NEW YORK— Cure Hydration, a wellness brand that sells organic hydration mix announced its new partnership today with SheIS, a non-proWfit that connects and mobilizes fans to grow women’s sports. Starting today, Cure will donate 1% of their sales to SheIS to use the power of sports to create a future of, by, and for strong women.
Lauren Picasso had the idea for Cure while training for a triathlon. “Sports have always had an incredibly positive impact on me. As an endurance athlete for over 20 years, I’ve found that achieving my fitness goals has translated to other aspects of my life, giving me the confidence to challenge myself personally and professionally.”
Founded in 2017 and launched to the public on May 1, 2018, SheIS was established with a vision to elevate women in sports. Co-Founder of SheIS, Caiti Donovan, explains that “we treat women’s sports as a business rather than a cause. Female athletes are worth watching not for charity but because there is true athleticism, entertainment value, and an opportunity to give young girls role models.”
Today only 4% of sports coverage features women. Donovan explains that “it’s up to us – fans, business leaders, and athletes alike – to show the world that yes, there is an appetite for women’s sports! If you say you are interested in supporting women in sports, then prove it.”
Outside of donations, Cure will support the SheIS evergreen call-to-action to watch and attend women’s sports. The campaign #WomenWorthWatching was launched as a 6-week campaign around the US Open in 2019 with a hero video that included footage from a variety of major moments in women’s sports and a voiceover from Billie Jean King. Based on the incredible success of the campaign, the decision was made to turn the campaign into an evergreen call-to-action for SheIS which Cure will now also promote.
