A Brave Family

boatBurner is getting behind and supporting brave individuals who face the climb up a difficult mountain in their life, but who fearlessly keep going to conquer the challenge. We started the BRAVE initiative with members of our boatBurner family. Doug’s daughter, Gracie, lives with Type 1 diabetes. This relentless and disruptive disease has rocked the entire Mickschl family. Doug and his wife, Leah, didn’t sit around and wait for a cure. They founded the CURE.

At boatBurner, we believe brave ideas have tremendous power, and we’re proud to bring their vision to life. With every pair of mittens purchased , every penny possible will be donated to one of three organizations that help find a cure. Watch Gracie’s video below.

We want to extend a big thanks to Channel Z, Sister Boss, Lauren Krysti Photography and Bob Pearl Photography in Minneapolis and Explosion Robinson in Brooklyn, New York for helping us tell Gracie’s story.
