Citta, a women’s lifestyle athletic wear company, is supporting the Dan’s Legacy Foundation during a month-long promotion from January 15th to February 15th. For each pair of tights sold, Citta will donate another pair of tights to the charity’s Fitness program for youth at risk.
“Citta wanted to find a way to give back to the community by working with and learning about a local charity. Dan’s Legacy’s holistic approach on providing wrap-around supports to youth makes them a great fit for Citta Activewear. Our hope is to develop a relationship and be able to work together ongoingly to highlight the amazing work done by this organization.”
A family-oriented lifestyle brand, Citta features ethically made high performance clothing and promotes positive body image and the empowerment of women.
“There is a strong alignment between Citta’s focus on celebrating and empowering women, and the philosophy behind our therapists’ work,” says Barbara Coates, Dan’s Legacy’s executive director. “We see the potential in all of our youth clients, and our team of therapists is helping these young people discover that in themselves. Regular exercise is critical to maintaining positive mental health and our Fitness Program is one of our most important wrap-around programs. We’re grateful to the team at Citta for their generous support.”
The majority of Dan’s Legacy’s clients are youth in or aging out of care, and face significant barriers accessing mental health and wrap-around programming. Dan’s Legacy’s therapists go directly to the youth wherever they are, they do not have a wait list and their services are free.
The Fitness Program is supervised by one of the organization’s therapists who is also a certified Fitness Instructor. Most of the youth do not have the funds to purchase athletic gear, and this donation of sports clothing will help more young women take part in the program.
