In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we’re showcasing some fabulous fitness gear that you can feel good about wearing. This month is all about sweating it out in style, and for a great cause. From shoes to sports bras, it’s easy to think pink and show your support with our picks for the best breast cancer awareness sports apparel.
Work out in comfort and style while wearing this ultra-lightweight Under Armour T-shirt ($25) featuring a moisture-wicking interior that helps regulate your core temperature and keep you dry as you burn calories. Anti-odor technology also prevents the growth of odor-causing microbes. A portion of proceeds from each T-shirt purchased goes toward various breast cancer charities. We particularly love the message on the front, which reads, "Go. Fight. Cure."
Support your breasts – and a great cause – on your next jog or trip to the gym. For every sports bra purchased this month (prices vary), Moving Comfort will donate $1 to the Feel Your Boobies Foundation, a non-profit organization that encourages women to take responsibility for their health and perform regular breast self-exams.
Practice your downward dog, tree pose and warrior on this pretty pink Jade yoga mat ($70). The eye-catching mat is not only made from eco-friendly, non-slip rubber, but $5 from every mat sold goes to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a breast cancer education and support organization.
Make your fellow gym-goers pink with envy when you stroll into your step class sporting this chic yet functional Beyond Yoga teardrop back cami ($71) with supportive fit, generous length and sturdy criss cross back straps. Twenty-five percent of all proceeds from this flattering fitness top go to support Breast Cancer Awareness.
Whether you're running errands, running after your kids or running on the track, stay hydrated on the go and show your support with this pink Avon sports bottle with pop-up drink spout ($5). One hundred percent of the net profits will be donated to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.
Fitness walking shoes
One of the easiest, most effective ways to burn calories and move your body is by walking. Pound the pavement in a pair of these lightweight, flexible fitness walking shoes from the New Balance Lace Up for the Cure collection ($90). New Balance will contribute 5 percent of the suggested retail price of sales from the collection with a guaranteed minimum donation of $500,000 each year to Susan G. Komen for the Cure through 2012.
Don't fear the cold this winter. Stay warm as you work out in this mid-weight, relaxed-fit North Face fleece jacket in black and pink ($80). Perfect for cooler-weather walks or even just going to and from the gym this fall, your purchase helps support North Face's annual donation to Boarding with Breast Cancer.
