Will You Take the SheIS Challenge?

Are you a fan of women’s sports? Do you believe that the opportunity for girls and women to excel in sports is important for their and their communities’ development? Then take the SheIS Challenge! The non-profit organization SheIS, a collective of sports leagues, leaders, and athletes, is challenging you to show support and secure future opportunities for women and girls in sport. They believe in promoting the top athletes and leagues via viewership and attendance, and by bolstering girl’s involvement in athletics at a grass-roots level. Through supporting women’s professional leagues and athletes, such as SheIS partners the National Women’s Hockey League, the National Women’s Soccer League, and the women of WWE, you make the career of an athlete more viable to girls and women. In addition, by supporting the participation of girls in all levels of sport from the bottom up, you create the strong women of the future.

You can take the challenge by signing up on their website, attending sporting events from partnering leagues and organizations (you can access a schedule here), and by using the hashtags #SheISsport and #SheISChallenge. Signing up will make a real impact, as for every signup they receive before July 7th, 2019, SheIS will donate one dollar to grassroots organizations that support women and girls in sport. Will you take the challenge to make tomorrow better for women’s sports?
