LOS ANGELES, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Zevia, the leading zero-calorie, naturally sweetened soda brand, today announced its sponsorship of the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games, the worldwide competition to find the Fittest On Earth®. Zevia is currently #12 among the top 20 low/zero calorie sodas in the U.S., and its standing as most rapidly growing and the only natural brand in the top 20 make it a great fit for the CrossFit Games. Zevia is naturally sweetened, Non-GMO Project Verified and has created the better-for-you soda category with a focus on premium, healthier ingredients and radical transparency.
As part of the agreement, Zevia will be the presenting sponsor of the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games West Regional competition in Portland, Oregon. Zevia will continue the sponsorship with a large activation at the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games finals this July at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA.
"Zevia is a mission-driven organization focused on helping people take control of their own health through diet and exercise," said Zevia CEO Paddy Spence. "In addition, our community is roughly half Millennial and focused on Paleo and that's why we believe supporting the CrossFit Games is natural for our brand. The sponsorship connects us with a uniquely natural-minded audience and offers another example of Zevia going where traditional sodas have not."
Zevia's sponsorship will include on-site sampling and branding, digital and social media promotion, along with content featuring competing champions and the everyday athletes. Zevia will look to use the sponsorship of the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games as a platform to raise awareness about zero-calorie, naturally-sweetened ways to reduce sugar consumption.
