P3R launches the first-ever Ready.Set.MOVE. box focusing on celebrating and empowering women
PITTSBURGH, PA (February 3, 2021) – Today, on National Girls & Women in Sports Day, P3R is proud to announce a new partnership with Magee-Womens Research Institute & Foundation (MWRIF).
P3R, the engine behind the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon and the creators of the Ready.Set.MOVE. subscription box, and MWRIF are working together to support women runners and inspire the next generation of girls to run. MWRIF will help P3R achieve the goal of educating and empowering women on their health and wellness journeys throughout the year—and ultimately empower them to accomplish their goals around running and movement during 2021.
“This new partnership inspired us at P3R to come up with new and meaningful ways to get women moving,” said P3R VP of Partnerships & Runner Experience, Caroline Fitzgerald. “We are excited to introduce the first-ever Ready.Set.MOVE. box that will not only inspire female runners, but also benefit the generations of female runners to come.”
As part of the partnership, P3R and MWRIF are launching the first-ever women’s-themed Ready.Set.MOVE.box. The box is curated with fitness items and goodies that will both support and empower women along their wellness journeys.
This box is available for purchase starting today and will ship in time for International Women’s Day on March 8, 2021. For each box sold, $10 will be donated directly to Girls on the Run Pittsburgh. This nonprofit organization is dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.
“We are excited to partner with P3R this year. As a research institute focused on women’s health, our organizational goals are closely aligned: to support and empower women, and lead positive change that impacts the health of women in our community,” said Janice Devine, Executive Director of MWRIF. “The Ready.Set.MOVE. box is a great way to kick off the partnership and celebrate every woman on this year’s International Women’s Day.”
Some items in the box include Olympic runner Alexi Pappas’ book Bravey: Chasing Dreams, Befriending Pain, and Other Big Ideas and Nathan Saferun Ripcord siren. Throughout the month, P3R will also reveal other box items from partners at Magee-Womens Research Institute and Foundation, DICK’S Sporting Goods, Brooks Running, Nuun Hydration, Beyond Boss, and more.
The International Women’s Day Ready.Set.MOVE. box is available for purchase here while supplies last.
P3R and MWRIF’s partnership for 2021 also includes an episode of P3R’s Behind The Start Line Podcast focusing on the intersection of women’s health and running. Additionally, MWRIF is the Official Partner of the 2021 Virtual DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events PR Bell (personal record bell) that will help all runners celebrate their accomplishments come May.
