Champion continues to support cancer research for the ninth consecutive year.
Champion has a
contract with BRO/Breast Cancer Foundation for Pink October
This year's Champion has designed and manufactured a brand new Pink collection to support Breast Cancer Fund fundraiser.
"Every year around 8,000 women in Sweden are diagnosed with breast cancer and about 1,500 die each year."
- We are very grateful to be able to make this important contribution again in addition to a brand new and expanded custom designed collection. Breast cancer research must continue and we at Champion want to help it do that. If our contribution can give hope to people who are diagnosed with breast cancer and their families, we have succeeded, says Ralph Mühlrad, Managing Director of Champion Northern Europe.
Champion is a market leader in sports apparel and even sports bra in Sweden, and therefore it feels right for Champion to contribute to the fight against breast cancer.
- Research show that physical activity can reduce the risk of getting breast cancer and can reduce the risk of it recurring. It is therefore natural to collaborate with a company in the sporting industry as it is important to promote a healthy life-style, explains Elizabeth Bergsten Nordström, President of the Swedish Breast Cancer Association
Champions Pink products are sold in all XXL stores in Sweden, all Accent stores, NK Sport & Fritid, as well as selected Team Sportia stores including PUB department store in Stockholm.
The companies donate together 20 percent of the sales value of these products to the Breast Cancer Fund. Pink October campaign begins October 1st , 2014.
