Degree is searching for more college athletes to join them by encouraging athletes to share their Breaking Limits story of adversity via Degree®’s Instagram. The selection process runs from now through August 17, 2022. Degree will review the entries and select individuals who will receive an offer to join the 2022-2023 #BreakingLimits Team roster.
In a released statement from Degree, UCLA Football student-athlete and Degree partner Chase Griffin says “Degree was one of the first brands I partnered with, and it really helped launch my NIL career and understand the importance of partnering with a brand whose values you share. Along with Degree® providing a platform to help inspire others with my story, the brand also gave me an incredible mentorship opportunity to speak with representatives within Unilever and I’m thrilled that my new #BreakingLimits teammates will have this same life changing experience.” Griffin was a part of the first #BreakingLimits class in 2021-22. The inaugural class will use their social platforms and voices to help find additional athletes for year two with just as inspiring stories of their own.
