Snowboarding with a Cause
From day one, giving back has always been a goal at Launch. Over the years we have been fortunate enough to work with numerous non-profits by contributing to various events and initiatives. As we grow as a brand we want to expand on that notion of philanthropy by working directly with these organizations to help them realize their goals. Check out our amazing partners below and be sure to check the events feed often as we are always looking to get involved!
Mission Statment: Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit foundation that advocates early detection and a healthy, active, and sustainable lifestyle as the best means for breast cancer prevention. Founded in 1996, B4BC empowers young people to make positive choices that promote lifelong wellness through outreach, prevention, sustainability, and support programs.
How We Help: A portion of the proceeds from sales of all Launch Women's Snowboards and select apparel pieces goes directly to Boarding for Breast Cancer. Shop the B4BC Collection now!

Mission Statment: To facilitate fun and fair events for all ages across the country, to attract snowboarders and freeskiers, promote their development, provide member education, and influence the future of our sports.
How We Help: In the early stages of Launch, we partnered USASA making custom snowboards as awards for podium finishers at individual USASA regional series contests. Today, we are going back to our roots and are now proud to announce a national partnership with USASA! We will be on site at USASA Nationals at Copper and who knows what the future has in store. The possibilities are endless!

Mission Statment: Outkast 4 Life Foundation has been created to inspire today’s youth to live proactively and healthy through sports and other activities. Our goal is to provide support through education and outreach about the effects of drugs and alcohol abuse. We will be contributing to local and national organizations that share our mission.
How We Help: Outkast 4 Life Foundation is based in our backyard and teaming up with them in their infancy stages was a no brainer. For this season we teamed up to make Launch x Outkast 4 Life Hitmakers with a custom graphic in Kevin's honor. All proceeds from the sale of the limited edition custom decks went directly to the foundation!
