Peter Nygård & NYGÅRD International have been supporting the fight against breast cancer for well over a decade now & it is absolutely our corporate 'Charity of Choice'.

4 years ago, in addition to the white Participant Run T-shirts, NYGÅRD wanted to do something special for BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS: A pink SURVIVOR T-shirt.


The 'sea of pink' seen on Run Day stirred mixed emotions … We felt a tinge of sadness because of what this colour has come to represent ... lives lost & lives changed because of breast cancer. BUT we also felt Joy & Antipicipation because every speck of pink at every Run site across the country represented a Victory & HOPE for the future.

Technology, science, medical breakthroughs & each survivor gives us hope that a cure will be found to put an END to breast cancer. The VISUAL message expressed through the # of survivors who wore these pink T-shirts on Run Day emphasizes & highlights the importance of raising funds to support research, so that in years to come, our children & grand-children will not have to wear a pink T-shirt because a much needed cure will have been found. Until that day comes ... & it WILL ... we at NYGÅRD pledge our CONTINUING support!
