LIVESTRONG silicone bracelet comes from:

LIVESTRONG represents a spirit, the spirit of fighting the fate, unyielding.

The spirit of going forward!!

This hand band was initiated by the Tour de France champion Armstrong, which means that people can live bravely and bravely, and defeat the pain that cancer brings to people around the world. And Armstrong and NIKE are issued to raise funds for the Global Cancer Fund.


In September 1996, Armstrong, who was only 25 years old, was diagnosed with testicular cancer and had spread to the lungs and brain, with only 50% chance of survival. However, he stubbornly defeated the disease, he returned after a year of treatment, and won the championship of the Tour de France in 1999, and then successfully defended every year. By July 25, 2004, he had become the first "six-crown king" in the history of the 100-year Tour de France, and he was thus regarded by many Americans as a self-improving spiritual idol.


In December 1996, Armstrong established a foundation named after him in his hometown to help all people with cancer find competent doctors, appropriate therapies and the courage and optimism to stand the test.


Prior to the Tour de France in May 2005, the Lance Armstrong Foundation teamed up with the sponsor Nike and designed the yellow wrist ring by Nike. They made a total of 5 million yellow wrist rings, each priced at one dollar. The wristband is made of rubber-like silicone, which is also printed with Armstrong's famous "Live Strong", which also means "the enthusiasm of "Energetic Strong").


By mid-July, the first batch of yellow wrist rings sold out, and the newly-built 6 million units had already sold more than half. All proceeds from the sale of these wristbands are donated to the Armstrong Foundation. During the Tour de France, thousands of spectators wore yellow wrist rings, which became the symbol of the Armstrong yellow jersey. The silicone bracelet was first popular in the United States. The world's first silicone bracelet is yellow "LIVESTRONG". All people wearing this bracelet have the common purpose of fighting cancer and making life stronger!


Since then, because the silicone bracelet is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and tasteless, and has good elasticity and easy to wear, it has gradually developed into a popular accessory, which is loved by young friends. Nowadays, various types of silicone bracelets have become popular all over the world.
