We are big Kikkan fans here at Finn Sisu. That she’s a fantastic skier is obvious. But she’s also a special friend, and someone who continues to do so much for the sport we love. So when we heard she was being treated for breast cancer, we wanted to help.
When we approached Kikkan with our fundraising idea, she told us she personally didn’t need money to pay for her treatment, but that B4BC was her charity of choice. So here it is: fifty percent of the sales price (not the profit, but the sales price) of any pair of pink Kikkan Yoko poles will go to Boarding for Breast Cancer, the original youth-focused breast cancer education + prevention foundation.
Kikkan’s Yoko poles are top quality and available at three price points: from the value-priced 5400 ($80) to the mid-range 7100 ($129) and carbon 9100s ($275.) If we sold every pair of pink poles in the shop, we could send a check for close to ten grand to B4BC. A big, but worthy goal.
