CELEBRASIANS IS COMING UP!
We are less than two weeks away from our 9th Annual CelebrASIANS Survivor Fashion Benefit: From Resilience to Radiance! This will be a virtual event on Saturday, November 13th at 6PM (ET). We are excited to feature the athletic sportswear and shoes of ASICS to showcase the style, spirit, and health journeys of our survivor models, who have faced cancer and trauma with inspiring strength and resilience. 

​​As our signature community event, CelebrASIANS raises funds towards peer-led support initiatives, breast and cervical cancer education and outreach, and programs that foster intergenerational community and cultural connection among the women we serve.
