J.uly is a time for sunshine, swimsuits and serious sweat exercises. It's also a time to make sure we all stay cool, covered, and safe. For this reason, MISSION Instant Cooling Gear and its pro-athlete founders are committed to spreading the importance of the National Month for thermal security in July.
Co-founder Chris Valletta, a former NFL player, suffered from heat-related illnesses during his college and professional football days – so this initiative is personal to him.
Mission is so excited about thermal safety that they have invested in the Mission Heat Safety Lab at UConn's Korey Stringer Institute. Mission products have been tested on athletes with state-of-the-art equipment such as high-speed treadmills, advanced bicycle ergometers and a comprehensive physiological monitoring system – so you know these items are real!
“Mission and the Heat Safety Coalition have the ultimate goal of improving thermal safety in the consumer and industrial sectors. These refrigerated products are a means of getting there. "-DR. Casa, CEO, Korey Stringer Institute, Professor, Department of Kinesiology, Director, Athletic Training Education.
