Mayor Eric Garcetti, First Lady Amy Elaine Wakeland, and the Getty House Foundation Board of Directors hosted their annual sports clinic for girls in celebration of the landmark legislation known as Title IX, which ended gender discrimination in public education and federally assisted programs and is best known for its impact on high school and collegiate athletics.

The event kicked off with remarks from Renata Simril, the President and CEO of LA84 Foundation, and Olympian Janet Evans. Two hundred girls participated in a ten-part obstacle course followed by a stretch and cool down.
