Komen Cruisers sold for breast cancer funding
Colorado-based Campus Cruisers will donate at least US$25 and up to $100 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for each Komen Cruiser sold.
Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker founded the organisation 27 years ago in memory of her sister Susan G. Komen, and today it is the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to finding the cures for breast cancer.
“The Komen Cruiser is the perfect symbol for what our organisation does every day as we’re racing to the cures for breast cancer,” said Elizabeth Chandler, a corporate relations manager at Komen for the Cure. “We encourage people to lead healthy lifestyles and be physically active, and this bicycle is a great way to do just that while supporting the breast cancer movement.”
Each feature on the Komen Cruiser was designed to capture the Komen spirit— from the streaming ribbon graphics to the stylized K head badge and the customized pink ribbons on the fenders.
The Komen Cruiser is available in two models. The one-speed, steel bike retails for US$299; the three-speed, aluminium edition retails for US$499.
Komen Cruisers are available at select bicycle dealers and through www.campuscruisers.com.
