NOT DONE YET MARATHON

ABOUT THE NOT DONE YET MARATHON
Degree® aims for a world where everyone has the confidence to move more by smashing the barriers that hold them back – including self-doubt. And just when you feel like you can’t go any further or you feel the world is saying you’re done, that's the time to push through and break your own limits. That's the time to prove you are Not Done Yet.
This is why Degree® assembled and supported the Not Done Yet Marathon Team - three inspiring athletes from varying backgrounds who all experienced challenges when previously running a marathon, casuing them not to complete their race - and champiioned them as they ran the 26.2 miles at the 2022 San Francisco Marathon. Proving to the world that even though they didn't complete a marathon in the past, they showed to everyone they were Not Done Yet.
To lead the team, Degree® tapped marathon runner, author, and The Bachelorette star Tyler Cameron, to serve as the Not Done Yet Team Trainer. In this role, Cameron shared personal stories from his own marathon experience with the runners to help motivate them in the days leading up to the race.
MEET THE NOT DONE YET ATHLETES
AND IT DOESN'T STOP THERE
To further the commitment to support all champions of movement, Degree® is working with non-profit Achilles International, an organization that helps transform the lives of people with disabilities around the globe through athletic programs and social connection. Degree® donated $50,000 to the non-profit, which will help up to 100 athletes get to the starting line of a running race and dispel any self-doubt about participation in athletics. “The generous donation from Degree® Deodorant will empower more Achilles athletes with disabilities to get to the start line and achieve their race goals. Like Degree, we're committed to breaking down barriers to achievement," said Emily Glasser, President and CEO of Achilles International.
Beyond the NDY Marathon, Degree® exemplifies its purpose through the Breaking Limits Program—a five-year, $5 million commitment to transform lives through the power of movement.
The Program supports youth sports organizations, whose members face the biggest hurdles to being active – including barriers due to race, sexual orientation, disabilities, financial limitations, gender, age, socioeconomic status, and more. It provides them with access to coaches and mentors, along with safe spaces to move. The program brings to life the brand's aim to empower millions of young people to transform their lives through the power of movement by 2030.
