NATIONAL TEEN SELF-ESTEEM MONTH – MAY 2019
TEEN TEAM FIT DAY-SATURDAY, MAY 18, 2019
Because She’s A Lady 501 (c) (3), (BSAL) is a proud participant of National Teen Self-Esteem Month. In recognition of this very important month, BSAL will sponsor a Teen Sports Team Fit Day, Saturday, May 18, 2019.
The non-profit organization will offer professional fittings and a quality sports bra to female teen sports team members, free of charge. Those teen team members (12-18 years of age) who may need and want a quality sports bra, should visit the All About Women’s Health Boutique, 33104 Grand River, Farmington, MI 48336, on Saturday, May 18, 2019, 9am to 5pm. The teen must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The parent/guardian must give written permission for the fitting.
“We must remember that a sports bra is not lingerie. It is a piece of sports equipment”, stated Kelly Freeman, board chair of BSAL. The bras are being provided to encourage our young ladies to stay active, play and participate in sports. Studies show that by age 17, more than ½ of girls will quit playing sports altogether. Fifty percent of women report some pain or discomfort in their breasts during exercise. Seventy three percent of girls report having breast related concerns regarding exercise and sports.
Mariam Searcy, Board CEO stated “a sports bra is equally as important to a girl as jock support is to a boy. Bras are oftentimes not even listed as required items for sports participation”.
Teens and parents should call BSAL, (248) 477-2729) for more information. www.becauseshesalady.org.
The average cost of a quality sports bra is $60.00.
Donations can be made via website. Bras available while supplies last.
