I often heard or saw such questions like “what’s the point of these silicone wristbands?” but I can tell you responsibly that they didn’t have a fixed meaning unless, in certain situations, they will become meaningful according to the theme, while there are at least three kinds of meaningful wristbands we know about, listed as below.
When it comes to silicone wristbands, I’m sure everyone will be firstly thinking of the world’s first silicone wristbands– yellow “LIVESTRONG” wristbands, which is meant to be healthy and fight against cancer.
In September 1996, Armstrong of 25 years old(Lance Armstrong) was diagnosed with testicular cancer and only had a 50% survival rate.
But he defeated the disease doggedly and won the overall champion of the tour DE France for six consecutive years from 1999. As a result, he was regarded as the icon with the spirit of self-improvement by many Americans. After that, a foundation was set up and named after himself, which is dedicated to helping cancer patients.
Before the tour DE France of 2005, Nike Inc. designed a kind of yellow silicone wristbands as the sponsor of the foundation, The famous quote of Armstrong “LIVE STRONG” was printed on these yellow wristbands. At that time, all people wearing the yellow “LIVE STRONG” wristbands shared the common goal of fighting against the disease of cancer, and make life stronger. So yellow LIVE STRONG wristbands also represents a spirit, a spirit to fight against fate, a spirit to march forward relentlessly.
