All individuals regardless of age, race, gender, or disabilities want inclusion. The Metaverse—a modern virtual realm where physical limits don’t apply—has not yet met these desires.
For this reason, Paralympic athlete and advocate, Blake Leeper, in collaboration with Rexona, a deodorant company hosted the world’s first Metaverse marathon aimed at breaking physical barriers and building a world void of societal stereotypes.
However, the Metaverse is still a work in progress, which is why Rexona Deodorant partnered with the virtual reality platform, Decentraland, to help build a realm where people of all kinds are included and represented in the virtual world.
Collaborating with Decentraland, Rexona’s first metaverse move was to introduce an all-inclusive collection of avatars. Made accessible for the first time at the Metatron are recently built digital accessories like wheelchairs and leg prostheses for running which ensures that disabled people are represented and enables participants to create an embodiment of their unique identities.
Furthermore, Rexona, apart from the Metatron, illustrates its ambition to change lives through the Breaking Limits Program. The program is committed to supporting youth sports institutions, whose members struggle with limitations due to sexual orientation, racial differences, physical disabilities, gender, financial restraint, and so on.
Giving them access to trainers and mentors, the program archives the brand’s goal of empowering millions of young people and transforming their lives through the power of movement by 2030.
