Grieg Rightford and Willy Tokona our crazy New Zealand sponsored athletes are off to run 5 marathons in 5 cities, in 5 days! Why you may ask? These guys are training for the Marathon of the Sands (234 kms across the Sahara Desert) and are aiming to raise $50,000 for the Malaghan Research Institute.
Greig and Willy love running in our light weight tee’s and shorts as it keeps their temperature regulated, is breathable and it doesn’t stink! (You would hope so after 5 marathons in a row!). They will also be wearing Icebreaker in the toughest footrace on earth in the Sahara desert in 50degree heat! So New Zealand fans, get to your nearest marathon city (dates below) and support them as they run! We know we will be.

In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, Icebreaker learned of a plea for underwear for displaced residents. “What we do need right now … is underwear. Undergarments for children and adults,” Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro told a local TV program. “That’s what we need. That’s what we’re in desperate need of.”
Icebreaker has answered the call with a donation of 500 pairs of underwear. Pictured here is Our NYC Regional Manager Autumn Joyce and John Fletcher of Grand Central Neighboorhood Social Services
“Sometimes a gift as simple as a fresh pair of underwear can make someone’s day and their outlook on tomorrow a bit brighter,” said Autumn.
