I participated in the Sports Bra Challenge Sponsored by the Seak Foundation. Seak is a non for profit organization dedicated to empowering women to not determine self worth based on their appearance. The members of Seak address this issue by encouraging women to become active so that they can feel more comfortable as themselves, no matter what they look like. At Friends Seminary, I belong to a club that is called Seak, which practices the same ideas as the larger Seak foundation. That is why we all participated in the sports bra challenge. The challenge was an all day fitness event in Union Square where everyone spins together wearing only sports bras. To participate everyone must rent a bike, and the prices vary based on the location. All donations and proceeds from the event go towards women, different events, and the SEAK Builds Confidence Project, which is a project where the foundations joins forces with a school that does not have a gym or any fitness programs. The entire sports bra
challenge, was a incredible up lifting experience, and I am glad the club I belong to could contribute to such a remarkable cause.
