University of Georgia GymDawg Rachel Lukacs changes the game with a new personally-inspired leotard profiting the local Athen’s non-profit Lydia’s Place.

Iconic Leos reached out to Lukacs to collaborate on the design after the NCAA began allowing college athletes to monetize their name, image and likeness on June 30. “The Lukacs” leotard, which is decorated in strokes of various purples, blues and gray, embodies Lukacs’ love for the ocean and her “passion to help others” according to the Iconic Leos website.

The purple represents the main color of Lydia’s Place, a home serving young women who are transitioning to independence out of homelessness or foster care.
