Group provides outdoor recreation opportunities for wounded soldiers

Arctic Cat has announced that it is sponsoring Patriots and Heroes Outdoors (PHO). PHO is a non-profit organization that provides outdoor activities for Purple Heart recipients and military members with service-related injuries.

Arctic Cat will be donating ATVs and UTVs for use by participants in PHO organized hunting trips. As well, Arctic Cat will donate products to be auctioned at PHO’s annual fundraiser. PHO members and affiliates will also be eligible for discounts on Arctic Cat parts and garments.

“We are very grateful for Arctic Cat’s support of our mission,” says Rod Jay, president of Patriots and Heroes Outdoors. “Our goal is to provide a therapeutic break from the daily routine for our wounded warriors and their loved ones, and help improve their quality of life.”

PHO arranges hunting and fishing excursions and outdoor activities. The group also offers educational support to service families by pursuing grants, endowments, scholarships and other financial contributions.

“All of us at Arctic Cat appreciate the service and sacrifice of our country’s military service men and women, and we are proud to support the work of Patriots and Heroes Outdoors,” says Greg Williamson, Arctic Cat’s chief marketing officer. “Like PHO, we are passionate about empowering others to enjoy the great outdoors. Through this partnership, we hope to bring opportunities for fun and adventure to our veterans.”
