About the Strong Athletic Chronically Ill Shirts
This shirt was requested by roller derby athlete 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.
A portion of every shirt sold has been pre-donated to the National MS Society.
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, based on the original artwork by Cristen Perks. The Strong Athletic logo was designed by Angel Ortega.
