September 1, 2013 – LAKE FOREST, CA – Power Balance Technologies Inc., sellers of the original Power Balance® silicone wristband, today announces their year-long partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. ® (NBCF) with the new ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ Wristband.
This authentic Power Balance wristband is available in both the Original or Evolution styles. With each Breast Cancer Awareness band purchase on powerbalance.com, Power Balance will donate $10 back to the NBCF. The partnership kicks off September 1 in preparation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October – and lasts through August 2014.
The Limited Edition ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ Wristbands feature bright pink bands as a reminder to women to do monthly self-exams and schedule clinical check-ups. Monies raised from the purchase of these bands will help fund National Breast Cancer Foundation programs, including the National Mammography Program which provides mammograms for women who are uninsured or cannot afford exams.
Power Balance professional athletes Drew Brees, Matt Kemp, Rudy Gay, Keegan Bradley, Stacy Lewis and other athletes across all sports will wear the wristbands in October.
“We hope the brightness of the Breast Cancer Awareness bracelet will not only raise money for NBCF programs, but also serve as a reminder for women to be proactive with their health,” said Power Balance Technologies Inc. CEO Denny Barge.
Consumers can show their support by purchasing the Breast Cancer Awareness Wristband at powerbalance.com. Wristband retail price: $29.99.
