5% of the sales of the special edition kayak will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation


Emeryville, CA /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Oru Kayak, the original origami kayak brand, is proud to announce its Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, featuring the brand’s popular Inlet kayak in a special Breast Cancer Awareness Pink. Designed with pink accents and pink buckles, 5% of proceeds from sales of the collection will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), an international leader in breast cancer research and awareness development.

The Inlet Kayak is a 9’8”, 20lb. kayak that conveniently folds down to the size of a suitcase, and can be assembled, transported, and stored anywhere. In a special pink debut, the Inlet will feature a bulkhead and floorboard with black material and pink ink, as well as pink fairing straps and closure straps.

By launching the special collection for October – the national month designated to promote breast cancer awareness and fundraise for the cure – Oru Kayak offers paddling enthusiasts an opportunity to support the vital work of BCRF.

“The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is an integral resource to finding a cure for the world’s most prevalent cancer,” commented Oru Kayak President Ardy Sobhani. “With our campaign, we want to support the organization and their impact on advancing research and saving lives,” Sobhani continued.

Since 1993, BCRF has raised more than half a billion dollars for clinical and translational research on breast cancer at medical institutions in the United States and abroad. BCRF’s investments currently fund over 255 researchers in 14 countries – driving global impact on life-saving research. As a result of their investments, researchers can make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer – and do so in record time.
