Our first 2019 Unlocked Project honoree is Kira Karlstrom. This Michigan native is a former professional basketball player turned Emmy Award Winning Marketing and Creative Executive, who has survived cancer, chronic Epstein Barr and other personal and public challenges along the way.
She has designed the “Embrace the Feeling” Refocus Band as a reminder that there is more to gain from facing your pain than fearing it.
We will be donating 50% of the proceeds of this band to Kira’s charity of choice, The Born This Way Foundation. This foundation is committed to the wellness of young people and empowering them to create a kinder and braver world through community programs and partnerships.
We hope this inspirational bracelet is a daily reminder that you are stronger than your emotions once you work through them and not past them. Let’s be strong together.
