In year two, PUMA expands their Project Pink Breast Cancer Awareness initiative by adding a little star power to the fold. Joining star athletes and Project Pink spokeswomen like Amy Rodriguez, Leslie Osborne, Karina LeBlanc, Alex Scott, Tasha Kai, Marta and PUMA Women’s Soccer Ambassador Julie Foudy will be actress Nina Dobrev of Vampire Diaries and Degrassi fame. As a new Project Pink’s supporter, the Dobrev will appear in the program’s Public Service Announcement, act as a media spokesperson, make appearances in support of the initiative, and engage with fans throughout the season via her Twitter handle, @ninadobrev.
“I’m truly excited for the opportunity to work on this season’s Project Pink initiative,” said Dobrev. “I love that it truly empowers young women to get involved and make a difference. Plus, I’ve always been an athlete, so I jumped on the chance to stand alongside and in support of some of these amazing female soccer players.” Dobrev, a former gymnast, is a natural fit for the PUMA brand, which celebrates the active lifestyle and supports the health and well-being of women worldwide.
