Mission E50 is an initiative created by Pliable’s founder, Greg Glynn to increase the popularity of women’s sports by empowering female athletes to go after their dreams.
The “E” stands for equal opportunity for female athletes. The number "50" represents Pliable’s commitment to always represent a client list of more than 50% female athletes.
Mission E50 also provides opportunities and support for female athletes who want to get involved in community events and fundraisers. Through Mission E50, female athletes have raised more than $5,000 for nonprofits and organizations, including the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the Travis Mills Foundation.

The "We Are Lew1ston" design was created by Pliable athlete, Natale Beaudoin, senior captain on the Lewiston High School basketball team. The fundraiser is a way for people to show their support for the city following the tragic mass shootings on October 25, 2023. All proceeds from the merchandise will benefit the families of the victims.
Natalie was one of the first people in her community to speak out and share her support for the city in the hours after the shootings saying: "I am confident that our city, our community, and people across our great state of Maine will come together to support one another. We are one. #LEWISTONSTRONG"
The team will wear the shirts during warm ups every game this season to raise awareness and funds for the families.
Mission E50 is a brand promise from Pliable to always represent a client list more than 50 percent female athletes. Motivated by the love for his daughter Kelsey (pictured) and what she has experienced in sports, Glynn created Mission E50 in her honor. As a result, Pliable and the company's partners are committed to pursue opportunities that will help female athletes build their athlete brand and increase the popularity of women’s sports.
“The growth and development of female athletes since Title IX has been extraordinary. Specifically in the past 5 to 10 years, there has been a dramatic shift in the overall talent level and growth of women’s sports. This is a credit to all the female athletes and role models who have inspired the next generation and raised the bar for what is possible," says Greg Glynn, founder & CEO of Pliable.
As a broadcaster, Glynn has called more than 1,000 games for a wide range of sports, including basketball, field hockey, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, track and field and volleyball. He has seen the growth of women’s sports firsthand.
Glynn says as more female athletes build their athlete brand, more fans and young girls will be attracted to the female athletes as role models and want to play those sports, too.
“The next generation of female athletes is coming. These young female athletes have been inspired by the trailblazing women who have come before them. Name, image and likeness opportunities are the best thing to happen for women's sports since Title IX. This next generation is going to continue to show the world what they can do and it’s going to elevate sports at all levels,” says Glynn.
In 2021, Pliable’s first athlete client was 15-year-old, Kaylyn Bourque. Since then, company has always represented more female athletes than male athletes. As of 2023, Pliable works with more than 24 female athletes across the country.
