The Zappos Kentucky Family rocked it out in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk this past Sunday, October 23rd in Louisville, Kentucky. Our Heroes for Hope and a Cure team had an amazing time strolling next to the mighty Ohio River, and we raised a total of $3317.48!
We ranked #8 among all companies in Louisville and had the MOST participation of any registered company with 65 superhero participants! Heather B. was our top fundraiser this year, having brought in $220 for the fight against Breast Cancer.
The Zappos Family and many of our brands have dug in the trenches to wage an all-out war against breast cancer. With an estimated 250,000 cases of breast cancer expected to be diagnosed this year, you can join in the fight by purchasing select items from our participating brands.

Eventhough October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s important to support Breast Cancer Awareness organizations like Susan G. Komen year-round. Our friends at Tumi have launched a line of Breast Cancer Awareness products that support Susan G. Komen for the Cure by donating 20% of the proceeds to support breast cancer research. The Tumi Vapor is a totally new and advanced travel experience. It offers ultra-modern style that defies definition, the protection of a hardside case, and a surprisingly lightweight, easy-to-maneuver design. Don’t stop supporting the research to end breast cancer just because October has passed. It will take all of us pushing year-round to make it happen and it’s touching that companies like Tumi are stepping up to the plate.
