Earlier this year, Calia and the Dick’s Foundation announced plans to donate $500,000 in Sports Matter grants to female youth sports teams across the country. The first grant was awarded in June in Carrie’s Oklahoma hometown to athletic programs in the Checotah School District.
“I am so honored to partner with the Dick’s Sporting Goods Foundation as we continue to give back to girls’ sports teams across the country,” said Carrie. “Through today’s donation, we aim to support the girls’ athletic programs in Houston, providing many girls with the opportunity to participate in sports.”
