Ahnu Footwear Sponsors Team LUNA® Chix Local Teams

A national women’s network of fitness and fundraising gets footwear partner

RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA- Ahnu Footwear proudly announces its new sponsorship of Team LUNA Chix local teams, a national program founded by LUNA®, The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women®, that brings women together through sports to foster life-long health.

Team LUNA Chix currently includes 29 amateur local teams across the country, with 280 women members in 24 cities around the country. Ranging in age from 20 to 50, Team LUNA Chix local teams host community events, connecting women interested in learning new sports, staying active and fundraising for The Breast Cancer Fund. The group united more than 300,000 women last year through weekly runs, bicycle rides, clinics and events. The program has raised $330,000 to date for The Breast Cancer Fund.

“Ahnu Footwear's commitment to an aware, active lifestyle is something that the LUNA Chix clearly embrace. These women are leaders in their communities, pursue healthy and active lives, and are acutely aware of the challenges facing our planet and our future,” said Jacqueline Lenox, a founder and Brand Director of Ahnu Footwear. “With their fundraising efforts going to the Breast Cancer Fund, an organization we already partner with, it seemed like a natural extension to sponsor Team LUNA Chix local teams.”

As part of the sponsorship, Ahnu Footwear will supply Team LUNA Chix local team members with performance and lifestyle footwear for their active endeavors. Additionally, each regional team will receive Ahnu shoes for giveaways to boost fundraising efforts directly benefiting the Breast Cancer Fund.

“LUNA and Ahnu Footwear share the same values in social and environmental responsibility,” said Brooke Golden, Sr. Manager of Women's Experience, LUNA. “We are excited to have Ahnu Footwear as a partner to help us connect women in their communities, inspire healthy lifestyles by being active outside and raise awareness for The Breast Cancer Fund in their communities.”

Team LUNA Chix fundraises for The Breast Cancer Fund, the leading national organization focused on eliminating the environmental risks associated with breast cancer. Less than one in ten women with breast cancer has a genetic history of the disease, and a growing body of scientific evidence points to the exposure of toxic chemicals and radiation factors contributing to the high rates of breast cancer.

Through public education, policy initiatives, outdoor challenges and other innovative campaigns, The Breast Cancer Fund lobbies and educates on the changes needed to stop this disease before it starts.
