#ShareTheStrength: Women’s Sports Foundation
In light of the Rio 2016 Olympics happening this month, we are sharing the strength with the Women’s Sports Foundation! In 2012, I (Megan) actually received a Travel and Training Fund grant from the Women’s Sports Foundation when I was a bobsled athlete. Thanks to that grant I was able to travel to Europe to represent Team USA and compete in two European Cup races in Igls, Austria. The Women’s Sports Foundation was established in 1974 to advance the lives of women and girls through sports and physical activity and it did just that for me in 2012.
From the WSF Website:
“Our mission today – we are dedicated to creating leaders by ensuring girls access to sports. We provide financial fuel to aspiring champion athletes. We fund groundbreaking research. We educate. We advocate. And we help communities get girls active. Sure, there’s a long way to go. But, it’s gratifying to see our hard work make sure a difference.”
So happy to say WSF is still at it and has given out an impressive 33 grants this year!
