THE BRAVE BELT

The belt that makes you stronger.

Pediatric cancer is a hard struggle, that finds any parent unprepared.

In this battle for life, children are not the weakest. Their parents are.

To give them the strenght to face so many tough moments, the little heroes of the Kids Kicking Cancer Italia Association created 4 simple martial arts techniques: Breathe, Concentrate, Defend, React.

These techniques, each with a short message, were symbolically printed on a black karate belt which become a support program for parents and kids.

Because together we can be stronger than pain, sadness, anger and fear.

Blow it away.

Close it in your eyes.
