Peachtree City, GA (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
On Oct. 8, SIGVARIS will team up with two local Trek Bicycle stores for the Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Rides in McDonough and Peachtree City. Attendees will have an opportunity to purchase special edition pink and black SIGVARIS Athletic Recovery Compression Socks as a fun way to raise awareness about breast cancer.
The events feature 10 and 25 mile family-friendly group rides. Donations and fees from the event go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The goal of the Trek Women Breast Cancer Awareness Rides is not only to raise funds for breast cancer research, but also to unite local communities in the effort to raise awareness about the importance of breast health in a fun, supportive environment.

SIGVARIS partners with several organizations each year to help raise awareness about various diseases, as well as to help educate athletes about the benefits of increased blood flow through graduated compression.
Athletes use compression socks during and after performance events to improve their results. When a sportsperson slips on SIGVARIS Active Therapy socks, he or she is benefiting from the science behind “true graduated compression” – compression that is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes as it goes up the leg. “True graduated compression” helps fight the force of gravity and circulate blood back to the heart and lungs more efficiently. When blood is properly circulated, it provides much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been, or are being, deprived during a workout.
SIGVARIS created http://www.activetherapysock.com to provide consumers with information on all the socks in the Active Therapy line.
SIGVARIS has several athletic partnerships with established sports organizations including the Atlanta Falcons, the Indianapolis Colts, the New Jersey NETS, Road Runner’s Club of America (RRCA), USProTri, Southern Crescent Cycling Club, and Cross Country Canada (CCC-skiing). Several professional athletes also endorse SIGVARIS’ Active Therapy Socks.
