Eden Advocate Amy Purdy is Dancing with the Stars!

Element Advocate Amy Purdy continues to leave us with minds inspired and jaws dropped... First, mastering the Sochi 2014 Paralympics with a Bronze in boardercross, and her next goal... The Glitter Ball Trophy!  If you don't know, now you know... AMY IS DANCING WITH THE STARS!

Still jetlagged, Amy flew straight from Sochi to LA, for the season premier of Dancing with the Stars. Amy and partner, Derek Hough, cha cha'd their way to earn an amazing score of 24. We can't wait to see how they do during the rest of the season!

This season, we've also partnered with Amy, on a limited edition Eagle tee, (portion of all proceeds give back to Amy's non-profit Adaptive Action Sports) and even created a special collection, designed for all her travel, training and tango needs!  Collection shown at right.

We feel extremely lucky to have Amy in our Element family, supporting and partnering with her adventure after adventure.  She is a beautiful representation of what we stand for, and flies the flag true... live, learn, grow!! 
Read Amy's about incredible story of perserverence, and learn how this journey led to starting her non-profit Adaptive Action Sports, in addition to the pursuit of her other passions (modeling, clothing design, and so on) HERE!

Don't forget to join us cheering on Amy and Derek every Monday night at 8 pm on ABC!
