Breast Cancer Fund

Ocean Kayak is proud to promote women's healthy, active lifestyles. We donate one percent of gross sales from our women's specific kayaks to the Breast Cancer Fund, the leading national organization working to identify and eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer.

The numbers tell a sobering tale. According to the National Cancer Institute, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.1 It’s important to note that while October is annually a time of education, understanding and support, the battle against this deadly disease is waged twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty five days a year. As part of our commitment to the fight against breast cancer Ocean Kayak began donating one percent of the gross sales from our women’s specific kayaks to the Breast Cancer Fund in 2002.

Designed for women by women, Ocean Kayak Venus kayaks have proven to be popular boats thanks to their outstanding stability, superb performance and of course their commitment to supporting women throughout the globe. Our women's specific kayaks include: the Venus 10 and Venus 11.

About The Breast Cancer Fund

In response to the public health crisis of breast cancer, the Breast Cancer Fund identifies – and advocates for elimination of – the environmental and other preventable causes of the disease. Founded in 1992, the Breast Cancer Fund works from the knowledge that breast cancer is not simply a personal tragedy, but a public health priority that demands action from all.


1The National Cancer Institute's (NCI) Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program has published its SEER Cancer Statistics Review 1975-2003 (1). This estimate is based on breast cancer statistics for the years 2001 through 2003.
