Facts: Two pink Wilson wristbands bearing the iconic breast cancer awareness ribbon come in each pack as part of Wilson’s Hope collection to benefit breast cancer research. The collection also includes a matching pink headband, sold separately. Both items are made of cotton microfiber mesh designed to enhance sweat absorption and comfort. In addition to its annual $100,000 donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Wilson gives one percent of the sales from its Hope collection to help fight for a cure. BCRF (www.bcrfcure.org) says 91 cents of every dollar it spends goes “towards breast cancer research and awareness programs.”

Impressions: October is breast cancer awareness month, and athletes ranging from tennis players to football and baseball players to boxers are sporting pink products to promote the cause. Hit for Hope while keeping your hands and wrists dry from sweat in the process. Several Wilson pros—including Melanie Oudin, Feliciano Lopez, and Philipp Kohlschreiber—will be wearing pink Hope accessories during tournaments in October to bring recognition to the fight against breast cancer. The Hope wristbands and headband are functional, colorful, resilient, and machine washable. Ideal for members of tennis teams who want to show support for a worthy cause with a unified, pink purpose.
