Olympic Gold medalist Allyson Felix and Athleta are doing their part to support athlete moms.
Felix, the apparel company and the Women’s Sports Foundation (WSF) have launched The Power of She Fund: Child Care Grants.
We strive to remove barriers for mom-athletes and celebrate who they are holistically
This new $200,000 grant program has made a commitment to cover childcare costs for professional mom-athletes traveling to competitions.
“This is going to make a huge difference in their lives,” Felix told “Good Morning America.” “Childcare is one of the huge barriers that we have to overcome.”
She continued, “I really do hope also that this spurs an industry-wide change, and we look to support women holistically.”
Don’t forget to catch Allyson when she runs for the gold again this summer during the Tokyo Olympics.
