'DARE TO BARE' NYC
'Dare To Bare' is Movemeant Foundation's flagship outdoor charity fitness event and the largest body-positive event across the country.
Together, we 'dare' ourselves to overcome the fears of our physical appearance in celebration of our physical strength, emotional fortitude, mental grit and self-love. We move. We sweat. We dance. And we shed not just our shirts, but our insecurities—proving that bodies of all shapes and sizes are healthy and capable.
Thanks to all those that participated in Dare To Bare on Sunday, October 2nd at Union Square Park!
Mark your calendars and plan to join us in 2017!
Why We #DareToBareNYC
We’re in the midst of an epidemic. By middle school, 40-70 percent of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body, and body satisfaction hits rock bottom between the ages of 12 and 15. To compound body dissatisfaction, 51.7% of women reported no participation in any physical activity.
With each dollar raised, we are able to offer grants to schools, communities and other non-profit organizations—providing women across the country with opportunities to move in ways they never thought possible. With more than 20 million girls in the US between 5-18 that could use some movemeant, this is just the start of our work.
