100,000 DSG sports bra donation to deserving girl athletes!
Sports bras are an essential piece of equipment for girls but are often not provided. Research shows that by the age of 14, girls quit sports at two times the rate of boys.* In addition, 73% of girls have concerns about their body when they play.**
The Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation believes that every girl should have the equipment they need to play. So in the summer of 2021, The Dick’s Foundation will be donating 100,000 DSG brand sports bras to under resourced girl athletes across the country to help keep them in the game.
