We are grateful for Boa Technology’s support, said Christina Koenig, Network of Strength Director of Communications and Media Relations. The partnership helps Breast Cancer Network of Strength provide immediate emotional relief to anyone affected by breast cancer through our core program, YourShoes, the country’s only 24/7 breast cancer support center staffed by peer counselors who are breast cancer survivors.
The generous donation from the pink reels sales helps us touch lives in the future and helps us fulfill our mission to ensure, through information, empowerment and peer support, that no one faces breast cancer alone, she added.
Teaming up with Network of Strength to release a limited addition pink Boa reel has been an idea in the making for some time, says Boa President Mark Soderberg. Adding a pink reel to your Boa cycling, golf, hiking or running shoe will show you have joined in the fight against breast cancer.
Reel Pink product will be available from September 3rd through November 15th, for a minimum $10 donation at www.Boatechnology.com. All donors will be invited to post a dedication to a loved one via the Reel Pink microsite to share on Facebook and Twitter.
Pink product will be limited to Low Power Boa reels, covering any footwear with S1, L3, or L4 configurations. Boa partner product includes, but is not limited to the following: cycling shoes from Specialized or Lake Cycling.
Boa will ship tools and instructions with each purchase and will provide video tutorials and product information on the website for making the incredibly easy Reel Pink transition.
