MALVERN, Pa., Oct. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ExtremeTerrain, a growing e-commerce retailer of aftermarket Jeep Wrangler parts based in Chester County, PA, is excited to announce its sponsorship of Philadelphia Outward Bound School, a local charity that focuses on adventure-based education.
ExtremeTerrain has donated $15,000 to the program and pledged to match up to $100,000 of employee's donations as well. The initial donation is enough to send 2 classes of students on a 5-day backpacking or canoeing expedition where they will learn the skills they need to assume leadership roles and how to take positive approaches to life's challenges, which is at the center of Outward Bound's philosophy.
On Friday October 21st, three ExtremeTerrain employees accepted the challenge to take part in the program "Building Adventure," where they rappel down 29 stories from atop of a Center City Philadelphia skyscraper. Along with the Co-Founders Andrew and Steve Voudouris, three employees were chosen through company-wide voting to join them—employees who embodied one of ExtremeTerrain's core values: Ambitious.
All 5 of the participants made their way down to the city from the Malvern headquarters in two of the ExtremeTerrain Wranglers that are heavily modified for ambitious adventures off-road.
ExtremeTerrain is humbled and honored to be able to work with Philadelphia Outward Bound Schools to help get children out in the wilderness to learn lifelong values and skills that will further them personally as well as professionally. In the future, ExtremeTerrain will continue to work with Philadelphia Outward Bound School by sponsoring outdoor classes for children in the Spring. While rappelling down the side of a building was an exciting adventure that was ideal for a group of Jeep enthusiasts, providing access to education outside of the classroom was the true reward of the day.

Located just outside Philadelphia, PA, ExtremeTerrain is dedicated to providing Jeep Wrangler owners with the best parts at the best prices while also ensuring the conservation and protection of off-road trails.
