The partnership, launching in conjunction with the National Park Service Centennial year, empowers Americans to get outdoors and explore.
“We are very excited to be a partner of the National Park Foundation and especially at such a milestone moment in national park history,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, president of TomTom, Inc. “TomTom inspires life’s adventures and we are honored to help accomplish this by partnering with an organization that shares in our passion for, and belief in, outdoor exploration.”
“National parks are incredible natural, cultural, and historical resources that offer countless activities that promote active, healthy lifestyles,” said Angela Hearn, interim senior vice president of marketing, communications and corporate partnerships at the National Park Foundation. “Through our partnership with TomTom, we will work together to help more people discover the endless benefits of connecting with their national parks.”
