Support Your Girls

20 04 2009
There was a time – not so long ago- when there were no running clothes for women.  Folks figured that women had no business running.  You may have seen the picture of Katherine Switzer in her sweats being pulled off the Boston Marathon course (although maybe the male clothing was intentional – the race was only open to men).

Ten years later, a couple of running women began building their own running clothes, and, now, most of you ladies who run and walk are quite familiar with the apparel company, Moving Comfort.     Over 30 years later, the Moving Comfort brand is still about being a company “by women, for women.”

Moving Comfort has recently launched a campaign called “Support Your Girls” — an effort to raise funds for Girls in the Game whose goal is to “provide and promote sports and fitness oppportunities, nutrition and health education, and leadership development to enhance the overall health and well being of girls aged six to eighteen.”

33% of the proceeds of Moving Comfort’s Support Your Girls t-shirts will be donated to Girls in the Game.  Fleet Feet Sports in Memphis has a long history with Moving Comfort.  We are proud to support their efforts in raising these funds, and we are happy to be one of the few stores in the country where you can find these cute shirts.
