Sock it to Cancer

Does anyone darn socks anymore? Probably not, but if you fancy designing a darn fancy pair of socks for a good cause, the Breast Cancer Society of Canada (BCSC) and Collins Clothiers, Canada’s largest independent formal wear company, are inviting Canadians to help them take big steps in breast cancer research by submitting their sartorial designs.

Anyone can enter, no sock skills required, participants can visit to print a sock template and create their design using their favourite colouring tool or by uploading the PDF to a design program of their choice. Two winning designs will be chosen and brought to life by Collins Clothiers and sold across Canada with half the proceeds going to the BCSC.

"Breast cancer research is near and dear to my heart and our company’s core value is to always support and give back to the communities we’re part of, so partnering with BCSC just makes sense for Collins Clothiers,” said Curt Collins, President of Collins Clothiers. “Their creativity in engaging Canadians with our product combined with their fundraising efforts around Million Steps to Mother's Day is the perfect fit.”

The deadline for sock submissions is March 6, 2022. Up to 20 finalists will be selected and then voting will open March 10-20, 2022 for people to vote for their favourite design. In addition to having their socks sold across Canada, the final two winners will get a prize pack and a $1,500 donation made in their honour to their local cancer treatment centre.

"The World Health Organization reported last year that breast cancer is the #1 diagnosed cancer worldwide,” said Kimberly Carson, CEO of the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. “Our partnership with Collins Clothiers will help us engage Canadians in making a difference to support life-saving breast cancer research. Research saves lives, and we are thrilled to have their support to fulfill our mission.”
