MORE INFO:

Movemeant Foundation, the national non-profit organization dedicated to teachinggirls self-confidence and body positivity through fitness and movement, announced an exciting
collaboration with influential photographer, Christin Rose. Celebrated for her inspiring portraits of young female athletes via her #ShePlaysWeWin project, Christin’s passion to encourage confidence in girls through sports as they grow up, perfectly pairs with the efforts of the Movemeant Foundation.

To further empower and aid girls facing personal challenges, Movement and Rose are teaming up to award $20,000 in financial grants to up to 20 girls of economically-disadvantaged communities and with high incidences of health-risk behaviors. These grants will fuel the positive power of sport and fitness on a young women’s self-confidence and its lasting effects throughout her life.


Grant recipients of the #ShePlaysWeWin project will each receive $1,000 in financial assistance to pursue sports and fitness, from coaching to equipment to apparel. For some, it may also include an up-close-andpersonal photo shoot by Christin Rose and the opportunity for those photographs to be shared through a multitude of distribution channels with the goal of inspiring other young girls into action.“I am so excited to be a part of this collaboration with the Movemeant Foundation. I’ve been searching for a way to give back and help young girls through my photography,” says Christin Rose, LA based Photographer and creator of the #ShePlaysWeWin project. “Being involved in sports had such an impact on my self-esteem when I was growing up, and I thought if I could show that somehow- if I could capture what it means to be innocent and brave- then I could encourage young women to hold onto that.”

Financial grants from the Movemeant Foundation and the Christin Rose #ShePlaysWeWin project will be awarded to girls nationwide between the ages of  8 - 16, paying particular attention to those in underserved communities who have limited access to health, fitness and sports programming. Each grant is designed to support sports and other physical activity programs that are either new to the recipient or expand on her existing participation in the sport. It may be used for sports instruction, athletic equipment, athletic apparel and coaching/mentorship and it may only be used for girls’ sports/physical activity programs.
