Livestrong Team Canada Jersey
The Livestrong Team Canada jersey reveal kicks off a “Fight With Us” movement with national partner Sport Chek to support the Canadian women’s team and the Livestrong Foundation, both of which are dedicated to uniting, inspiring and empowering people affected by cancer.
Canadians from coast-to-coast can show their support for the national women’s team and take up the fight by purchasing the limited edition jersey and other Livestrong apparel including the Element Half-Zip for men and women, the men’s Fly Short, the women’s Twisted Training Capri and the men’s Free Trainer 3.0.
“Cancer will strike one in two men and one in three women in our lifetime. It’s a staggering reality that demands attention — an issue Nike remains committed to through support of the Livestrong Foundation,” said Joe Monahan, Nike Livestrong general manager.
The full line of Livestrong apparel and the Women’s World Championship Livestrong jersey is currently available at Sport Chek and Sport Expert locations across Canada.
