Durham-based consumer product company expands partnership, offering free admission to active military and sponsorship of Military Appreciation Night.
DURHAM, North Carolina – Implus, a growing and innovative provider of athletic, fitness, and outdoor accessories, is proud to announce an expanded partnership with the Durham Bulls as the Official Military Sponsor for the 2016 baseball season. The partnership provides free tickets for active duty military to Durham Bulls regular–season games and helps honor those who served at the Bulls’ July 9th Military Appreciation Night.
The free admission program has been sponsored by Implus since 2011, and covers all Durham Bulls regular-season games at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Throughout the season, all fans are encouraged to tag @durhambulls and #solesforsoldiers while at the game. For each post, Implus will send a pair of insoles or accessories to active duty military overseas. In addition, those who post will be entered to win luxury suite tickets for the Bulls’ July 9th Military Appreciation game.
"Implus is proud to continue bringing our country's heroes and their families together," said Todd Vore, President of Implus. "The Durham Bulls have been a great local partner, along with producing some great baseball.” The RTP-based accessory company has been continually active in helping area military by providing accessories to thousands of men and women serving overseas.
“We are very appreciative of the men and women serving our country,” said Bulls General Manager Mike Birling. “We are fortunate to have great sponsors like Implus to help us support the people in the military. This program will provide them with great entertainment throughout the spring and summer.”
