Hummer donates US$5,000 to Friends of the Rubicon
Detroit, Michigan – For the second consecutive year, Hummer has pledged its support for Friends of the Rubicon, with a US$5,000 donation to provide materials, food and tools for 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 Rubicon Trail open and available to off-road drivers. In 2006, Hummer became the first and only automotive manufacturer to support the coalition.
“The Rubicon Trail is extremely important to Hummer,” says Martin Walsh, Hummer General Manager. “Our owners use it for recreation, while Hummer engineers use the trail to test the capabilities of our products. It is our responsibility to ensure the future of off-roading remains a viable hobby for off-road enthusiasts around the globe.”
