Barb Thomas, a breast cancer survivor, originally designed the Pink Ribbon Jersey for herself. She and her husband Dave, members of the Gainesville (FL) Cycling Club, actively help raise breast cancer awareness and support research dedicated to finding a cure. When Barb discovered that there wasn’t already a pink ribbon cycling jersey, she decided to take matters into her own hands.
The jersey is design-copyrighted and has been sold all over the world, raising more than $6,000 to fund breast cancer research. All proceeds from sales of the jersey support ongoing research on treatment-resistant breast cancers (such as the aggressive "Triple Negative" subtype) at the University of Florida Health Cancer Center. These cancers account for a disproportionate number of breast cancer related deaths. Visit the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation or CSCRB for more information on treatment-resistant breast cancers.
The Pink Ribbon Jersey is a high quality Louis Garneau performance garment. Suitable for cycling, running, horseback riding or walking, the jersey is SPF50 and UVP rated for outdoor actvities. Available in short sleeved or sleeveless zippered versions, the Pink Ribbon Jersey is the perfect way to "Get Your PINK On"! Matching Pink Ribbon cycling gloves are also available.
