etnies Footwear has teamed up with Autism Speaks, the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization, to create a line of co-branded kid's footwear. Ten percent of proceeds of sales of the co-branded shoes, with a minimum of $10,000 per year, will be donated to Autism Speaks to help raise awareness and support Autism Speaks in their continued efforts to fund autism research, as well as develop resources and treatments.
etnies BMX pro and Arnette Family member, Brian Kachinsky, has rallied behind the cause. "Individual sports like BMX, can have a positive effect on children with autism," says Kachinsky. "When etnies made me aware of the Autism Speaks organization, I jumped at the chance to be a part of the effort," he adds. And, he is totally right.
BK is truly a wonderfuly ambassador for the sport!
