Under Armour, the Baltimore-based performance and innovation brand, has made a gift of $10 million to the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center to fund breast cancer and breast health support programs and a women's wellness center.
The gift is the largest yet made by the company to any organization and is in keeping with its focus on physical fitness and healthy lifestyles. The money will be used to construct and outfit the space to house these breast cancer–related programs in the Kimmel Cancer Center's planned Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building.
The Under Armour LiveWell Center will include exercise equipment, a nutrition and learning center, breast cancer navigation, and survivorship services that will help guide women going through treatment and beyond. The programs will be offered worldwide through distance learning, the Internet, and social media and will include up-to-date information about breast cancer research and treatment, as well as fitness and breast cancer prevention.
