Nashville, listen up. Something big is coming your way, and we want to be sure that you are the first to know. Straight out of NYC, We Dare to Bare, a fitness festival dedicated to female empowerment and positive body image will be popping up in town on November 4th, 2018.
We Dare to Bare is hosted by nonprofit organization Movemeant Foundation, an internationally recognized 501c3 nonprofit that uses fitness & physical movement as a tool to help young girls & women build self-worth and self-esteem. Movemeant implements global health and wellness impact programs in low-income, at-risk communities to provide girls with the funding and resources to build body-positivity, leadership skills, and confidence through fitness. Through our large-scale charity fitness festivals, such as We Dare to Bare, we've been able to create our own body-positive middle school curriculum that focuses on important issues like creating community, fueling your body, building confidence, the importance of movement and media perspective.
This year we are in 14 schools throughout the Bay Area and will be expanding our program into 36 middle schools in SF, NYC, Nashville, and Chicago in 2019! Impacting over 2000 low-income, at-risk girls, last year we gave over $80,000 in individual athletic scholarships to low-income girls internationally. This year we will grant $100,000 in scholarships to 1,000 girls around the world so they can pursue their movement goals. In total, through our large-scale events, campaigns, and impact programs we've impacted over 1 million women and girls since 2015.
Much of this impact is made possible by our annual We Dare To Bare festival, which is why we’ve decided to take it on the road to other fitness-crazed cities.
Known for our belly-baring days of body positivity and radical self-acceptance, expect your mind and heart to be opened when you participate in We Dare To Bare. All movers workout in complementary matching sports bras, and come together to embrace themselves at all shapes and sizes! And, the best part is, all proceeds from this festival go directly to a Movemeant’s impact programs! By participating, you’ll be directly impacting girls in YOUR community! Nothing to wait for! Grab your #girlsquad and fundraise as a team. If your team is the top fundraiser you will win a $500 shopping spree to Reebok! Other fundraising milestones include epic swag, complimentary pre-event rides at Verticity and so much more!
Nashville, we can’t wait to meet you!

While there are literally thousands of socially conscious organizations working in our Nashville, I wanted to briefly highlight just a few mission-minded Music City businesses—some whose whole operations are designed for doing good; others who weave generosity into larger business goals.
