GIRLS IN THE GAME NFP
May 19, 2010
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.
