Title IX May 23, 2006

Filed under: Community — kellyrand @ 3:05 am

For those of you hip to the political/legislative world of ground breaking policy you'll be familiar with Title IX – but a little refresher in history wouldn't hurt.

Title IX was enacted in 1972 and required that all schools receiving federal funds provide women and girls equal opportunity to compete in sports. From there, women and girls in participating in sports took off and we never looked back.

A company named after the ground breaking policy based in California offers great outdoor and sports wear. By continuing the idea of the legislation Title Nine also started a grant making institution, Starting Block, where they fund organizations that are committed to involving at risk girls in sports and fitness.

A company with a heart – it can't get better than this.
