Kimurawear has been the official equipment partner of the Fight To End Cancer since 2013!
They are a true power house and have made their mark in the industry by providing products for over 3,000 boxing/martial arts clubs worldwide. The union of Fight To End Cancer and Kimurawear has been an extremely successful partnership, largely due to the fact that we both hold strong community values.
Kimurawear believes that being an athlete means to exhibit many positive qualities that impact all areas of your life. According to them, being an athlete means that you exhibit confidence, focus, strength and that you participate in a healthy, active lifestyle. Kimurawear wants to inspire you to choose positivity, strength and focus in all aspects of your life and they believe that we have to push ourselves to achieve personal goals.
Whether you’re 10, 20 or 85-years-old, being an athlete has no age limit! They want to hear why you’re an athlete and why you push yourself to be the best that you can be. Join the online conversation with Kimurawear by using the hashtag, #IamAnAthlete.
Each year, our entire Fight To End Cancer Fight Team proudly sports the newest lines of Kimurawear boxing equipment. In their words:
” Our involvement with Fight To End Cancer coincides with our core values of our #IamAnAthlete movement. Everyone is an athlete and has the ability to reach their potential through hard work, dedication and perseverance. The Fight to End Cancer can be viewed in a similar way – as a battle that requires those same attributes. Kimurawear is proud to stand beside these warriors as they face this difficult task, and offer our full support to the Fight To End Cancer.”

Words From Jeff Lopes, President & Founder of Kimurawear:
Kimurawear is a proudly Canadian-owned company that is honoured to be supporting Jennifer Huggins – Fight To End Cancer Founder – and the entire Fight To End Cancer team in the journey to put an end to a disease that affects over 500 Canadians every day. Our brand has developed and manufactured boxing equipment for the past 10 years, so when Jennifer approached us a few years back to ask for support of the Fight To End Cancer, it automatically felt like the perfect marriage for us to work with them.
Kimurawear works with a handful of charities that all have a special meaning for us. Cancer has touched many of our own family and friends. Putting an end to cancer is a topic we all strongly support. We encourage everyone to support and donate to this amazing event, as we all have one main goal… to put an end to cancer.
Jeff and the team at Kimurawear have put countless hours and hard work into the Fight To End Cancer. We couldn’t be more grateful to have them on the team as they are such an important part of our FTEC Family!
Together we can end cancer once and for all!
DEFEAT IS NOT AN OPTION!
