Aquaglide - New product launch
Since 2004, Bend, OR based Aquaglide has been developing inflatable watersport and lifestyle products to encourage more activity outside.
With the release of their brand new high performance and ultra-packable kayak in early 2023, they reached out to us with the idea of telling and authentic story of the versatility of the new product and showcasing a brand partner, our very own Human Powered Movement.
Corresponding with the spring release of the Cirrus to specialty and big box retailers nationwide, including REI, Backcountry.com and more, we've hosted multiple Kayak/SUP demos for Aquaglide to extend their reach, awareness and impact on the East Coast.
Reinforcing Aquaglide's commitment to our environment, one lucky winner also walked away with a free Deschutes 110 during our own South Fork Sampler Adventure Race raffle which raised critical dollars for the event beneficiary Catawba Riverkeeper.

The South Fork Sampler Adventure Race raises critical dollars for our non-profit beneficiary while fulfilling the mission to facilitate greater human powered experiences in all of us.
Recreational opportunities throughout the region, a steadfast focus on promoting sustainable practices, and local businesses are all highlighted throughout this public facing event.
Leading up to the event, the local newspaper, the Gaston Gazette, once again ran an article of the event.

Award nomination - Sustain charlotte
For the 2nd year in a row MJ Bratton's consumer facing brand Human Powered Movement has been proudly nominated for the Sustain Charlotte Awards.
This annual awards ceremony and community gathering of elected, entrepreneurial, and environmentally minded leaders in the greater Charlotte region has celebrated a wide range of organizations that prioritize eco-friendly business practices in their work.
This year's ceremony is on the eve of our South Fork Sampler Adventure Race, so we will not be able to attend (as we did in 2022) but we are honored to be a part of such an important event to elevate, celebrate and honor those that have prioritized doing what is right for our environment over everything else.
