Britney rode her bike to raise money for Michelle Rogers, a San Bernardino High School teacher who puts together programs and workshops to help young girls bolster their own self image and confidence, and not let society or popular media dictate what it thinks it should be. While teaching snowboarding this past winter, “I had probably three different girls come up to me at different times – they were no older than 5 – and they asked me if they looked fat in their jackets. I think that’s ridiculous that it’s already happening at that young age!” Read the rest of the story here! And Britney chronicled here journey in her blog: “Going the Distance for CONFIDENCE!” As a father of 3 daughters the pressures on young women have today is incredible! Way to go Britney & thanks!
