Become a sponsor

We are always looking for sponsors for the Fitness Journal for Girls. Sponsorship offers corporate Canada a viable alternative to conventional advertising – it sends a brand message in a much subtler, long-lasting manner. Sport is a key part of Canadian culture, so it is an excellent venue for large and small companies to market themselves. It is a very effective way of associating a corporate brand with the values represented by a particular sport, athlete or initiative like the Fitness Journal For Girls. This is an excellent way for companies to separate themselves from their competition.

Businesses around the globe are understanding more now than ever the importance of supporting girls and women in their goals, dreams and aspirations to help with their bottom line. The Always’ #LikeAGirl campaign, the Dairy Farmers of Canada’s Fueling Women Champions campaign, and Dove’s #MyBeautySays campaign are all great examples of big business targeting women and girls – and winning.

What’s in it for your business?

As a sponsor business, this is an opportunity to reach an audience specific to girls! It demonstrates that you are committed to the success and wellness of our young female Winnipeggers.

Your programs, events or activities can be promoted via our social media channels with a terrific and dedicated following on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The media attention for the Fitness Journal for Girls in 2016 was been incredible. We were featured in the Winnipeg Free Press, the Winnipeg Sun, CTV Morning Live, Global Morning Show live on location, Classic 107 Radio, CJOB with Dahlia Kurtz, CBC Manitoba Radio and Television, Rhythm 104.7, and CJOB with Kevin Burgin. We also received national coverage from Active For Life and international coverage with WiSP, the Global Women’s Sport Network.

We know that the Journal will only continue to grow in its popularity and want to ensure that all girls in Winnipeg have the chance to participate in sport.

  2. Supporter – This level of sponsorship is $500. The Journal has various pages offering journaling activities for the girls. Each page will be ‘brought to you by’ a sponsor. For example, in the 2016 Journal, CRIK Nutrition sponsored Top 10 Nutrition Tips for Kids, and LBS Yoga & Athletic Wear sponsored a page about goal setting. You logo will also appear on the sponsorship page online and in the Journal. Social media and traditional media will be utilized to help promote your business, as well as mention in all media releases regarding the Journal and its activities.
