Please join us for a special event benefiting Educational First Steps (EFS), “Striving for Greatness,” starring Allyson Felix on February 20, 2024, at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. This memorable evening features a seated dinner in the Ritz-Carlton’s ballroom beginning at 6:30 PM and includes a pre-event VIP meet and greet at 5:30 PM. Led by Allyson, the night is a celebration of greatness, education, and leadership.

Allyson is the most decorated Track and Field Olympian in history, as an eleven-time Olympic medalist, seven-time Olympic Champion, and owner of a mind-blowing thirty-one medals combined at the Olympics and World Championships. She is an advocate for female athletes’ rights, and her advocacy has transformed corporate policies surrounding maternity, creating greater protections, guaranteed pay, and even complimentary childcare for women, and competing athletes.

EFS President & CEO, Vickie Allen-Brown shared, “This year’s event, featuring Allyson Felix reflects EFS’ core commitment to women’s leadership and children’s wellbeing. Allyson is the embodiment of both values on and off the track. We are thrilled to welcome her back to North Texas, and I am confident that her message will be one that shines a light on the importance of childcare to our community and economy.”
