October – or ‘Pinktober’, as it’s also known – is breast cancer awareness month, helping to prevent, research and treat breast cancer for nearly 40 years. This year, adidas is also taking part by donating €15/£15 to Breast Cancer Now (breastcancernow.org/) or $15 to NBCF (nationalbreastcancer.org/) for every item sold at full price throughout Members Week and the month of October from their new, limited edition Breast Cancer Awareness collection.
The colour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is pink, as is the colour of the new adidas collection: adidas.com/breast_cancer_awareness. We've put together some adventures for you that celebrate this colour with pink highlights around the globe. See for yourself how pink the world is!
Do you know a pink highlight that you’d like to share with us – whether in your neighbourhood or on the other side of the world? Send us a link to it in the comments of this Collection for the chance to win one of two €200 vouchers for the adidas.com online shop.
Under the motto ‘Strength In Nature’, we want to encourage you to re-coup energy outside with our campaign. ‘The Outdoors Is For Us All.’ They give us energy and help us to stay balanced. Being outdoors is good for us in every way and can make any day special.
The adidas Breast Cancer Awareness collection is a limited product range consisting of the adidas Five Ten Freerider Pro Canvas, the adidas TERREX AGRAVIC ULTRA, adidas TERREX Free Hiker 2 and the adidas Ultraboost, complemented by an exclusive clothing collection in matching colors.
The collection combines pink color details with graphic illustrations by athlete Veronique Sandler. With her illustrations, she wants to present the topic of breast cancer in a more positive and diverse way, instead of looking at the disease from a purely clinical perspective, as is usually the case.

Incidentally, adidas donates 15 euros to the organizations Breast Cancer Now or NBCF for each product sold in the collection.

Sea Pink is a sculpture by Swiss artist Marc Moser (born 1968) and was originally part of the popular Sculpture By The Sea exhibition in Aarhus. The sculpture was then donated to Aarhus and is now located in the new district of Aarhus. The large sunglasses Sea Pink became particularly popular because of the way people interact with the sculpture. Through the big sunglasses you can see a colorful pink world.

Icon of Pop Architecture – Under the auspices of Emperor Wilhelm II, a structure containing a flow channel was built on Berlin’s Schleuseninsel (“lock island”) in 1903. It was used to test the design of warships. In 1974 the site was given a spectacular addition by architect Ludwig Leo: a large pink pipe running through the blue lab building. Water is circulated through a large tank. Ships up to nine meters long can be placed inside it using an elevator, to test how they react to the current under realistic conditions. The laboratory is now used by the Technical University of Berlin to study numerical fluid dynamics.
Elafonisi is a small island off the west coast of Crete. A sandy promontory to the island forms a shallow water lagoon that is in no way inferior to many South Sea beaches. The pink to pink-colored sand created by mussel shells merges seamlessly into the turquoise-blue sea and creates a truly paradisiacal ambience. In the area in front of the beach there are parking lots, snack bars, showers and umbrellas.

Probably the most eye-catching building in the "Pink City" Jaipur. The name Hawa Mahal means "Palace of the Winds", as the sophisticated construction always blows a fresh breeze through the building. This palace was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawaj Pratap Singh for his numerous wives, who could follow the magnificent processions on the street without being seen themselves.

A highlight at Telok Blangah Hill Park is the Terrace Garden, a popular spot for honeymooners. It consists of a series of semi-circular terraces located at the top of the park. The park is particularly beautiful when the numerous bougainvillea plants are in bloom.

Antelope Canyon is one of the most famous attractions in the Southwest. The red sandstone shows stunning formations, but the canyon is most popular for its beams that appear in summer time and when the sun reaches its highest point.
The slot canyon is located in Navajo Reservation and the natives are the only one offering tours into three different areas of the same canyon: Upper, Lower and X. Upper Antelope Canyon is the most accessible and you don't have to climb any ladders like in the narrow Lower Canyon. X Canyon is the shortest canyon, divided into two sections.
Booking a tour is the only chance for you to get into the area. Tours start from 65 Dollar. You can either book a hiking tour, where you will walk through the canyon with quite a lot of people. Backpacks, tripods and selfiesticks are prohibited on these tours. You can also book a photographer tour which is a lot more expensive, but you will be in the interesting locations at the right time, when the beams appear.

This visitor center is entirely dedicated to the colorful phenomenon of the Northern Lights. An interactive exhibition and a cinema room with a high-resolution 7-meter screen bring you closer to this spectacle on site. If you prefer to see the Aurora Borealis live, the center organizes stays and organized tours.
