October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we’re proud to support the efforts of The Breast Cancer Fund — an organization that works to connect the dots between breast cancer and exposures to chemicals and radiation in our everyday environments. They translate the growing body of scientific evidence linking breast cancer and environmental exposures into public education and advocacy campaigns that protect our health and reduce breast cancer risk.
The Breast Cancer Fund helps to transform how our society thinks about and uses chemicals and radiation, with the goal of preventing breast cancer and sustaining health and life. Their team of experts finds practical solutions so that we, our children, grandchildren and planet can thrive. Now that’s something we can get behind!
Here are 3 things you can do to raise awareness about breast cancer and support The Breast Cancer Fund…
1. Knowledge is power. Head over the The Breast Cancer Fund’s website and learn what you can do to prevent breast cancer and protect you and your family from environmental toxins.
2. Support The Breast Cancer Fund. Your dollars will go straight to exposing environmental causes of the disease.
3. Buy a new hydration pack. We produced a special edition Verve 10 in amethyst with a front pocket screen of the Breast Cancer Fund’s iconic prayer flags. From the sale of each pack, $4 of the purchase price will be donated to the the Breast Cancer Fund. Purchase here.
This summer, Osprey participated in 88Bikes’ Village project in our own backyard of Navajo Nation. The project focuses on small rural locations where bikes can have a major impact. We have long supported the incredible work of 88Bikes because we believe that bikes really can change the world.
To continue our support of 88Bikes, we will be selling our new Zealot 1o packs at Interbike next week. Packs are $35 with 100% of the proceeds going straight to getting more kids on bikes. If you’ll be at Interbike, please swing by the booth and pick up a pack and support 88Bikes!
