Balega continues to support Breast Cancer Prevention Partners with Grit and Grace

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to support our long-time partner organization, Breast Cancer Prevention Partners, Balega’s new Grit and Grace Women’s Enduro running socks are once again available for a limited time. Featuring all new inspirational phrases, one dollar from every pair of Grit and Grace socks sold will benefit BCPP, a science-based advocacy organization that works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation.

This year’s collection of Grit and Grace socks includes three inspirational phrases that embody the Balega spirit of Ubuntu, which is the Zulu word for “shared humanity” or “I am because we are.”  This year, the phrases: Embrace Kindness, Defy Gravity, and Brave Badass are embroidered on six unique and brightly colored socks.



The three inspirational phrases in this year’s collection represent the life of Balega Ambassador and lifelong runner,  Kim Stemple. We at Balega were devastated by her passing last year, but she continues to inspire our Grit and Grace collection by having lived her life to the fullest and being a pure symbol of Ubuntu in sharing her love and goodwill. We dedicate our collection to Kim and her relentless efforts to make our world a better place for everyone.



In a world where socks can make a difference, we invite you to support our Grit and Grace initiative, and in turn support BCPP’s mission at the intersection of breast cancer prevention and environmental health. For over 25 years, BCPP has been the leading science-based policy and advocacy organization working to prevent breast cancer by eliminating exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation.
