Childcare grants. Together with Allyson Felix, we launched a first-of-its-kind childcare grant program that committed $200,000 to help fund childcare costs for professional mom-athletes traveling to competitions. Nine mom-athletes, including six who competed in Tokyo, were named recipients - giving them the resources and support that mom-athletes need to focus on excelling in their careers.

"As a mom and an athlete, I know first-hand the obstacles women face in sports. These grants are about showing the industry that all mom-athletes need this same comprehensive support to be able to participate in their athletic endeavors."

-Allyson Felix, seven-time gold medalist and three-time World Champion
