Girls quit sports at 6x the rate of boys in their early teens which means they are missing out on all the benefits of sport participation. To change that, Fast and Female was founded in 2005 by Canadian cross country skier and Olympic gold medalist Chandra Crawford. Join us on our mission to keep girls healthy, happy, and active in sports through their teens.
