Santia Deck's Historical Sneaker Company, TRONUS® LLC Joins Sisters Network® Inc. To Fight Breast Cancer in Black Community
Following major wins for the brand - including successfully partnering with Footlocker Inc.'s Eastbay Division - TRONUS® is continuing in their commitment to and connection with the community via a Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign in partnership with Sisters Network® Inc.
"Last year at this time we were just starting out. This year, we've come so far and had so many big wins . . . it was important for us to be intentional about partnering with a community leading group to support this cause", shared TRONUS COO - Cynthia Cureton-Robles. Those wins have echoed throughout the industry; reverberating off of the backdrop of TRONUS' unconventional leadership and history-making origin story. As the first sneaker company owned by a woman athlete - with a Black Mother-Daughter team at the helm - their sprint past six-figures in record time, successful showing at the MAGIC tradeshow in Las Vegas, and successfully launching on Footlocker's Eastbay.com proves the brand is making a permanent place for themselves in the competitive space of large scale athletic and athleisure goods. At just over one year in business TRONUS calls direct attention to the fact that they do not fit the existing mold. They don't intend to. Their interest is in creating a new way and serving as an example to every other outsider looking to disrupt a field. The alignment with Sisters Network® Inc. makes perfect sense in that way.
Likewise, Sisters Network® Inc. does not shy away from the fact that their focus is on serving the thousands of underserved Black women with their breast cancer education, advocacy and programming. Authentic representation is key for both entities. In a time when leadership across all sectors is being called upon to add and amplify the voices of those who've been historically marginalized . . . partnerships like these speak even louder on purpose. "Sisters Network® Inc. (SNI) is excited to partner with TRONUS®, LLC., for the "Warriors Wear Pink" campaign during National Breast Cancer Awareness month. As a leader in the Black Breast Cancer movement, Sisters Network® Inc. appreciates that TRONUS®, LLC., whose mission of making your health a top priority aligns with our organization will be donating funds to support Sisters Network® Inc., fight against breast cancer in the Black community nationwide,"
During the month of October, TRONUS will be donating 20% of the proceeds from purchases of their pink Warrior sneakers to Sisters Network® Inc. as a part of the "Warriors Wear Pink" campaign. They'll also be encouraging people to get their mammograms, which Sisters Network® Inc. is offering for free.
