The Cleveland Leader
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, what better way to show your support for the cause than buying workout gear that’s not only cute, but funds research for finding a cure. Many women will be participating runs or walks this month to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research, and there is no shortage of pink ribbon themed exercise gear to go around.
We’ve picked out some of our favorite apparel, footwear, and accessories that will have you exercising with purpose!
Under Armour’s Spine Running Shoe, $99.99
1. For the runner, gear up with Under Armour’s signature Spine Running Shoe. They’re both sturdy and lightweight for long distance miles thanks to a light outsole that actually mimics the human spine. With all Under Armour Power In Pink™ products, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to national breast cancer charities and medical centers.
2. As far as walking shoes go, New Balance’s 860 walking shoe was ranked the “Best Walking Shoe” in 2011 by Health Magazine. It combines the flexibility and feel of a running shoe, with the support and cushioning of a walking shoe. New Balance will contribute 5% of the suggested retail price of sales from the Lace Up For The Cure® Collection, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $500,000 each year to Susan G. Komen® through 2012.
3. Make strides for the cure in these Asics GT-1000™ PR running sneakers. If the bold pink color didn’t hook you, these shoes offer performance fit and cushioning designed for those with a normal to medium arch in their foot. For every pair of GT-1000™ PR running shoes that are sold from October 1st to October 31st, Asics will donate $2.00 to Christina Applegate’s Right Action For Women fund, a charitable services fund of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), to help provide assistance to women who are at increased risk for breast cancer.
