On Friday, October 8, many people in America will be joining together for a very special “casual Friday” to help Lee National Denim Day celebrate 15 years of fighting breast cancer.
These individuals and organizations are gearing up to participate in this grassroots program which has raised more than $80 million for breast cancer research by simply asking the nation to put on their jeans for a $5 donation to the Women’s Cancer Programs of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF).
This year, Lee National Denim Day is partnering with the Cancer Support Community, an international non-profit dedicated to providing support, education and hope to people affected by cancer.
Funds raised from participation in Denim Day® will support:
- Groundbreaking research at Lee Translational Laboratories nationwide to find less toxic, more effective treatments.
- Development of an early detection blood test in collaboration with the Breast Cancer Biomarker Discovery Project.
- Cancer Support Community centers nationwide which provide emotional and social support to cancer patients and their families.
