About the Strong Athletic Nurse Design
Strong Athletic owner Nadia Kean is married to Carla, who happens to be a registered nurse in an emergency department. Every year around Nurse's Week, we have discussed making a Strong Athletic Nurse shirt. Over the years, we've had requests for this design. In 2020 Kerry M., a nursing student, ordered a custom Strong Athletic Nurse shirt for her good friend who passed the NCLEX and that was the push we needed to make it for others. It's obvious that there are many members of the Strong Athletic Family who are proud nurses, or proud to know a nurse, so, because of that, we're doing a small batch to celebrate Nurses Week 2020, which is this month. $1 from each of these shirts will be donated to a non-profit. We're currently asking for recommendations for which organization we should donate to.
In regard to the athleticism and stamina that it takes to be a nurse, many nurses are on their feet for much of their day. For those who work in hospitals, they are likely to work a 12 hour shift. Sometimes they might work that entire 12 hours without an actual break. Many nurses work nightshifts, they are awake and keeping people alive while the rest of their city is asleep. Caring for patients is physically, mentally and emotionally demanding.
We'd like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication that nurses and other medical professionals bring to their jobs everyday. Now, more than ever, it is obvious how essential you are for society.
Nurses are one of many facets of health care, and we would like to acknowledge all of the people who go to work every day to make hospitals and health care function and operate. If there is a profession that you would like recognized by Strong Athletic, please send us an email with your suggestion. We were happy to oblige all of the requests that came in for nurse's shirts, and we'd be happy to make other designs as well. This year, some of the other professions that we've recognized include medics, teachers, coders and military veterans. We're excited to add the Strong Athletic Nurse shirt to the list.
$1 from every shirt sold will go to Feeding America, a non-profit that Strong Athletic supports. Feeding America can provide 10 meals to a family in need from every $1 donated.

For that reason, on May 4, we donated $60 in advance, and that money will be the minimum amount donated, regardless of how many shirts are sold.
