Join Fleet Feet Sports, Mizuno Running, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in taking a meaningful step forward to a world where ZERO lives are lost from breast cancer. We are asking for your help in reaching a goal of ZERO more lives lost to this devastating disease. We are uniting together on October 15 to raise funds for breast cancer research and to run/walk a 5K at Howarth Park in honor of those we love who are fighting or have fought this disease. #projectzero
The effects of breast cancer are far-reaching. One in eight women will receive a cancer diagnosis in her lifetime. We're asking for your help in reaching a goal of zero more lives lost to this devastating disease. Throughout October, Mizuno and Fleet Feet Sports, with support from the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, will unite to launch Project Zero, an initiative raising funds for breast cancer research.
At our 5K run/walk we will have pink race bibs for those who are survivors and white race bibs with pink lettering for those supporting a survivor or remembering someone they have lost. A place to write your loved one's name will also be provided on the race bib.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research. The BCRF provides critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis, and survivorship. The BCRF is the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. with an A+ from Charity Watch and 4 out of 4 stars from Charity Navigator. 91% of all money goes to breast cancer research and awareness programs.
As part of the Project Zero initiative, Fleet Feet Sports will be the exclusive retailer of a men's and women's limited edition of the BCRF Wave Rider 21, Mizuno’s cornerstone running shoe. Fleet Feet Sports will also sell a limited edition Mizuno performance t-shirt bearing a custom pink shoelace insignia.
For each t-shirt and pair of shoes sold, the BCRF will receive a donation of $5 and $10, respectively. Launching nationally September 29. Available only at Fleet Feet Sports!
