This past October, Fabletics launched the “What Moves You Grant, to give away a total of $20,000 in grants to four deserving projects. Our mission was to find women dedicated to improving health and wellness in their communities. We were overwhelmed with the response! During our open submission period, we received hundreds of inspiring applications. It was impossible to choose the 8 finalists, and an even more difficult feat to choose the 4 recipients.
Fabletics Co-founder, Kate Hudson, and the Fabletics staff are proud to announce that the 2013 What Moves You Grant awardees are:
- Amy Merritt – Optimistic Kids EnergiZing, Georgetown, SC
- Constance Anderson – Tiger Fit Club, Spring Hill, FL
- Michelle Weber – Weber Ranch, Perrysburg, OH
- Sandrine Harris – Kinesoma, Lakeville, CT
