October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and this year, Wrightsock is proud to help make a difference. With new, unique Pink Ribbon designs of our popular Cool Mesh II and Run Luxe running socks, we’re contributing to the fight against breast cancer. For every pair of our new Pink Ribbon socks you purchase, Wrightsock will donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Why Breast Cancer Research & Support Matters
In 2022 alone, an estimated 287,850 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Additionally, another 2,710 men are estimated to be diagnosed with the disease. These numbers are especially jarring when you consider that neither of these totals includes the many women and men who will experience breast cancer reoccurrences. In 2022, nearly 44,000 people are expected to die from breast cancer.
Fortunately, donations to the Susan G. Komen Foundation directly support essential breast cancer research and resources for those afflicted with the disease.
What is the Susan G. Komen Foundation?
The Susan G. Komen Foundation is committed to making a real difference in the fight against breast cancer. The Susan G. Komen foundation takes a multi-pronged approach to help women and men diagnosed with the disease. By supporting research studies, the Susan G. Komen Foundation helps contribute to medical science’s understanding of breast cancer and the potential for advances in treatment. But they also provide numerous forms of support and resources for those who have breast cancer.
Their support includes:
- Treatment Assistance
- The Susan G. Komen Breast Care Helpline
- Information and Resources Regarding Breast Cancer & Treatments
The Susan G. Foundation has become a groundbreaking and essential resource for ongoing breast cancer research and support–which is why Wrightsock is so proud to support them.
About Our Pink Ribbon Socks
Fans of our Coolmesh II and Run Luxe products will be happy to know they can now support breast cancer awareness and research with our running socks. Our Coolmesh II are anti-blister socks that use Dual-Layer technology to reduce friction and moisture, protecting feet from the conditions that allow blisters to form. And our single-layer Run Luxe keeps your feet protected with a minimal feel.
Our Coolmesh II and Run Luxe socks are perfect for running, light hiking, sports, cycling–or any of the day-to-day rigors we put our feet through. And since our socks are made with Repreve recycled materials, they’ll protect your feet just as they help protect the earth.
