If watching athletes like Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky dominate the 2016 Rio Olympics has taught us anything, it's that there ain't nothing wrong with playing #LikeAGirl.
That's why we were psyched to learn about Always' partnership with Walmart, which allows them to provide resources to teams around the country and contribute to the goal of keeping girls in sports. This "50 Teams, 50 States" program - part of Always' #LikeAGirl Keep Playing initiative - will support one girl's team in every state before the year is over.
The program launched with the reveal of the first team transformation in Hulbert, Oklahoma. This summer, Always and Walmart met with the Lady Riders junior high girls basketball team to hear about their challenges and empower them to keep playing by providing equipment, uniforms and facility upgrades.
