Sweating on Sorority Row to Fight Breast Cancer

Sweat With Soul Collage.jpg

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, athleisure line, Sweat With Soul hosted an event on USC’s sorority row in an effort to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. 

A group of young women (and a few men!) gathered on the Alpha Delta Phi lawn Sunday afternoon for a boxing workout, dubbed the Woman Warrior Workout led by Box Union

Participants took pictures in front of a pink ballon Warrior Wall and sipped on Suja juice after the workout. 

“I knew the girls would show up for a good cause,” says USC Panhellenic Director of Wellness and Athletics Caroline Hilton. 

Co-founder of the brand and KTLA Meteorologist Liberte Chan says, “It was important to me to put on an event like this because my grandmother had breast cancer. She had a single mastectomy and lived over 20 years after that surgery. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been affected by cancer in some way. This is a disease that is unfortunately too common and if I can anything to help raise money and awareness, I’m all for it. I know there is a cure!”

Proceeds from the event were donated to Susan G Komen’s LA Chapter. 

An Attitude of Gratitude

During the month of October, various organizations and individuals helped Susan G. Komen LA County further its mission through fundraisers, community partnerships and health events!

We thank YOU for helping us to raise funds and increase the exposure of breast health resources and services for Los Angelenos throughout the county!
