What is We Dare to Bare all about?

dare_to_bare_2018-233.jpg

At We Dare To Bare, we’re taking a stand for those suffering from body image issues, physical inactivity and the emotional and psychological consequences of an unrealistic standard of beauty. This is your chance to take ownership over your body, build confidence in yourself and your abilities and drive change forward so other girls and women are empowered to do the same.

We Dare to Bare is more than a sweaty fun weekend activity, it is a movement that supports Movemeant Foundation, a non-profit which empowers girls and women by providing them with resources, opportunities and experiences to use physical movement as a tool to build confidence and self-worth. This mission is important because helping women build confidence in themselves and their abilities has a positive impact on their personal lives but also on society as a whole.

I'm registered to participate in a SoulCycle class. Do I need to register for the other classes separately?  

Yes. All individual classes are sold separately. Only with the VIP ticket option are multiple classes included. If you are registered for SoulCycle in addition to other classes, your fundraising commitment still stands.

dare_to_bare_2018-55.jpg

Do I select my bike for the SoulCycle class?

There's no bad seat in the house when you're tapping it back in a We Dare to Bare class, especially when you are surrounded with the presence and buzz of Manhattan streets in the middle of Union Square Park.  We have handled your bike assignments which will be distributed to you when you check in at registration. Special requests can be submitted to wdtb@movemeant.org up to 2 weeks before the event.

How do I get my We Dare to Bare sports bra?

You can pick up your We Dare to Bare sports bra from Sweaty Betty Flatiron location during the designated time and dates specified for packet pick-up in the days prior to the event. All participants who pick up their sports bras at packet pick-up will also receive a complimentary SoulCycle class pass.

If you are unable to attend packet pick-up, no problem! You can grab your gear on-site at the event by heading to our Movemeant Retail booth!

CHECKING IN THE DAY OF THE EVENT

Doors open at 10:00 AM

We will open registration at 9:30am but you will not be allowed to enter the park until 10am.

We hope that you will join us for the entire event — moving, laughing, eating and enjoying the day in your body but if you can’t attend from 10-2:30, please plan to arrive at registration at least 30 minutes before your class. If you did not pick up your sports bra at packet pick up, you should factor in wait times at both the Movemeant Retail Booth and the changing rooms just to be safe.

First things first

Once you have arrived, please make your way to the Event Registration Check-In Tent. 

  • SoulCycle Riders: At check-in, you’ll receive your bike assignments and your event access wristband. You can pick up your shoes at the shoe tent near the SoulCycle bikes. Water will be provided for you on your bike by our partners at Flow.

  • Festival Participants: At check-in, you’ll receive your event access wristband. At that point, you’re free to begin exploring all our event activities and head over to the Movemeant Retail Booth to grab your sports bra if you haven’t already.

  • General Admission participants will receive their gift bags at registration.

  • VIP participants can pick up their gift bags in the VIP Wellness Lounge.

  • If they didn’t already do so at packet pick-up, participants can pick up their sports bras at the Movemeant Retail Booth.

 

FOOD AND DRINKS

As with any fitness class, you want to stay well-hydrated and well-fed. It’s advisable that you eat a light snack 30 minutes before your workout and have a snack afterwards to refuel those muscles!  There will be water on-site provided by Flow as well as snacks available in your gift bags and throughout the park. Check out Siren Snacks, Pacific Catch and the Movemeant booth to up your snack game. At the VIP level, you’ll also be provided with pre-ride snacks and a light lunch for after you rock that bike.

What does ‘Do it for you. Do it for her.’ mean?

dare_to_bare_2018-145.jpg

Do it for you. Do it for her is the campaign theme running for We Dare to Bare 2019 events. It is all about channeling the challenges we experienced when we were younger to celebrate the journey to become who we are today. By remembering and recognizing our own challenges, we develop a deeper understanding for the value that Movemeant Foundation’s impact programs provide to adolescent girls today; offering them opportunities to build confidence in themselves and their abilities, learn how to maintain a positive relationship with their bodies and helping them to develop a strong community of female support.

Do it for you.

Your fundraising efforts also help Movemeant Foundation continue putting We Dare to Bare festivals on annually so you and other women can have access to fun community-building experiences and important self-love and body-positivity messaging. These events are important to help women realize their strength and resilience while building a strong network of female support. All of which works together to help you become the best version of yourself so you can break down your barriers and start working towards conquering your dreams.                                  

Do it for her.

By signing up for We Dare to Bare you are investing in yourself and daring to overcome your insecurities in an effort to uncover your true strength and confidence. By fundraising for We Dare to Bare you are investing in the future of women by raising money to give young girls the opportunity to participate in the same confidence building practices.

Fundraising FAQ


Fundraising FAQ


553_1S8mIV_20160707_sheplayswewin_outlaws3799.jpg

Why should I fundraise? 

We Dare to Bare is more than a sweaty fun weekend activity, it is a movement that supports Movemeant Foundation, a non-profit which empowers girls and women by providing them with resources, opportunities and experiences to use physical movement as a tool to build confidence and self-worth. This mission is important because helping women build confidence in themselves and their abilities has a positive impact on their personal lives but also on society as a whole. 

Studies show that the confidence developed through sports and physical activity can lead to success in academics, professional development, closing the wage gap, getting more women into leadership and C-Level positions and decrease unhealthy epidemics such as eating disorders and obesity. 

