Marketing and Communications Director. Walking Mountains.
Thank you to all the attendees for your support of the Walking Mountains Science Center and their mission; we look forward to seeing you, out on the trail!
