VIRUS strongly condemns the surge in violence against Asian-Americans & Pacific Islanders. We stand in solidarity with and support the AAPI community across our country. Violence and hate have no place in our gyms, our communities, or our world.
VIRUS is an international company with diversity, openness and inclusion programmed into the fabric of our company DNA. From our staff and management team to our customers worldwide, our mission is to celebrate everyone’s passion. We strive to promote safe, inclusive spaces and welcome all who wear or want to wear VIRUS products.
No one should live in fear due to their ethnicity or race. Millions of Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders play essential roles in our communities that we belong to and love. Fighting racism and building a better future is an ongoing effort that we are all responsible for.
We are athletes, driven by challenges to make ourselves and our world a stronger, healthier place. Our journeys, adventures and competitions are richer when everyone can participate and feel like they belong. VIRUS is about pursuing the passion that defines us. This includes building spaces where every member within our communities can also pursue their passion without fear.
Learning and education is a process. We have put together a list of resources surrounding mental health and educational resources for AAPI communities below:
