Right now, we're focusing this passion toward helping Charleston high school girls in the JROTC program. Through our work with the Charleston County Schools Wellness Committee and the MUSC Lean Team, it was brought to our attention in 2013 that many of these girls were struggling with a high BMI because they shied away from exercise. When asked further, it became clear that many of the girls were embarrassed and uncomfortable to do physical training with their male classmates because they didn't own a sports bra.
We have now partnered with Moving Comfort to provide high-quality, high-support sports bras FREE for all these students in need. Through our Support the Girls weekends, we offer a buy-one-donate-one promotion so our customers can help us meet this need in the community.
Working with individual high schools, we set up bra fitting days so our staff can fit each female JROTC student for their proper size and needs. We then order the bras and deliver them upon arrival. On delivery day the girls get the chance to try out their new sports bras while we walk them through a good form running clinic.
