The Avon Foundation raises funds and awareness for breast cancer research through their annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Reebok sponsors and supports the Avon Walk with their Pink Ribbon footwear and apparel. You know what that means? By fulfilling your love for shoes in Reebok’s Pink Ribbon line, you basically double your support for breast cancer awareness. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown on how:
1. Purchase your next trainers from Reebok’s Pink Ribbon line.
2. Reebok donates a portion of the sales to the Avon Foundation for Women.
3. Avon uses that money for the Avon Walk to raise even more funds for breast cancer research.
4. Win-win for all!
And if you participate in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, you essentially triple your support. You’ll be indulging your shoe addiction, donating to a good cause, and working on your fitness all in one go.

The Reebok Pink Ribbon line has different styles of trainers within an affordable $70–$115 range, which all come in pink, of course. The “ZigTech” provides lots of cushion, the curved “SubLite” aids the feet’s rocking movement, and the “Skyscape Chase” offers a versatile look for day-to-day wear.
Reebok’s Pink Ribbon line also includes clothing, yoga equipment, gym gear, and even men’s apparel, which you can shop at Reebok.
