#ShowUP, #JoinIN or just #TRY
ShowUP is our monthly programme to provide direct marketing and promotional support to a range of events – to watch, #TRY or #JoinIN. It might be watching a rugby match or entering a half marathon . . . when you commit to #ShowUP – you know there will be other ‘newbies’ there – all keen to support WomenSport and SportsWomen.
Why? We believe that if folk don’t #ShowUP and #JoinIN – then the media won’t cover events, organisers won’t provide extra activities, advertisers won’t advertise and TV channels will continue to shun women’s sport. And worst of all . . . the athletes and players won’t feel appreciated, won’t perform as well, miss out on becoming role models and will just give up. You CAN make a difference – whatever the sport.
Here’s the programme we have in place for 2014/15. We will support an event each month which fits WSNet’s values in getting more women more ACTIVE. We don't charge for this but in return we will look for 'Value-In-Kind' reciprocation for our marketing/promotional support. If you want help reaching our 50,000 plus community please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
