GCI Outdoor, in partnership with Dick’s Sporting Goods, is proud to introduce the new Freedom Rocker, a portable folding rocking chair to benefit America’s veterans. For each Freedom Rocker sold in 2020, GCI will donate $1 per chair to both K9s for Warriors and Homes for Our Troops, with a contribution of up to $50,000 for each charity.
K9s For Warriors is the nation’s largest provider of service dogs to military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and/or Military Sexual Trauma. They provide each warrior with a service canine, equipment, training, certification, seminars, legal instruction, vet care, housing, home cooked meals, unconditional love and listening, and a life-time of wrap-around services.
The K9s program is 100% free for the veteran. As of April 2020, they have paired over 622 service dogs with veterans.
Homes For Our Troops is an organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Homes for Our Troops builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
With its patriotic design, the Freedom Rocker serves as a proud reminder to celebrate and honor our veterans and active service members. The new Freedom Rocker is based off of the Freestyle Rocker and is designed with our patented Spring-Action Rocking Technology™, which allows users to rock smoothly while enjoying time outdoors. Built for camping, sitting around a fire pit, or even watching fireworks, the Freedom Rocker features a convenient carry handle, beverage holder and mesh backrest for added comfort. Folding down flat, this rocker is easy to open and close with GCI’s patented EAZY-FOLD™ Technology and supports up to 250 pounds.
Available now, the Freedom Rocker retails for $59.99 and will be exclusively sold at DICK’S Sporting Goods online and in-store/curb-side pick-up (where available).
