Have you ever wanted to have legs like Carrie Underwood? Those toned, muscular limbs we all admire as she walks the red carpet and hits the stage to perform? Well, you can start by picking up some workout gear from the new fall line of Calia by Carrie Underwood. Here’s the bad news: after you get the clothes, you still have to get in the gym.
Carrie partnered with Dick’s Sporting Goods, an athletic retailer, in 2014 to create the clothing line. Since then, Calia by Carrie Underwood and Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation have teamed up to donate $500,000 in Sports Matter grants to girls youth sports teams across the country. Carrie kicked off the partnership—back in June 2016—in her hometown of Checotah, Okla., when she surprised middle school and high school female students with a Sports Matter grant of $100,000 to the Checotah School District Athletic Programs.
“I am so honored to partner with The Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation to give back to my high school’s girls sports teams,” said Carrie in a statement. “Being active in youth sports while growing up helped set the foundation and passion for making fitness an important part of my life today. Participating in sports also taught me important life lessons about dedication and teamwork. Through this donation, we want to make sure there are plenty of opportunities for girls to play sports in Checotah for years to come.”
Watch as Carrie heads back home to Checotah to talk with three young women who shared their stories of how sports impacted their lives.
