Fleet Feet and Mizuno Partner for Project Zero

For the second year in a row, Mizuno and Fleet Feet have team up to for Project Zero. The partnership is a collaborative effort driving awareness and funds in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Project Zero has one simple and yet, incredibly difficult goal - turn 1 in 8 women affected by breast cancer into 0 in 8 women affected by breast cancer.

The hard reality is that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. We want to make it 0 in 8. When you visit any Fleet Feet location and purchase the special edition Mizuno BCRF WAVEKNIT® R2 running shoes, $10 will be donated directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation - the largest non-profit fundraiser for breast cancer research. With just one pair of shoes, you’ll be helping to fund the research of more than 275 scientists across 15 countries and 6 continents.

If you know anyone who’s been diagnosed, if you’re a survivor, or know someone who is, or even if you just need a great pair of running shoes, be a part of Project Zero. And help us turn 1 in 8 to 0 in 8. #projectzero

FAST FACTS:

  • 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • $10 from every pair of special edition BCRF WAVEKNIT® R2 running shoes will be donated to BCRF. The money raised will go toward funding BCRF research on issues, such as how diet and exercise influence breast cancer risk and outcomes.
  • $50 funds 1 hour of research, so each shoe funds 10.2 minutes of research. There could be a break through at any moment.
  • BCRF funded research has shown that weight loss at any age significantly lowers breast cancer risk factors such as those controlling the blood vessels that support tumor growth.
  • BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. with an A+ rating from Charity Watch and four out of four stars from Charity Navigator. Donations can be made directly to BCRF online at www.bcrf.org.
