In the heart of the Iron Triangle, Jasmine Malabed and her partner Dennis Hoskins are transforming a vacant lot into a 2-acre public bike park for kids. Getting kids outside and active is a vision we can get behind here at Title Nine, especially when it’s in our own backyard of Richmond, California.

Thanks to You, More Women Will Run

On Inauguration Day, we pledged to give 9% of sales, online and in stores, to support women running for office. We are proud to share that we raised $15,000 together, to support the non-partisan nonprofit organization, She Should Run.

Thanks to you, we are helping to expand the pool of future female elected leaders. Since the election, She Should Run has welcomed thousands of new women of all parties into their programs–programs which, in the past, have served just a few hundred women.

“The She Should Run team is truly grateful and energized by your support! Know that this donation will go a long way towards our team scaling our services for the over 7,000 new women in our programs now.” – Clare Bresnahan, Executive Director, She Should Run

Bras for the Ho’opa

As part of our Starting Block¬†program here at Title Nine, the Bra Brigade functions to provide sports bras to girls who haven’t had the opportunity to experience solid, comfortable support. We’ve connected with everyone from a local high school running club to breast cancer survivors training for a triathlon. In this particular case we worked with the parents and coaches for the Ho’opa girls volleyball team in Hawaii to get them fitted for their new bras. The girls then went on to compete in nationals on the mainland!

If you or anyone you know is working with a group of at-risk girls who are in need of some “support”, send them our way! Drop us a line at startingblock@titlenine.com and we’ll be happy to see what we can do for you!
