With 2018 in the books we are excited to announce that The Sports Bra Project is officially a nonprofit! Our sincere thanks to everyone at Wiley Rein LLP for their support and for generously donating the time and expertise to guide us through this process.
First deliveries of the new year
Football For The World
Sports bras were included in gear given to athletes from the Edith Dalton School in Jamaica. "The level of excitement was through the roof when the Edith Dalton High School team found out they were getting sports bras donated to their team," said Monica Bosiljevac , Founder of Football For The World.
Leveling The Playing Field
"The sports bras donated to LPF have been huge for our beneficiary programs,” said Maitlyn Healy, Executive Director Leveling The Playing Field. “We have never received brand new sports bras as donations before, so our programs jumped for joy at that first newsletter announcement. This donation has also forced programs to think about this need that young girls often do not feel comfortable vocalizing, especially if they have male coaches. We so appreciate The Sports Bra Project and all they do for our female athletes!"
The Sports Bra Project is made possible through the work of an incredible network of women representing all sports and every level of play from recreational to elite college teams.
