Athlete Advisory Panel
Each year we invite a small a group of athletes to be closely involved with the Foundation. Their time, energy and perspective helps advance our mission.
One of the questions that we get asked most often by athletes is “How can I be more involved? What more can I do to help the Foundation?” The Athlete Advisory Panel was created to be the answer to those questions.
Each year, we ask a small a group of athletes to take part in this structured level of involvement with the Foundation. They act as the face and voice of the Foundation by promoting our mission, attending our events and spreading the word about us to fellow athletes, to their sponsors and to fans. Most importantly, they are the eyes and ears for all female athletes, telling us what work needs to be done and giving us insight into how we can continue to help.
The Foundation’s President, Grete Eliassen, and Past President, Angela Hucles lead this amazing group as Co-Chairs. Those chosen to be part of the Athlete Advisory Panel have repeatedly demonstrated their support for the Foundation’s mission and their eagerness and desire to do whatever they can to help young girls and their fellow female athletes.
