Old Town, Maine -- Ocean Kayak® and Necky® Kayaks, respected leaders in the paddlesports community, would like to remind consumers that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As part of their commitment to the fight against breast cancer both brands donate one percent of gross sales from their women’s specific kayaks to the Breast Cancer Fund for research and prevention of this deadly disease.

Ocean Kayak’s donation is derived from sales of Venus 10™ and Venus 11™ kayaks, while Necky Kayaks donates in-kind proceeds from its Eliza™ series kayaks. Since the program’s inception in 2002, Ocean Kayak and Necky Kayaks have donated nearly $80,000 in cash and product to the Breast Cancer Fund and look forward to continuing the program in 2010.

“We are proud to promote a healthy active lifestyle for women and in doing so we feel it’s necessary to help fight against a disease that too often takes women in the prime of their lives,” said Sara Knies, Senior Brand Manager for Johnson Outdoors Paddlesports. “The Breast Cancer Fund is a fantastic organization, and we believe the funds contributed through the sale of the Ocean Kayak® and Necky Kayaks can help the ongoing effort of identifying the causes of breast cancer and preventing the disease.”

Designed for women by women, Venus and Eliza kayaks have proven to be popular boats thanks to their outstanding stability, superb performance and of course their commitment to supporting women throughout the globe.
