Picky Bars Announces Lifepoints Adventure Grant Winners

Following through on its mission to “Fuel Great Experiences,” Picky Bars—the Oregon-based energy bar company founded by professional athletes Jesse Thomas, Lauren Fleshman, and Steph Bruce—has awarded three Lifepoints Adventure Grants, each worth $1,500. Born out of the pang of envy felt after viewing the awe-inspiring #lifepoints shots submitted by Picky Bar fans, the Lifepoints Adventure Grant was created to break down the barriers holding people back from achieving their ultimate dream adventures. Whether it be motivation, fear, gear, or funds, Picky Bars pledged to help those in need get their next trip off the ground.

The three Lifepoints Adventure Grants recipients are:

  • Urban to Outdoors – Kerry and Frank Bouchard, of Manhattan, Kan., will experience the Kaw River Community Paddle in August.
  • City Fix – Pamela and Lauren Jimison, of El Dorado Hills, Calif., now have a late July reservation for the San Francisco Foodie Tour.
  • Open Door – Marina Soucy and Luke Kelly, of Red Hook, NY, plan to live the van life along Iceland’s Ring Road in August.
