Fast and Female is a non-profit organization dedicated to the empowerment through sport of young women ages 9 to 19. By partnering with female Olympians, we offer inspiring programming all over North-America. Through our non-competitive and fun initiatives, we strive to retain girls in the competitive sports of cross-country skiing, biathlon and complementary summer endurance sports. In the long-term, we hope to be involved in all Olympic sports. Fast and Female is based in Canmore, Alberta and was founded in 2005 by olympic gold medalist in cross-country skiing – Chandra Crawford.
