October 9, 2018 | NASHVILLE, TN – For the first time ever, Movemeant Foundation is partnering with BOOTHCAMP Gym to bring their one-of-a-kind fitness festival, We Dare to Bare (#wedaretobare), to Nashville, Tennessee on Sunday, November 4, 2018.
We Dare to Bare has hosted thousands of participants and spectators in both New York and San Francisco, who raise money by taking part in inspiring, high-energy group fitness classes. Empowering women to use fitness to find self-confidence and positive body image, Movemeant Foundation encourages participants to step out of their comfort zones as they dare to recognize and embrace the strength of their body. With attendees encouraged to participate in Movemeant’s symbol of confidence, the We Dare to Bare sport bra, the event demonstrates to women of all ages, particularly young girls that all body types are strong and should be celebrated.
“We Dare to Bare is a day to recognize and honor beauty in all its different shapes and sizes,” said Jenny Gaither, Founder of Movemeant Foundation. “Together, we want to help women build positive body image through fitness and shift the dialogue from focusing on you want to lose to what you can gain – confidence, strength, and a positive sense of self. The funds we raise will help provide access to life-changing health and fitness programs that can help transform the lives of women and girls.”
“I worry what others will think and how they will judge my curves,” said San Francisco attendee Liz Colhoun, “However, that fear is also a motivator, for myself and for my daughter. My body may not be ‘Instagram perfect,’ but it is strong, and it’s mine, and I’m proud of it. In a world where women are expected to sacrifice themselves for others, while always looking the part, that’s the message, I want my daughter to hear.”
With an annual fundraising goal of $500,000, Movemeant Foundation plans to dedicate $100,000 to its body-positive scholarship program with She Plays We Win, helping girls from around the word build self-worth through sport by providing individual athletic scholarships, equipment, mentors and funding.
The Foundation also plans to use funds to expand its specially curated body-positive middle school Movemeant curriculum for underprivileged, at-risk youth, which currently helps girls in middle schools in New York and the Bay Area.
Taking place at BOOTHCAMP Gym, Movemeant Foundation and BOOTHCAMP are excited to welcome instructors from some of the city’s most acclaimed fitness companies to We Dare To Bare including getFIT615 and more. With the purchase of a $40 ticket, participants will have access to four fitness classes and the festival experience, and will receive a gift bag from We Dare to Bare’s partners, as well as an official We Dare to Bare sports bra.
“I’m so excited to bring this event to Nashville and partner with Movemeant Foundation in their efforts. At BOOTHCAMP, we believe that community support is essential in reaching for our best selves, and that we are stronger together,” said Shawn Booth, founder of BOOTHCAMP. “What the Movemeant Foundation is doing for young girls and women across the country is such important work, and I couldn’t be happier to support this event and their message.”
