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.

1Graphic T-shirt

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."
