We helped organize and support Breast Cancer events featuring our beautiful new Ballet color - Rose Pink - during the month of October.
One mission of #GreatSolesGives is to spread awareness. With amazing industry events and the power of subscription boxes, we were able to get out there in a BIG way this year.
Sometimes a group can do more than the individual. That is why we took part in Bright Pink's TWO FabFest Fundraisers and the "Power of Pink" event held by Komen Atlanta. We have seen how effective these organizations can be and we just want to provide them the horsepower to exceed their goals.
This year was our biggest contribution to date - both in greenbacks and product. Over $3,000 (and counting!) was donated to the SASS Foundation to help the innovative cancer research they support. We also donated our socks to those that could benefit from the stability most:
What is #GreatSolesGives?
#GreatSolesGives is a national campaign joining a network of fitness studios from coast to coast in creating inspirational, action-packed wellness experiences for their clientele. Great Soles is helping to organize and support special Breast Cancer events that features our beautiful new color - Rose Pink - in our Ballet sock only for the month of October.
Why did we develop a sock that unites fitness and breast cancer?
Physical practices like Pilates, barre, and yoga can be PROFOUNDLY healing – in body and spirit – for women fighting or recovering from Breast Cancer. Benefits include improving cancer related fatigue, weight management, reduce pain and nausea, improve range of motion and cardiovascular, function and muscular strength. That is why we developed a sock specifically to encourage these women
It's also a symbol of collective support. The studio is where a woman wants to come and feel better about herself, especially after major setbacks like a mastectomy or chemotherapy. A studio full of peers wearing this Rose Pink Ballet in support of her and others in the community are fighting breast cancer. Just imagine the impact that could have.
