At Roam Industry we feel a social responsibility to the local areas we wish to be a part of. Working with rural areas to assist in their development, growth, and expansion. We hope to provide a renewed awareness to the great outdoor opportunities that surround them.
As our business strengthens we feel it is our responsibility to encourage our customers to shop locally and refer our customers to businesses located in Monticello, UT and throughout San Juan County. During races we support local food establishments in lieu of hiring in outside caters, we have developed relations with local stores to source supplies, and hope to continue to develop such relationships.
The Çello Project has long been on the mind of Dustin Randall, who being raised in Monticello (20 min from world class climbing destination Indian Creek), was not exposed to rock climbing or mountain biking until his twenties. The purpose is to bring skiing, climbing, and mountain biking to the attention of the youth and adults living in Monticello by sponsoring a climbing and adventure club. We provide reduced local rates for quality guidance, training, and exposure to what we feel to be life long endeavors. Our cost is simply to help cover the basics of equipment and fuel for transportation—our time during these programs is strictly voluntary. We believe our success to be dependent on the interest and support from the local population. To assist with the cost of equipment we do have some interested companies in contributing to this effort.
“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity…”
― John Muir
