£10,000 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity so far!
OOFOS UK is pleased to announce that we have been able to donate £10,057.50 (on 14/12/21) to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity as part of our Project Pink initiative this year! We are grateful to every OOFOS customer who has made this possible by purchasing OOFOS recovery footwear, thank yOO for helping us to make a difference.
This is an exciting milestone for our ongoing support of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. In April 2021, we launched the first Project Pink initiative for the OOFOS brand outside of the US, to partner with The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and support the incredible work that they do in fighting cancer. Since then, 2% of net sales on oofos.co.uk has been donated to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
When we began our partnership, our goal was to donate at least £10,000 during the first year. To reach this milestone with 4 months to go means that we will exceed this target as we continue to give back. Kelly Cundell, Head of International at OOFOS, had the following to say: “We are proud to be a brand that gives back and thrilled to have reached the donation milestone of £10,000.00, which seems so fitting during this season of giving. Project Pink is a big part of our OOsoul and being able to support The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in the UK has been an honour. We have received so much positive support for our partnership and we are motivated to keep giving back in support of this amazing UK charity.”
The Cause Chose Us
At OOFOS we often say “The Cause Chose Us”. Duncan Finigan helped establish Project Pink, to fight and help find a cure for breast cancer, during her own courageous battle with stage 4 breast cancer. Sadly, we lost our beloved friend on May 26, 2019 after a four-year battle with the disease.
As one of the company’s first employees, she was part of its soul. Her passion and dedication to making OOFOS make you feel better beyond our technology and the comfort our shoes provide, has always inspired us to be involved in a way to give back to the cancer cause. Project Pink continues to give back, to change lives today and is a significant part of our #OOsoul, this is part of Duncan’s legacy. To date OOFOS has donated over US$ 1.7 million to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund in the US.
Support the Cause
Feel Good because you have done good: OOFOS is all about making yOO feel better. When OOFOS customers invest in their recovery, they will feel better after exercise and feel relief from injury.
