September 24, 2014 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES - Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park, creator of the world's first all-walled trampoline playing court, is teaming up with E! News host and breast cancer survivor Giuliana Rancic to raise money for her foundation FAB-U-WISH in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Instead of using the regular orange SkySocks for jumpers to wear while having a blast on the trampolines, Sky Zone is getting the jump on breast cancer by offering limited edition pink SkySocks during the month of October. For every pair of pink SkySocks sold at Sky Zone parks across the United States and Canada, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to FAB-U-WISH foundation in partnership with The Pink Agenda.
All funds donated in support of the partnership will be split evenly between funding cancer research and granting life-changing wishes to breast cancer patients. Now families and young people alike can jump for joy while doing good as well! To thank its generous guests for supporting the cause, Sky Zone will also match each amazing SkySock donation to FAB-U-WISH.
"One of our core values at Sky Zone is to do good. We like to give back as much as we can to the community, and partnering with Giuliana on this project has given us the perfect opportunity to do so for Breast Cancer Awareness Month," said Jeff Platt, president and CEO of Sky Zone LLC. "We hope the pink SkySock initiative will encourage families to have Active Fun while simultaneously supporting this incredibly important cause."
"I am thrilled to team up with Sky Zone to raise money for FAB-U-WISH this October," said Giuliana Rancic, founder of FAB-U-WISH. "Raising money for breast cancer fighters and survivors is a cause near and dear to my heart and the money donated through Sky Zone will go to help many deserving women. I look forward to seeing thousands of jumpers in pink socks across the country and appreciate every one of them!"
