Fanny Packs For The Win

Fanny packs hold a near and dear place in my heart. My father, John, has been wearing a fanny pack almost my entire life. No – I am not kidding. Yes – he is the only one outside of Disney World vacationers who requires a fanny pack for everyday activities. However, it has become a staple in his wardrobe, and I admire his personal determination to blend style with utility. You rock, Dad.

You know before I even wrote this that you already wanted to buy a Marathon Monday fanny pack. Of course you do because EVERYONE is already getting one. My dad alone should be convincing enough. (I am pretty sure this was on the cover of Vogue last fall.) If you need another reason, look no further than the BC  motto– men and women for others.

Others for Women, an initiative to simultaneously support BC student-run businesses in addition to women’s charities, will receive 5% of the profits from each Marathon Monday fanny pack sold. It is perfect for holding your phone, ID, and whatever else you need for MM, so your hands are free to cheer and high-five EVERY runner that passes by! Click here to place your order:

Others for Women will give the funds directly to the Somaly Mam Foundation, which is dedicated to eliminating human trafficking in the world for women and children. This organization has partnered with Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn‘s Half the Sky movement.

Women around the world need the support of others, especially BC students, to empower them. Please support Marathon Monday runners, a BC business, and most importantly, the Somaly Mam Foundation.  Please spread the word to increase the number of fanny packs sold which will increase the number of women we can help! Thank you for your support of this important cause.
