Mill Valley, CA, January 10, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Criterium Marketing, in conjunction with high-end cycling apparel maker Primal Wear and local retailer Tam Bikes, today announced the launch of a new custom branded cycling race kit for Kiddo!, the Mill Valley based organization whose mission is to support quality educational programs in the arts and other areas for each child in the Mill Valley School District.
The program was initiated by Criterium Marketing to help Kiddo! raise much needed funds through sales of Kiddo! branded cycling apparel. "15% of all sales of these limited edition cycling jerseys and shorts will go to Kiddo!," noted Mark Marinozzi, Principal at Criterium Marketing. "As a local resident and parent of children in the Mill Valley School District, I see every day the effects of Kiddo! in our schools. Our kids and community benefit greatly from the support of the arts, technology, classroom and library aides, P.E. and innovative teaching programs that Kiddo! provides."
"In addition to the financial benefits of selling the Kiddo! race kits to the many Mill Valley residents that are cyclists, we are looking forward to seeing people riding around town wearing the Kiddo! logo and colors while supporting our organization," offered Amy Coleman, Business Programs Manager at Kiddo!. “There are a lot of local parents that ride on Mount Tam, to work or to our schools with their kids every day, so buying and wearing a custom race kit that promotes Kiddo! out on the roads and trails is a win-win.”
