|Wacoal's Partnership with Susan G. Komen®
After making a promise to her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer, Nancy Brinker established the Susan G. Komen® foundation to support research and community outreach programs. Over the past 30 years, the organization has invested more than $920 million worldwide in research programs, more than $2 billion in community outreach programs and provides funding to help low-income women get screened and treated.
Wacoal's partnership with Komen began in 1999 with the launch of the Awareness Bra. This bra comes with a special hang tag and embroidered pink ribbon on the bra that together remind women about the importance of taking steps to support overall breast health. This outstanding bra is also Wacoal's #1 best seller.
Today, our partnership with Komen includes our Fit for the Cure® program and various other initiatives throughout the year that raise funds for Komen.
Wacoal has guaranteed an aggregate minimum donation of $250,000 to Komen in 2016. Fit for the Cure® is a registered trademark of Susan G. Komen®. For more information about Komen or breast health, please visit www.komen.org
