Breast cancer awareness month takes place in October. However, there are events, walks, and marathons throughout the year.
During these events, many people wear t-shirts and bracelets to show support for the cause.
One such awareness item is breast cancer wristbands.
Pink Ribbon Wrist Sweatbands & Silicone Wristbands
There are commonly two types of pink wristbands that you see people wear: silicone and cotton. These are both great options!
Many people prefer the cotton wristbands for breast cancer walks / events that take place outside during the spring and summer months. They can be bought in pairs and even as a set with a headband.
Silicone wristbands, on the other hand, are ultra lightweight and easy to hand out. You can store them easier since they are small in size as well.
Pink Ribbon Wristbands for Football Games
During October you will see many football players in the NFL, college and high school wearing pink socks, gloves, and mouth guards.
Another item that is perhaps the least expensive is the pink ribbon wristband. It is a great way to show support for breast cancer awareness while on the field.
You can wear one on each wrist or upper arm. Because the cotton bands are 3 inches wide, they are very visible in the stands and on recorded video.
If wrist sweatbands that have a pink ribbon on them are over your budget, you can also consider plain pink or neon pink wristbands.
Buying Breast Cancer Awareness Wristbands in Bulk
Are you buying for a team or large event? Consider buying in bulk. Many stores online offer discounts when you buy over 25 wristbands at once. That is much better than going to your local sporting goods store and buying them with no bulk discount.
