19 May 2021, LONDON – Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K), one of the world’s leading public relations firms, has won a brief with MANA Group, the entertainment company launched by former triathlete Chris McCormack.
H+K’s scope focuses on the brand’s Pho3nix Foundation, a non-profit organisation that leverages sports to enhance underprivileged children’s health and well-being.
The Foundation’s Sub 7 Sub 8 challenge will see four renowned triathletes attempt to complete a full distance triathlon in under seven (men) or eight hours (women). The ‘Defy the Impossible’ campaign tells the real stories of the athletes and shares the power of chasing seemingly unachievable goals.
H+K’s remit includes raising the profile of the organisation and its blockbuster event with the public and among the sports community ahead of Spring 2022.
The win is the latest for H+K’s Sports practice, which recently also won a mandate with Right To Dream, the international group building an eco-system of academies, professional football clubs and educational institutions around the world.
