West Marine is teaming up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to offer "sailfast" bracelets. The purchase of these wristbands will help with research to fight these blood-based diseases.
From the press release: West Marine, Inc., the country's favorite retailer of boating supplies and accessories, is helping sailors show their support for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in a fun,
unique way with the SailFast Wristband.
"For years West Marine and sailors around the country have been hoisting their sails to help people with blood cancers," said Peter Harris, president and chief executive officer, West Marine. "The SailFast Wristband is another way for sailors to increase awareness and raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's blood cancer research and patient education programs."
At West Marine stores, customers can pick up a SailFast Wristband, which is
