Onix Pickleball Donates $10,000 to Support Breast Cancer Awareness

EVANSVILLE, Ind., September 30, 2022 (Newswire.com) - ONIX Pickleball is donating $10,000 to the Indiana Women in Need Foundation (IWIN) for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and launching a Paddle with a Purpose campaign to heighten awareness of this horrible disease. The goal is to get as many people as possible involved in raising awareness and funds to help local Indiana men and women who might need assistance as well as have people support the effort in finding life-saving research. Paddle with a Purpose campaign consists of a complete line of pink pickleball products including the top-selling Evoke Premier paddle that is used by many pickleball professionals, pink pickleball sport bags, a pink pickleball paddle cover, and a pink sweat wristband, all supporting this great cause.

"ONIX is excited to help make a difference in our local community and beyond by donating proceeds to the IWIN. One in eight women are affected by breast cancer, and being able to commit to giving back is very special, especially for the second year in a row," says Emily Patton, ONIX Brand Manager. "We want to continue showing our support to our community, family, and friends. Everyone who participates in buying the pink products will be donating to this important cause."

The IWIN Foundation continues to support individuals that are currently in treatment for breast cancer statewide; they do this by securing and paying for individual services that relieve emotional, physical, and financial burdens. The IWIN states, "On behalf of the many Hoosiers served with this generous donation, we share our deepest gratitude with the teams at Onix Pickleball and Escalade Sports. Hoosiers struggling to afford basic needs, like transportation, meals, and childcare, during breast cancer treatment, will be given this enormous donation. The IWIN Foundation was rooted in the belief that communities coming together can achieve great things. This is a terrific example of an industry leader supporting some of our most vulnerable in their time of need."

The IWIN Foundation's vision is to be an innovative nonprofit organization, that is built on passion, dedication, and integrity, and where communities feel called to support their mission. They strive to grow and be recognized as the "neighbor next door" to all Indiana individuals enduring breast cancer.

"This donation will make an enormous impact on dozens of Hoosiers struggling to afford basic needs, like transportation, meals, and childcare, during breast cancer treatment. ONIX is not only an industry leader but also a community leader," says Debbie Laswell, Program Director of the IWIN Foundation. "The IWIN Foundation is deeply grateful for the generous support of ONIX Pickleball."
