USATF Foundation Supports Bras for Girls with Gear Donation

SEATTLE, WA – The USATF Foundation is proud to announce the donation of over 3,900 tee shirts to the non-profit Bras for Girls, an organization designed to help keep girls in sport.

The mission of Bras For Girls is to donate sports bras and exercise gear to girls, targeting late elementary to middle school girls – an age at which some girls choose to stop participating in sport due to discomfort with their changing bodies. In addition to bra donations, Bras For Girls shares educational content with a wide spectrum of girls and women about breast development and body changes, and how to accurately choose and fit a sports bra. Since 2017, Bras for Girls has donated over 23,000 bras to middle school girls in need. Bras for Girls plans to keep growing the program every year.

“We are gratified by the USATF Foundation’s support of the Bras for Girls mission; a lack of a sports bra or exercise apparel should never be a barrier for girls’ participation in sport. Once girls feel empowered, there’s no limit to what they can do!” said Sarah Lesko, Bras for Girls Executive Director.
