I am a former employee of Girls in the Game and a current Advisory Board Member. I joined Girls in the Game after several years as a teacher in a low income school in Chicago. I saw the impact of poor nutrition and a lack of physical activity on our students - kids were ill, couldn't concentrate, acted out, and bullied one another. Girls in the Game serves the clients who need them the most - they help girls feel empowered, get healthy and make good choices. I fully believe in this program and have seen its impact on girls firsthand. This is not just a 10 week program that ends when the school year ends. They provide year-round opportunities for girls to be happy, healthy and strong. Go GIG!

As an exercise physiologist and advisory board member I can't speak highly enough about how important Girls in the Game is to promote for the girls involved. GIG encourages positive health behaviors in a way that is fun and empowering for all involved.

It's all about the girls! I was one of the very first staff members of Girls in the Game when it started. It's been an amazing experience witnessing the growth of this organization, its programs and its services that reach so many deserving girls. the commitment, knowledge and passion of the executive director, the staff, the board as well as all of the volunteers, supporters and sponsors is incredible and contagious. Given the need for growing girls' nutritional awareness and providing girls the tools and programs that enable confidence building and high self-esteem, Girls in the Game is one of the most unique girl-serving non profits in the country.

As a physician, I know the importance that Girls in the Game has on the overall health and well-being of girls. This program has taken a leading role in reversing the trend of childhood obesity and associated health risks faced by girls everywhere. As an athlete, woman and someone who cares about kids, I believe in the mission of Girls in the Game to bring the power of sports, nutrition and self-esteem to thousands of girls. I have met the girls involved in this prorgam and know they will be the next generation of leaders in this country.

There is no other rounded program for gilrs- like Girls in the Game! It is a changing experince for partipants, parents, and staff. The evidence based learning speaks for itself including: • Significant correlations found between the following variables: 􀂃 Physical appearance, self-esteem, and body satisfaction 􀂃 Global self-esteem and depression 􀂃 Confidence and school self-esteem The girls learn a true lifestyle change and would not be where they are in life without the program.

Girls in the Game is a top notch provider of youth services to girls in the Chicagoland area. They bring sports, fitness, health, nutrition and leadership opportunities through after school and summer camp programs to underserved girls who otherwise would never have these opportunities.

Girls who participate in the programs say to me that they would just watch TV after school, but now they love to play soccer, softball and basketball. Parents say their child used to be so quiet, but now they are confident and not afraid to speak up!

As an advisory board member, I have had the opportunity to interact with the awesome girls that participate in this program, its amazing staff and the wonderful volunteers that take time out of their schedules to play a small part in making a huge difference in the lives of the participants. The positive impact sports and athletics can have on building the self-esteem of girls can been seen with all taking part in the activities. Not only are the girls stronger physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Girls in the Game encourages in the girls in the classroom as well and to be the best in all aspects of their lives. The staff helps the girls find their gifts and build on them. I am proud to say I support Girls in the Game.

It is amazing to see the impact Girls in the Game has on the lives of school age girls. The program's focus on sports, health, leadership and life is making a difference for over 2,500 girls in the Chicago area. These young ladies learn so many valuable skills including athleticism, leadership, and teamwork. Additionally, they learn how to choose healthy lifestyles including nutrition and health education. Finally, they build confidence in themselves and establish a positive self-image through their interactions with coaches and fellow participants. Girls in the Game is the only organization in Chicago that focuses specifically on girls, providing sports opportunities usually reserved for boys. We need to support the efforts of Girls in the Game to impact the lives of more girls across the broader Chicago area.
