The Finishers” and “We are #JasperStrong” are the winners of this week’s Ink of the Week contest!

This past weekend, friends gathered to participate in the Griffith Park Relay Marathon in Los Angeles, California. Some were first-time runners and some were experienced runners, but all ran in dedication to those who have lost their battle against cancer and all finished the race strong in their Hanes Cool Dri Performance Shirts!

 

When this customer’s 10-year-old cousin, Jasper, was diagnosed with Leukemia this year, she knew she wanted custom #JasperStrong t-shirts to not only support him, but to spread awareness about the wonderful boy Jasper is. Most recently, Jasper’s family showed off their shirts on a trip to the beach.
