WE NEED WARRIORS!

Join our Superhero’s campaign about Sickle Cell Disease

Prodr8 from W&W Beverages Canada has partnered with graphic novel superheroes The Super Felix Brothers to provide an affordable and necessary solution to prevent dehydration in the Sickle Cell community. It was decided to launch a Warrior campaign using the Super Felix Brothers characters from MKJ3, a family-owned media company. The Superheroes are featured on the 2021 limited warrior’s edition of Alkaline ProDR8 water bottles. The “Warriors Campaign” will start June 2021 to the end of the year. Each month on its social media pages will feature a celebrity, TV and Radio personality, influencer, athletes, or supporters of the Sickle Cell community who will talk about the campaign, invite others to join the campaign and encourage people to buy cases of our bottles.

This national campaign is in support of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of Canada Hydration Week what will be held from June 19 to June 26. This includes our SC awareness day on June 19 and the World Hydration day on June 23.

‘Warrior’s always Hydrates’ is the Warrior challenge to encourage the Sickle Cell community and any Canadians to always be hydrated. People love alkaline water for its ultra-hydrating, pH-balancing abilities.

Facts on hydration

By the time you feel thirsty, your body has lost more than 1 percent of its total water - so let's not feel thirst. Take a break right now and have one of our warrior's bottles.

The average person could live without food for nearly a month, but we could only survive about one week without water - that's how essential water is to human life. Some of us can't go a day without coffee, but that's a different story.

If you didn't know good hydration for those with sickle cell promotes healthy blood flow and reduces the chance of the red blood cells sickling and sticking together. It keeps the blood cells suppie so they can move more freely within the blood vessels. If they don't drink enough water, their blood cells become stickier and struggle to move through the body. This could result in the blood cells getting stuck and lead to a crisis.

Where the Fundraising money goes

The Sickle Cell Disease Association of Canada, SCDAC is in the process of developing the first National Sickle Cell Patient Registry that will provide hard evidence to researchers and policy makers on the complications, burden of illness and other quality of life factors affecting those who are living with SCD. The registry will officially count any adult or child who has sickle cell disease or who carries the sickle cell trait. It is a private, secure and evidence-based place to store their information and it is completely voluntary. By being in the registry, this will make them visible to the health care system and is an essential step to not only providing a proper quality of care and treatments, but to save their lives. Having this registry with as many people in it as possible, will help us advocate for more funding for research and to get available life saving drugs to Canada.

Our goal is to sell 50,000 cases. Warriors help us raise awareness for Sickle Cell Disease in Canada.

You can purchase PRO DR8 Alkaline PH8.1 water on our Sickle Cell Warriors Edition 2021 Amazon store.
You can purchase 1 case of 12 bottles for $30 ($2.50 each) OR 1 case of 24 bottles for $48 ($2 each).
