The one-off special pink range in women’s sizes includes the new Eco Spandex and UV Active tops, sports caps and hooded beach towel.
For each item purchased Zhik will donate 10% of the retail price to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). All funds raised will go to supporting life-changing research to help the foundation achieve their vision of zero deaths from breast cancer.
Associate Professor Cleola Anderiesz, CEO NBCF comments, “It’s fantastic that brands like Zhik are getting on board to help support and promote Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Our vital support for research to end deaths from breast cancer is entirely funded by public donations. This creative campaign from Zhik will help spread the message across the sailing community of the importance of breast cancer research.”
Natasha Sullivan, Head of Marketing at Zhik adds, “Breast cancer is still far too prevalent, everywhere. The impact it has on the individual, their families and friends can be absolutely devastating. Zhik are delighted to be supporting this fundraising campaign, along with our Team Sailors who will be wearing the tops throughout October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
The distinctive pink tops will be worn by the Australian Sailing Team at the Women’s ILCA 6 World Championships in Texas, during October 2022. Zhik Ambassador Camile La Quante will also sport the new range at the 470 Class World Championships in Israel. As will other Ambassadors Dee Caffari, Hattie Rogers and Olivia Piana.”
All special edition Zhik pink garments can be purchased from www.Zhik.com and local Zhik dealers. The range will be available from 4 October and while stocks last.
