Aspaeris Pivot Shorts (APS™), the only technical compression short designed exclusively for female athletes that improves performance, speeds recovery and prevents injury, made their retail debut at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Pineapple Classic 5K with Obstacles in Greenwich, CT on Saturday, May 19, 2012. The Aspaeris booth sported a purple half mannequin displaying a pair of red APS™ and provided free home-baked cookies. Marketing Director, Kari Ricigliano greeted runners of all ages as they stopped by. Many were soaking wet from the final slip and slide obstacle, but grinning and clutching their hard-earned pineapples.

“It was great seeing people have fun while running, and racing for a good cause,” says Ricigliano. “The Pineapple Classic 5k was a perfect race for Aspaeris to leap off the internet and help female athletes have fun, stay safe, and be less sore the next day! The best part will be when Aspaeris cuts the check for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.”

Aspaeris will donate $5 from each sale to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. All female contestants were given a 50% off coupon for a pair of Aspaeris Pivot Shorts(APS™). All coaches and runners with the Connecticut Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Team In Training program have also been given a 50% discount on their first pair of APS. Aspaeris will continue to provide support to home-based runners with a presence at four Hartford Marathon Foundation Races and with continued discounts for Connecticut-based teams.
