CHICAGO, Oct 21, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Golf shoe company SQAIRZ has partnered with the American Cancer Society as part of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign to raise awareness and save lives from breast cancer. SQAIRZ has launched two limited edition pink golf shoes for men and women adorned with the breast cancer awareness ribbon.
SQAIRZ will donate until the end of 2021 $ 30 for each pair sold directly to the ACS. These new limited edition SQAIRZ golf shoes will be available exclusively at https://sqairz.com/.
“We are grateful to SQAIRZ Shoes and to all of our Real Men Wear Pink attendees for voicing our cause,” said Wayne White, Executive vice president of the North Central Region of the American Cancer Society. “Not only do they wear pink, they raise breast cancer awareness and commit to fundraising to save more lives. These donations help us save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.”
“This is a deeply personal issue for me,” said Robert Winskowicz, CEO and founder of SQAIRZ. “I lost my brother to cancer and would do anything to prevent this from happening to another family. Whether breast cancer or otherwise, this disease has affected so many and the many other families I have met who are going through the same thing, what a devastating effect this disease is having on families. We support the ACS because so many millions have been positively influenced by their great work and the golf community can contribute so much to spread education and awareness and to contribute to a good cause. “
