Tulsa, OK – This spring season, RunGoodGear is proudly contributing to Operation Gratitude’s mission to support U.S. service members worldwide. Every limited edition RunGood USA hat awarded or sold will send out a RunGood Care Kit and Operation Gratitude Care Package. At final tables this season, the RunGood Poker Series will award ten limited edition hats which in turn will send ten care kits out. Care kits will be gathered and hand delivered along with funds for shipping to join awaiting care packages going out at the end of the season.
With a goal of 500 care kits, set at the start of the season, RunGoodGear is excited to announce that an anonymous donor has come forward to go one-for-one with RunGoodGear's goal. Every hat awarded or sold will now send two care kits (up to 500).
The first two spring stops vaulted the company towards its goal with 190/500 care kits set to go out. Four stops remain on the RGPS spring schedule, including:
