Picky Bars Announces Lifepoints Adventure Grants

March 10, 2017

Energy bar company to award grants to see people to achieve their ultimate adventure

BEND, Oregon. (March 13, 2017) – Staying true to its mission to “Fuel Great Experiences,” Picky Bars—the Oregon-based energy bar company founded by professional athletes Jesse Thomas, Lauren Fleshman, and Steph Bruce—has opened a second round of Lifepoints Adventure Grants to help get people’s ultimate adventures up and running.

Inspired by the awe-inspiring #lifepoints shots submitted by Picky Bars fans, the Lifepoints Adventure Grants were created to break down the barriers holding people back from making their ultimate dream adventures a reality. Whether it be motivation, fear, gear, or funds, a big trip they’ve been saving up for or a spontaneous microadventure, Picky Bars wants to help those in need get their next trip off the ground.

Last year’s Lifepoints Adventure Grant funded trips included a mother/daughter culinary tour of San Francisco, a community paddle of the Kaw River, and an excursion around Iceland’s Ring Road in a camper van.

A total of three Lifepoints Adventure Grants, each worth $1,000, are available. Categories this year focus on the connections that come from exploration and experience: Family & Friends, Community Spirit, and Soloist. Whether it’s taking the kids to the Grand Canyon, volunteering for an overseas home build project, or fulfilling the dream of a multi-day backpacking trip, this is the kick in the pants (/pocketbook) to finally make it happen.

Adventurers interested can apply online at pickybars.com/adventuregrants. Applications are being accepted through Sunday, March 26, 2017, at 11:59 pm PDT.
