Growing up, I played volleyball, basketball and ice hockey and even though I spent more time practicing than actually playing in real games, I know how important those experiences were for me and what they did for my character, my ability to work with others and how my coaches and fellow athletes helped me realize my full potential.
Young, female athletes need strong role models and coaches on their side, cheering them on and encouraging them to work and play hard.
Gatorade and the Women’s Sports Foundation is asking you to make a pledge to support young athletes BECOME the best they can be. Gatorade will donate one dollar up to $10,000 to the Women’s Sports Foundation for every pledge received.
Simply read the pledge, click to commit and Gatorade will donate a dollar in support of girls’ and women’s sports. The donation will help ensure there are opportunities for all youth who want to get physically active, get involved in competitive athletics and get in the game.
If you’d like the chance to win an autographed soccer ball from soccer star, Brandi Chastain, please leave a comment after you’ve made your pledge, letting us know that you’re helping young athletes BECOME and please help us spread the word by asking others to make this pledge with you.
One winner will be selected, at random, on September 26th. Gatorade will send the autographed soccer ball to the winner directly.
