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!

Title Nine - 40 Years

40 years ago Congress signed landmark legislation, Title IX, attacking the gender divide in sports. Today that divide has been virtually erased. In 1972, only 30,000 girls participated in high school sports. Today it’s over 3,000,000!! Because many of us here at Title Nine, including our founder, were there in the early years, we think there’s a lot to celebrate this year.
