WOMEN CELEBRATE SPORTS

What an inspiring event! This past week FOOT TRAFFIC had the privilege of being one of the sponsors for WIN for KC WOMEN’S SPORTS AWARDS CELEBRATION .https://www.sportkc.org/win-for-kc/awards-celebration.  It is the largest luncheon in the country celebrating National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

The annual luncheon served over 1500 women and men in the community that support this amazing organization that recognizes girls and women of all ages that have contributed to sports and fitness. The event begins with an exuberant March of Champions that celebrates all Kansas and Missouri female high school state champions. Seeing these young women proudly being honored for their participation and success was exciting.  

Several other women were honored for their leadership contributions in the local community and their stories were riveting.  From those challenged with physical concerns to those still thriving in their 90’s, women were recognized for their courage and their contributions to others. 

The speaker at this year’s event was Natalie Coughlin, all-time record holder for most Olympic medals among American women (ties with Jenny Thompson and Dara Torres).  She was the most decorated female athlete of both the 2008 Beijing Games and the 2004 Athens Games. She continues today to  inspire all girls and women to participate in sports. She is the most decorated female swimmer in World Championships history.

Today, girls now have so many opportunities in school programs and organizations like WIN to participate in a variety of events that encourages teamwork, leadership and fun.  Every summer WIN sponsors a summer camp call Camp WIN which introduces girls in the community to approximately 14 sports and fitness activities over 4 days. The young athlets walk away with life skills such as ATTITUDE. PREPARATION, COURAGE and SPORTSMANSHIP.  https://www.sportkc.org/win-for-kc/camp-win
