Big Twin BMW is proud to announce that we are recipients of the 2013 Bronze Level Distinguished Environmental Stewardship Award for our recycling efforts associated with the Idaho Youth Education Recycling Partnership (iYERP).
iYERP is part of the John William Jackson Fund, which distributes grants to support its mission of advancing academic excellence, performing arts and outdoor sporting for Idaho youth. In 2000 the fund was created by Jackie and William “Action” Jackson as a memorial to their son, John William Jackson, who died in a climbing accident in Central Asia while conducting graduate research. The John William Jackson fund has granted over $470,00 to Idaho organizations since its inception.
iYERP recycling, which was created as a part of the fund in 2007, not only has raised over $250,000 in funds for Idaho youth but also has kept over a million pounds of scrap out of the land fill, benefitting both Idaho’s children and its environment.
The fund is run by volunteers and does not fund advertising campaigns so that nearly 100% of its funds are distributed to grant recipients. Big Twin Motorcycles encourages you to support the John William Jackson Fund.
