This March as we celebrate Women’s History Month we would like to celebrate our history at the Women’s Sports Foundation and the incredible and powerful women who have served as our President’s and guided us. We caught up with Wendy Hilliard who served as President of the Women’s Sports Foundation from 1995-1996 and continues to be an integral part of the WSF family.
Wendy Hilliard is a former champion rhythmic gymnast and President of the Women’s Sports Foundation. She now acts as the Director of our GoGirlGo! New York City program, making sure all Big Apple girls have their shot at a healthy, happy life through the on-the-ground girl-serving programs who use our award-winning GoGirlGo! curriculum. Last week Wendy traveled to Los Angeles to represent GoGirlGo! at the LA84 Foundation Summit where she joined the panel “Making the Case for Youth Sports.” After the event, Wendy shared with us some of her takeaways from the conference and her personal perspective on why sports for girls matter.
