Sophia Stripe is named after a lifelong friend and nearly sister of Kristine's, Sophia Giorgini. At age 17, she became a caregiver to her mother fighting a cancerous brain tumor. Kristine also became a caregiver when she was 11, as her father survived a massive stroke. Through the Sophia Stripe, we bring awareness to this significant role that is often overlooked. For every purchase of the Sophia Stripe, 5% of proceeds go to Vs. Cancerto cure kids cancer. Vs. Cancer empowers any sports team, any athlete, any community to help kids with cancer. As a signature fundraising campaign of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, proceeds are split between child life programs in local hospitals and national pediatric brain tumor research.
