Fast and Female

Fast and Female is a really awesome organization started by Olympic Gold Medalist Chandra Crawford. After winning the gold, her life changed quite a bit and she felt she needed to do something to give back and to give more girls the opportunity to have this life changing experience. She started with just cross-country events in Canada but has since expanded to many different sports as well as into the United States. I have helped out with a couple of events and they have been really amazing things. Liz Stephen, a U.S. ski team member who lives in Park City a good chunk of the year has organized an event for October 8th. It will feature many many winter sports and will have Olympians from all of them. This event will also have a parent seminar that will have experts talking about sports psychology, injury prevention, and nutrition for developing female athletes. It is open to girls 9-19 and all abilities, even if you have never step foot on snow we will take you. Please, if you can help get the word out about the event, I would be very grateful.
