Supporting GIRLS in reaching THEIR FULL POTENTIAL

The goal of the grant is to fuel the positive power that sports have on a young woman’s self-confidence and help to strengthen its presence so it can be have lasting effects throughout her life.
This year we are excited to announce our partnership with Athleta Girl that will fund 30 of our $1,000 Meant to Move grants! These grants help girls from underserved communities take their game to the next level by providing the financial support that will help her to grow mentally, physically and emotionally. All in pursuit of helping her reach her full potential.
