Buy Brooks For Her by Dec. 31; purchases benefit Center

Gift the athletic woman in your life with fitness apparel; proceeds will support breast cancer patients

Dec. 20, 2010

You have until Dec. 31 to purchase a gift for an athletic woman in your life and benefit breast cancer patients at the same time. Women’s apparel retailer Brooks created the Brooks For Her (BFH) collection to support those affected by breast cancer.

For each BFH purchase through the end of this month, Brooks will donate 6.25 percent of the suggested retail price to three organizations at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer:

  • Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
  • The Young Survival Coalition
  • Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation.

You get to vote for the charity you'd like to receive the donation. When the program concludes, the proceeds will be distributed to the three organizations in an amount relative to the percentage of votes each receives.

Vote at the Brooks site to show your support for the Hutchinson Center. There is no purchase necessary to vote, and the more times you vote for the Center, the more funds the Center will receive at the end of the promotion.

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is a world leader in research to prevent, detect and treat cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
