DULUTH—National women’s fashion retailer Maurices is selling the 2012 version of the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) Relay for Life Hope Bracelet in all of its more than 800 stores. The company is also selling the bracelet online through June 30.

Designed exclusively for Maurices by fashion designer and stylist Christopher Straub, the Hope Bracelet features silver-tone charms engraved with the message “hope.” The bracelets retail for $6, and Maurices will contribute a minimum of $3 from each sale toward its fundraising efforts for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.

This is the eighth year Maurices has participated in Relay For Life, the ACS’s signature fundraising activity and the largest global cancer-fighting fundraising movement. In addition to its contributions through the sale of Hope Bracelets, Maurices will also raise money through its associate and community involvement in Relay For Life events.

"We’re grateful to have the continued support of Maurices," said Terry Music, chief mission delivery officer for the American Cancer Society. "Through sales of the Hope Bracelet, the American Cancer Society will be able to continue the fight for a world with less cancer and more birthdays."
