All week, frenzied shoppers have been coming into the store searching for the perfect gift for the runner on their list. They have no idea what they are looking for, so they are just aimlessly wandering around the store looking for something to jump out at them and proclaim itself the perfect thing. I have good news on two fronts. First of all, we have accounts for anyone who has ever shopped in the store, so we can look up sizing information and previous purchases to ensure you get something they will love. Second, in addition to store gift cards (always a safe option), we now carry Road ID gift cards.
Road IDs are small bracelets or shoe clip-ons with contact information, medical information, and anything else your heart desires. They are, quite literally, life savers. These make perfect stocking stuffers, and EVERYONE who runs, walks, or cycles outdoors needs to have one. While you're at it, it probably makes sense to get one for yourself!
I was writing this article and doing my research to provide you with all of the great information you could ever want to know about Road ID when I came across the excellent little list below on their website. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I decided to share it... Thanks, Road ID! :)
Here are just few reasons you (and the athlete on your list) should make Road ID part of your gear:
1. If you can't speak for yourself, Road ID will speak for you.
2. Road ID enables First Responders to immediately contact family members and friends.
3. Road ID enables family members to provide additional details about your health or give consent for potentially life saving procedures.
4. Road ID enables hospital staff to locate vital medical records.
5. Road ID can communicate medical conditions or allergy information to medical staff.
6. Road ID can prevent serious delays in treatment by saving crucial time during the "golden hour" of medical treatment.
7. It's far better to have Road ID and not need it than to need Road ID and not have it. It's not just a piece of gear, it's peace of mind.
8. Accidents happen far more than you think they do. Each year approximately 450,000 of us are taken to hospitals unconscious and without identification.
9. Road ID looks good on and makes a statement about your athletic lifestyle – not to mention that studies would probably prove that people that wear Road ID are considerably smarter than those that don't.
10. Road ID can save your Life. Period.
Please stop in the store or visit Road ID's website above to learn more and get yourself and your friends/family set up with a Road ID for as little as $19.99!
