For breast cancer awareness month, Vans released a capsule collection, for which a minimum of $200,000 of its proceeds will go toward CoppaFeel!, a breast cancer awareness group. We hope Vans will start looking at You Can Thrive! as a source for funding as well.

They are partnering with Vans to not only highlight the collection, but also to host a panel headed by Luana DeAngelis that can further explain the cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cure for breast cancer. The panel will take place this Sunday, October 20th at Alumni Flushing. In addition to complimentary coffee and snacks, we’ll be gifting copies of UNDO-ORDINARY, a bi-annual health and wellness magazine.

No RSVP required. All are welcome.
