The last few weeks have been crazy. I’ve been a traveling one woman circus! One of my highlights this past month was going to the Women’s Sports Foundation’s Annual Salute. They invited some of America’s best female athletes across all sports, in celebration of women sports! It was extremely inpsiring to meet some of these ladies and hear their stories. This night, WSF raised just over 1.1 million dollars for girls in sports! So sick.

My favorite moment was meeting 22 yr old Katie Spotz, who was the first women to ever row from Senegal West Africa over the Atlantic ocean to South America! SOLO! It took her 70 days and raised 70K for drinking water worldwide. Check her site www.rowforwater.com

Thanks to the Women’s Sports Foundation , Billie Jean King and Stacy Holland (and her crew) for making this event possible. The WSF is an organization that I’m working with to help advance the lives of the next generation through sports. It’s a non profit organization, and one of their main programs aimed at women is GoGirlGo! Check out their Grant programs and Ambassador Team Awards to be offered to economically disadvantaged girls.
