Even with her tournaments cancelled, tennis icon Serena Williams, a cofounder of Mission Cooling Gear, manages to stay fit and active. She believes strongly in the brand’s ability to keep you cool and comfortable all day long. Mission’s unique cooling fabrics enhance the natural process of evaporation and provide immediate cooling that lasts for hours.
