YMS is pleased to announce that we will be collecting new sports bras and donations at EPIC in support of The Sports Bra Project (TSBP) and their mission to increase access to sports for women & girls by addressing barriers to participation. TSBP provides new sports bras to girls & women in areas where the lack of access to this basic piece of equipment can prevent participation in sports. Read More about TSBP here.
