For the second consecutive year, HUMMER supports Friends of the Rubicon (FOTR), with a $5,000 donation to provide materials, food and tools for the hundreds of volunteers who work with the organization to maintain the Rubicon.
Friends of the Rubicon is an informal coalition of groups and individuals dedicated to keeping the one of the world's most famous off-road destinations, the Rubicon Trail open and available to off-roaders.
"HUMMER has proven itself to be a significant partner in keeping the Rubicon Trail alive and well, says Del Albright, Friends of the Rubicon founder and trail boss. Albright, who has led FOTR for seven years through his affiliation with the BlueRibbon Coalition (www.sharetrails.org) said that HUMMER has supported the organization like no other manufacturer.
In 2006, HUMMER became the first and only automotive manufacturer to support Friends of the Rubicon.
"The Rubicon Trail is extremely important to HUMMER. Our owners use it for recreation, while HUMMER engineers use the trail to test the capabilities of our products," says Martin Walsh, HUMMER General Manager. "It is our responsibility to ensure the future of off-roading remains a viable hobby for off-road enthusiasts around the globe."
