Skellerup, home of the iconic Red Band, have just launched Pink Bands in support of Breast Cancer Foundation NZ (BCFNZ).
Five dollars from every pair of boots will go directly to the Foundation.
Why we’re supporting Breast Cancer Foundation NZ
Nine New Zealanders are diagnosed with breast cancer every day, a third of which live outside the main centres. Working in partnership with Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand, Skellerup has created Pink Band gumboots to raise money and show our support for those affected by the disease, particularly in rural communities.
For rural communities, a cancer diagnosis often brings with it added complexities. The realities of farm life mean it’s not always possible to take weeks (or months) off to receive treatment, resulting in many women choosing mastectomies over breast-conserving surgery. Limited resources in the rural health sector can also mean they have less access to breast reconstruction treatments.
About Skellerup Pink Band gumboots
The strictly-limited, special edition Skellerup Pink Band are designed and hand-crafted in exactly the same way as the traditional Red Band, these limited-edition gumboots feature pink detailing and a pink ribbon printed on the calf.
