In celebration and awareness of the 'Dare To Bare' Charity Fitness Festival returning to New York City on Sunday, October 1st, Movemeant Foundation had the honor of ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, August 23. This venerable, longstanding tradition offered Movemeant the opportunity to generate awareness for health, fitness and empowerment programs for women and girls across the country.
On behalf of the team at Movemeant Foundation, it is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our Vice President, Kelly Hurley. She was 31 years old. Many of you knew Kelly as a vibrant and unique personality; a steadfast champion of social activism. This included everything from her work in women's self-acceptance and body-positivity at Movement Foundation, to sparking engaging political dialogue on women's rights, LGBTQ, and more.
We challenge the status quo by being radically honest about our bodies. We bare our #bellyjelly to show others that it’s strength, grace and grit that lies underneath. We work hard. We fight hard. We sweat hard. To start a revolution where we feel powerful in the skin we’re in.
Meredith Corporation, the nation’s leading media and marketing company serving 102 million American women, hosted its first-ever BrandFront presentation and unveiled its compelling new “Partnerships That Will Change the World” platforms, which included Movemeant Foundation.
In recognition of philanthropic female entrepreneurship, Movemeant Foundation has been invited to ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange, tomorrow, August 29 at 9:30 am Eastern Standard Time.
