About this Strong Tank Top
This shirt was requested by roller derby skater Killanois from Windy City in Chicago. She both plays sports and lives with the autoimmune disorder Hashimoto's. Founder of Strong Athletic, Nadia Kean, also lives with Hashimoto's and knows the ups and downs that humans with the disorder feel everyday. From brain fog, to apathy to lethargy, it impacts everyone differently. In the message that she wrote after she received her tank she said, "This past weekend I played my first division 1 playoff knowingly ill. I've trained all year for this weekend in hopes to advance to champs... I'm so proud of my team and myself for how far we've come. I feel like I played well even if the score doesn't that. I will continue to work hard and strive for champs with my team in the coming years and prove that even with chronic illness, you can compete at the highest level of sport." We couldn't agree more with Killa and we're so proud that she wanted to represent herself as a #strongathletic athlete.
$1 of every shirt sold will go to a foundation for people living with chronic illness. The organization will be announced.
This shirt is screen printed by hand in Austin, Texas by Amanda at the Artists Screen Printing Coop. This shirt was designed by Nadia of Strong Athletic.

About the Shirt
The words "Strong Athletic Chronically Ill" and the Strong Athletic logo are printed in white on the front, the logo is also printed on the back. The tank is a tri-black, which means it is not solid black, rather it has a grainy look to it, making it our favorite tank that we carry.
The shirt is made by Bella and Canvas. It is designed to fit loose and flowy. Wear it with your favorite sports bra, because it's going to show a little near the bottom of the armholes. This shirt does not shrink after the first wash. The color of the shirt and the ink stay vibrant after many washes.
