Breast Cancer Fund
Ocean Kayak is proud to promote women's healthy,
active lifestyles. We donate one percent of gross sales from our women's
specific kayaks to the Breast Cancer Fund, the leading national organization working to identify and eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer.
The numbers tell a sobering tale. Although detection and treatment methods have improved, our odds have not: Today 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. There is great public awareness of breast cancer—with pink ribbons covering everything from makeup bottles to soup cans—until now, the emphasis has been on screening, treatment and searches for a cure. The Breast Cancer Fund is working to shift public focus to prevention—to changing the odds so that far fewer people will ever have to hear the words “you have breast cancer.” As part of our commitment to the fight against breast cancer Ocean Kayak began donating one percent of the gross sales from our women’s specific kayaks to the Breast Cancer Fund in 2002.
Designed for women by women, Ocean Kayak Venus kayaks have proven to be popular boats thanks to their outstanding stability, superb performance and of course their commitment to supporting women throughout the globe. Our women's specific kayaks include:
the Venus 10 and Venus 11.
The Breast Cancer Fund works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease. Founded in 1992, the Breast Cancer Fund works from the knowledge that breast cancer is not simply a personal tragedy, but a public health priority that demands action from all.
