Fresh-Aire UV’s Patriot IAQ Helps Fund Injured Afghanistan Veteran’s Mt. Kilimanjaro Climb

Triplegic injured warrior Adam Keys completed his bucket list by trekking the 19,341-foot-high peak of Tanzania’s Mt. Kilimanjaro this year—thanks, in part, to donations from Fresh-Aire UV and its Patriot IAQ program to veterans’ charity Warrior Events.

Patriot IAQ is an indoor air quality equipment dealer program created by Fresh-Aire UV where a portion of each sale’s proceeds are donated to veterans’ charities.

Fresh-Aire UV presented a check in December to Warrior Events, which helps partially fund veterans’ events, such as Keys’ five-day mountain climb and the incurred costs for Tanzanian trail guides, an EMT, supplies and travel. The 26-year-old Keys was the sole survivor when a truck transporting U.S. Army paratroopers was blown up by an Afghanistan roadside bomb in 2010. More than 100 surgeries later, Keys offered his inspirational soaring achievement as a tribute to his fallen comrades—featured on CBS This Morning’s “Pushing the Limits” Series and Fox and Friends television shows.

The climbing effort propagated other veteran funding successes, such as Keys’ “adamkeys1stepforward” Facebook fundraising page that now gives 33 percent of its donations to Warrior Events.

Patriot IAQ dealers promote Fresh-Aire UV’s Blue Tube UV, APCO and other HVAC indoor air quality products under the Patriot IAQ brand. The branded program exists solely for the purposes of donating a percent of profits to military veteran charities.
