Olympic weightlifter Sarah Robles is literally the strongest woman in America, but she is barely getting by — she lives on $400 a month — because she doesn’t have the backing of a major company.
Nike recently launched their “Voices” campaign, which honors great female athletes — women who run, box and play basketball. Why not a woman who lifts weights?
Tell Nike to step up — give Sarah a living wage, and give girls all different types of role models to look up to. 
Tell them to sponsor Sarah Robles.

SUCCESS: SHE NOW HAS A SPONSOR! Solve Media told us our story inspired them to sponsor Sarah. Solve Media CEO Ari Jacoby:

“It pained me to see someone at the top of her game working for what amounts to a few hundred dollars a month. 
She’s the very best of the best, poised to end a 12-year medal drought in her sport. And she’s living this way because it’s her ultimate dream to represent her country and achieve greatness in the sport that she loves.”

Internet activism: it works.

Ultimate Badass.
