WATCH: Girls Get Inspired to Stay Active Through Mentoring Initiative with Champion and Collegiate Athletes

On Oct. 16, to conclude our Athlete Leadership Connection, the Women’s Sports Foundation teamed with the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) for a mentoring initiative that connected nearly 50 girls from our community programs with champion and collegiate athletes. The event combined play and education and was centered around exposing the girls to the benefits of sport and staying active. In addition to the NBPA, we would also like to thank WSF National Partners espnW and NBC Sports Group for supporting the event. Check out the video for highlights!