Now THAT is something to fundraise for! 

 

 

Where do my fundraising dollars go?

IMG_4583.JPG

All proceeds from the event benefit Movemeant Foundation and our programs which empower girls and women by providing them with resources, opportunities and experiences to use physical movement as a tool to build confidence and self-worth. We have several programs that service this mission including:

  • Meant to Move Grants: a grant program that provides financial support to adolescent girls in need to pursue their movement-based goals and gain access to opportunities that they may not have had available without the assistance. 

  • Generation Confident: A body-positive middle school curriculum that fosters discoverability of the many ways our bodies can move and helps them to develop healthy, positive relationships with their bodies. Through our program, we strive to enable girls to attain the knowledge and skills that will help them tap into their own inner strength and resilience. To build confidence in themselves and their abilities so they are able to not only face life’s challenges with strength but also work towards their dreams with a belief that they can accomplish incredible things. 

We believe that every girl should be told she is worthy and capable and taught how to build a healthy relationship with her body as well as learn how to develop positive and supportive relationships with her peers. That is why this year, Movemeant Foundation is raising money to fund an update to our curriculum content and format which would empower us to impact thousands of more girls by scaling the program into more schools nationally. 

 

 

How do I fundraise?

Asking people for money can be scary and awkward. That is why we are leaning on teams to offer the support of a community of like-minded individuals who are all working towards the same goal. Additionally, we have created a variety of fundraising resources to support you in all of your fundraising efforts. From social media images to Movemeant impact info guides to exact text that you can use to populate your emails and social media captions, we have thought of it all! If you are in need of additional resources or want to chat about best practices, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly at wdtb@movemeant.org

What is a fundraising team and why do I have to join one?

This year Movemeant Foundation is introducing teams to our fundraising offerings to inspire community collaboration and provide additional support that will allow us to raise additional funds for our impact programming.

Tackling the issue of female empowerment and body-positivity is an uphill battle and if we want to make any “movemeant,” working together can create a far wider impact and reach a broader audience. That means collaborating to spread the word and raise money for a cause we are all passionate about… Not to mention, working as a team is a whole lot more fun! 

All registrants will be prompted to join a team when they register. Each team is led by our participating fitness studios and your favorite instructors. They each have planned their own unique fun challenges, activities and exclusive experiences to get their team members working together and strengthening our community of badasses. 

 

 

What does joining a team mean for my own fundraising goals?

All registrants will be prompted to join a team when they register. These fundraising teams will be led by our participating studios and their instructors. Joining a fundraising team is a fun way to strengthen our community and make a sometimes-awkward activity (asking people for money) into a fun, friendly game! 

Your team affiliation does not affect your own fundraising efforts in that you will always have your own exclusive fundraising page and link to share with your friends, family and a network of support. However, by being on a team, the dollars you raise for Movemeant Foundation will also be displayed on your team’s fundraising page, showing the total amount raised by all of your team members! 

 

 

What teams do I have to pick from?

Each team is lead by our participating studio partners and all of your favorite instructors. The teams will be as follows:

  • Team AKT

  • Team Ready Set Mo

  • Team Pure Barre

  • Team SoulCycle

  • Team The Class by Taryn Toomey

  • Team Y7

  • The Free Spirits

Select the team whose messaging you most align with and whose instructors make you feel strong and unstoppable! More of a lone wolf? Join our Free Spirits Team and bypass the engagement of teamwork. 

 

 

How do I actually join a fundraising team?

When you go to register, the first thing you will be asked is “Would you like to join a team?” Each team is lead by our participating studio partners and all of your favorite instructors. Select the team that you most align with and whose messaging and instructors make you feel strong and unstoppable! 

Once registered, activate your personal fundraising page from the automated email you receive from Movemeant Foundation. We will also send you an email shortly after registration with links to our closed facebook groups. You should join our We Dare to Bare NYC closed facebook group for all participants as well as the closed group exclusively designated for your team’s members. By joining these groups you will get access to the most up to date event information and exclusive experiences. 

 

 

Is my designated team dependent on which class I am registered for?

No! You can affiliate with any team that your heart desires. 

 

 

How do I pick know which team to pick?

Just like your affinity for Gryffindor vs Hufflepuff, you should select the studio that best aligns with your personality. This team will become a community for you as each team will have its own closed facebook group for you to interact on and engage with the other members. Your fundraising team affiliation is not dependent on your class selection(s).

 

 
IMG_4221.JPG

Is fundraising required to participate at We Dare to Bare?

There is only a fundraising minimum requirement for attendees participating in General Admission SoulCycle classes ($350) and attendees who have registered as a VIP ($2,000). If those participants have not met their fundraising goal by event day, they will be asked to pay the difference at registration. Attendees exclusively signed up for Festival Classes (non-SoulCycle) are given the opportunity to fundraise with their own unique fundraising page but there is no fundraising minimum that they must meet before event day.

 

 

If I have a fundraising requirement (SoulCycle or VIP), do I still pick a team?

Yes! Go ahead and affiliate with any team your heart desires. All attendees will have a unique fundraising page to track their personal donations. Those donations will also be visible under their affiliated team fundraising page so any funds raised by your independent efforts will benefit BOTH you and your team. You are not obligated to your team’s unique fundraising goal, you are only required to hit the specific fundraising goal associated with your ticket type (GA SoulCycle $350 or VIP $2,000) in order to participate at We Dare to Bare.
