STRENGTH IN NATURE
Through the Breast Cancer Awareness collection, adidas has partnered with Breast Cancer Now and National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF) to help raise awareness of breast cancer and empower communities around the world through our ‘Strength In Nature’ campaign. The limited-edition product range includes an exclusive print designed by adidas athlete, Veronique Sandler who took inspiration from her own conversations with the breast cancer community. Her illustrations are designed to depict breast cancer with positivity and diversity, as opposed to being clinical representations of the disease.
“A few significant people in my life have suffered from breast cancer. It’s something many of us will be affected by in some way in our life time, and it’s so important to spread awareness. I’m so stoked to have had the opportunity to be involved with designing this collection. Speaking to people with the disease, and those who have fought it, many of them described to me how spending time in nature or thoughts of nature helped them stay positive through difficult moments. I hope my illustrations help represent their strength and positivity.”
