The video, which was created by an all-female creative and production team and features USWNT forward Alex Morgan, offers a powerful depiction of strength and how it may be achieved when women cheer for each other, even at a young age.
Secret is calling on all women to share their own personal “All Strength, No Sweat” stories and moments of cheering for each other for a chance to score tickets to a USWNT game. Now through April 15, Secret challenges women everywhere to celebrate those moments of #AllStrengthNoSweat via their social channels. One grand prize winner of the most inspiring story or moment will be selected to win a trip with five friends to watch the USWNT, receive a behind-the-scenes locker room tour and a meet and greet with players at one of their upcoming matches. To enter, applicants must upload a photo or video of their “All Strength, No Sweat” moment or story of cheer or teamwork to Instagram, tagging #AllStrengthNoSweat, #SoccerContest and @SecretDeodorant.
