October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and for the second year running Yumiko has chosen to support the international pink ribbon campaign by offering a special edition color combination leotard.Â
For one month only Yumiko will bring back the vibrant pink fabric color N-Awareness. Any order or purchase of N-Awareness combined with N-Rose trim will come with an official porcelain Breast Cancer Awareness pin. Proceeds from the pink ribbon pin go directly to supporting breast cancer research and early detection education.
Yumiko developed the Breast Cancer Awareness special edition color combination leotard after YumiGirl, Lily Bones, of the Slovak National Ballet was diagnosed with the disease. Lily’s personal story inspired Yumiko to help raise awareness among dancers. Breast cancer can affect women of all ages and knowing the variety of risk factors, especially those related to diet, weight loss and metabolism are especially important for dancers.
Starting today and running throughout the month of October Yumiko Boutiques will have a select number of Awareness leotards in stock. Please contact your local boutique to find out which of your favorite Yumiko styles are available and help spread awareness for Breast Cancer.
