187 Days To Mt. Kilimanjaro – Parker’s Climb Launches Amazing Sporting Brand To Benefit Team Fox

It is with great pleasure that Parker’s Climb launches Peter Glenn of Vermont to our retail line up to benefit our 2011 Team Fox Event! I cannot think of a better retail partner to represent in keeping with our sporting mission towards climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in July 2011 to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation.   Geoffrey and I are extremely fortunate that we have a Peter Glenn store in Ft. Lauderdale.  We have already purchased things there for our previous two climbs of Mt. Katahdin and Mt. Greylock, and I just placed our first order on line!  Every order placed through the Parker’s Climb website will mean a donation of 100% of the proceeds to the the Michael J. Fox Foundation so I hope you will do all of your sporting shopping through Parker’s Climb!!

About Peter Glenn of Vermont

Since 1958, Peter Glenn has been at the forefront of a growing outdoor sports market. The first Peter Glenn store opened in response to a demand for ski equipment and clothing that was not being met. Today, Peter Glenn stores carry equipment, accessories and clothing for a wide variety of outdoor sports such as skiing, snowboarding, water skiing, wakeboarding, in-line skating and adventure travel. Today there are 20 Peter Glenn stores with locations nationwide.

As a ski coach Ned Hamilton noticed a high demand for ski equipment that was not being met by local merchants. Ned, the proprietor of a men’s clothing shop, stocked the basement of his store with ski clothing and equipment. As his new department flourished, Ned opened his first shop that sold ski equipment, clothing and accessories as well as ladies apparel. The new store was named after Ned’s son, Peter Glenn Hamilton.

Fifty years and twenty stores later, Peter Glenn leads the market in outdoor adventure sports. From the latest Merrell hiking boot to the newest Salomon skis, you’ll find just what you’re looking for. By carrying the best names in clothing, equipment and accessories, Peter Glenn continues to keep itself on the cutting edge. In addition to offering an extensive selection of top-of-the-line products, Peter Glenn is staffed by highly knowledgeable sales professionals. Whether a seasoned skier or snowboarder or a novice, Peter Glenn’s sales staff will offer you as much or as little assistance as you need. Each department in our stores is staffed by a specialist.
