Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC. This area is commonly called the “Research Triangle” or “The Greater Raleigh Area”.
Many of us are in graduate school or are employed full time. When we are not being studious and responsible, we like to cook and bake (lots of our recipes are vegan and gluten free), do group strength workouts at our local gym (O2 Fitness), ride our bikes or rollerblade around our expansive greenway system and local parks, have impromptu dance parties, go to parks with our dogs (most of the athletes have furry friends), attend local events that support the community and drink an absurd amount of coffee!
Causes I Care About
The program Bras for Girls is a charitable donation program started by Oiselle. Bras for Girls provides sports bras to young women (usually middle school age) so that they feel comfortable continuing to participate in sports while experiencing changes in their bodies. Many young girls quit athletics because they either don’t have access to sports bras or don’t feel comfortable. This ties nicely into our greater goal of being role models to younger generations of female athletes. As an all-female team, we’ve hosted events for high school girls in partnership with RunRaleigh PT, encouraging them to find their love of the sport while promoting health and positive body images. We are all also passionate about educating our local community about healthy running and recovery practices.
