Los Angeles, CA, June 21, 2018 -- Dickies Girls and Jenna McDougall have partnered together to support breast cancer prevention for the 2018 Vans Warped Tour. McDougall from the band Tonight Alive will be meeting fans for the entire summer at the Dickies Girl x Keep A Breast tents. Each day, the first 50 fans to the Dickies Girl x Keep a Breast tent will score a wristband to come and meet with Jenna! Fans will be able to take pictures in the Dickies Girls Ultimate Photobooth and have the chance to be featured on the Dickies Girl Instagram story and score free t-shirts by tagging @dickiesgirlofficial and using the #mydickies.
Jenna McDougall has been the lead singer for the Australian rock band Tonight Alive since 2008.
“I have watched Jenna from Tonight Alive grow into a strong leader in the music scene and to see her partnering with Keep A Breast and Dickies this summer on our final cross country run reconfirms this even more,” says Kevin Lyman, founder of Vans Warped Tour. “I’m proud to have Keep A Breast as a long time partner of The Vans Warped Tour. Together we have educated thousands of young people.”
“The fans and bands of Warped Tour are part of a generation with the most access to information and potential to apply it we’ve ever seen in history. It only makes sense for illness awareness and prevention to be a part of our realities! I’m excited to learn from and support Keep a Breast this summer and encourage youth to find out why it’s important and how to take action for their health.” said Jenna McDougall, lead singer of Tonight Alive.
This year, Dickies Girl will be sponsoring the Keep a Breast Foundation on tour. “Dickies Girl is proud to sponsor Keep A Breast on the final cross country Vans Warped Tour. We design clothes for bold fearless young women, and Jenna from Tonight Alive embodies that independent spirit that we encourage. Together we will help spread the message for young women to take an active role in their healthcare and cancer prevention” says Paula Unger, Creative Director at Dickies Girl.
The Keep A Breast Foundation has been on Vans Warped Tour for the past 18 years and has made a great impact in the community. “Warped Tour is our largest outreach platform and our biggest opportunity to get life-saving education directly into the hands of young people all over the country,” said Shaney jo Darden, Founder and Global CCO of Keep A Breast. “We’ve grown so much with Warped Tour, Keep A Breast truly would not be what is without this relationship. It is so incredibly meaningful to us that we get to join them one last time alongside Dickies Girl.”
The tour will run from June 21 to August 5th at various locations across the United States. Check out the site here for the full tour list: https://vanswarpedtour.com/dates/
Keep A Breast has recently launched their globally inclusive Check Yourself! app to continually and uniquely support young people in taking charge of their own health. It was designed specifically with young people in mind as they are so often left of out the breast cancer conversation. The app allows individuals to establish their own routine and approach to the breast self-check. It teaches them the best ways to check their boobies! and schedules an automatic monthly reminder at the same time.
