  • The Sweaty Run

    10.07

    October of 2007 is when the Sweaty Run began! Here’s a pic of Donna sporting our original Sweaty Bands logo and font – Curlz MT. The font was a little too cutesy, so we decided it needed an update!

    Like many small businesses, our first office originated in our house. This is a pic of our basement storage room that was converted into the Sweaty Bands warehouse. We had one sewing machine and Donna would sit at the bar in the basement and sew all day and night while watching reruns of Desperate Housewives!

    Duramed Championship 2008
    06.08

    We decided with zero dollars in the budget that event marketing was going to be our main advertising expense. We wanted to show off the brand in front of as many female athletes as possible. This is a pic of our first event ever. In June 2008 we sponsored the Duramed Championship in Mason, OH. This is a developmental tour for the LPGA. We became friends with many! These chicks can hit the golf ball!

    After experiencing great success with the lady golfers, we decided to give pro beach volleyball a shot. This is a pic of the packed house at the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball tournament in Cincinnati, OH. This was the weekend after Misty and Kerri brought home the gold medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympics! Sweaty Bands did great!
