NÃ¨ve Designs, creators of women’s and men’s fashion sweaters and accessories today announced it has partnered with several organizations and events to illustrate its commitment to the community, health and wellness as well as the outdoor industry.
The NÃ¨ve Designs Trudy sweater is named after a wonderful friend and humanitarian, Trudy Turvey. As founder and director of HealthLinks Clinic in Boulder, Colo., Trudy provides therapeutic exercise, rehabilitation and support services for cancer survivors and their families. To support Trudy and her noble endeavor proceeds from the sales of Trudy sweaters will be donated to the HealthLinks Foundation to help provide care for patients otherwise unable to afford clinic services.
â€œI am truly honored that NÃ¨ve Designs has become such a huge supporter of the HealthLinks Clinic and its Foundation whose mission is to provide financial support, education and community outreach for cancer survivors and their families,â€ said Trudy Turvey. â€œThrough our partnerships with company’s like NÃ¨ve, we can help provide services to promote healthy, active survivorship.â€
“I was so impressed with the passion Trudy and her staff exhibit when talking about the HealthLinks Clinic programs, and on listening to her patients speak about their experiences at the clinic,â€ said Tom Irvine, CEO of NÃ¨ve Designs. â€œI knew that this program was an important asset for our community, so when Trudy asked me to join the Foundation board, I had no hesitation in accepting. I immediately knew this was something I could be committed to intensely and make NÃ¨ve Designs part of the crusade.”
Women’s LUNA Mountain Bike Team
NÃ¨ve Designs is a sponsor of The Luna Women’s Mountain Bike Team providing them with sweaters and accessories. The Luna Women’s Mountain Bike Team includes Racing and Ambassador divisions.

â€œI have a huge passion for mountain biking and helping women in our community and throughout the world,â€ said Rhonda Swenson, founder and creative director of NÃ¨ve Designs. â€œThrough our sponsorship with Team Luna, we hope to support women mountain bikers as well and help continue to raise awareness for The Breast Cancer Fund.â€
