Hey “Good Girl”!
It looks like Carrie Underwood is sharing the wealth in one very special way.
The country superstar is taking her CALIA fitness and lifestyle brand to new heights by teaming up with the Dicks Sporting Goods Foundation. Together, the partners are donating $500,000 in sports Matter Grants to female youth sports teams across the country.
Carrie took to her hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma to give a deserving group of middle and high school female athletes one very ginormous surprise. The “Church Bells” singer presented a Sports Matter grant of $100,000 to the Checotah School District Girls 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 press release. “Being active in youth sports while growing up helped set the foundation and passion for making fitness an important part of my life today.”
While Carrie is known best for her musical talent, the blonde bombshell is no stranger to the athletic lifestyle. Aside from being married to a pro athlete, Carrie is one of the fittest stars in country music. In fact, it wasn’t long ago that she graced the cover of US Weekly’s “Best Bodies” issue.
The Dicks Sporting Goods Foundation will be working with Carrie’s local C.A.T.S (Checotah, Animal, Town and School) Foundation and Checotah High School’s Principal and Athletic Director, Brian Terry, to distribute the grant to the girls softball, track and field, basketball, cheerleading and golf teams.
